Marvin Gapultos is a Certified Cicerone and the author of the Filipino food blog, Burnt Lumpia, and two cookbooks: The Adobo Road Cookbook: A Filipino Food Journey (2013) and Pulutan! Filipino Bar Bites, Appetizers, and Street Eats (2018). Once upon a time, he was also the founder and co-owner of The Manila Machine, Los Angeles' first Filipino food truck. When he isn't cooking or writing about Filipino food, Marvin is usually enjoying a beer or cocktail, and thinking about what to eat with said beer or cocktail. As such, Marvin covered bars and breweries for Serious Eats, and he was also a "Bar Bites" recipe contributor.
