You Can Now Get Bougie SPAM Musubis Wrapped In Edible Gold


Gold-topped desserts have been pretty popular this past year, with gold-covered ice cream, apples, and chocolate all going viral. One SF food truck is getting in on the golden food trend with their own take: A $100 Gold SPAM® Musubi.

Created by the 808 Poke Shack for SPAM Restaurant Month, this fancy SPAM musubi has flecks of gold on both the inside and outside. The sushi rice is mixed with honey, rice vinegar, and gold furikake flakes, joining a caramelized slab of SPAM that’s marinated in a miso teriyaki sauce for 24 hours.

The two are then wrapped together with both nori sheets and edible gold leaf to give the musubi a unique sheen.

This is a more pricey musubi than ones you can normally buy, as one of these gold-wrapped eats will set you back $100. But hey, when else can you say that you’ve eaten a golden SPAM® musubi?

808 Poke Truck will have the $100 musubi available for the entire month of August as part of SPAM® Restaurant Month, where several other unique SPAM®-centric items will be debuting at restaurants across the nation.

Spam Musubi Tater Tots Are The Ultimate Fusion Of Iconic Snacks

When you think of iconic appetizers, your list better feature two heavy-hitters: tater tots and Spam musubi. Now, let’s shake the universe up a little bit and combine the two. A mind-blowing concept, right?

Right.

Enter MFK By Aysee in Anaheim, California, a modern Filipino kitchen that’s flipping the script on traditional Filipino fare by injecting some vibrant and creative takes on many of the items in their menu. One prime example of such ingenuity is their Spam musubi tater tots. I know, I know. I drooled a little saying that, too. We can only hope to be as perfect as this appetizer concept.

Taking the crispiest of tots and topping it with all the goodness that makes up a Spam musubi — think lemon crema, Sriracha crema, musubi sauce — is an iteration of tater tots that’s ready to take the top spot in our collective bellies’ cravings. Snag a serving of them now and trust in your perfect intuition that fusions of life’s bests is the way to go.

These Calzones Are Stuffed With Spam Musubi And The Cheese Pulls Are Insane

If you’re a fan of Spam Musubi, you’re going to love its Italian cousin, the Spam Musubi Calzone.

That’s right, Hobo Co. Pizza in Anaheim, California, took everything you love about Spam Musubi and put it in a calzone-style vessel, so you can have the best of both worlds at once.

These exclusive calzones will be making waves at Foodbeast’s meat-loving food festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at MainPlace Mall.

Using white rice, fried Spam pieces, nori, pineapple, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Sriracha drizzle, this bad boy will either make you feel like you’re grubbing in Hawaii for one bite, then Italy for the next bite.

The catch is that you won’t find these at Hobo Co.’s restaurant, but they will be one of the exclusive items found at Meat Street’s Marketplace this Saturday, April 22, in Santa Ana, California.

Brace Yourself For Mess Hall Canteen’s ‘SPAM Bomb’

FOODBEAST’s upcoming meat festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at Main Place Mall, is about to turn the wildest dreams of SPAM lovers and meat aficionados into a never-before-seen experience that will showcase unique, MEAT STREET exclusive recipes you won’t find at your local county fair. (Get your tickets here!)

One of the vendors at the festival is Mess Hall Canteen, who has become a model innovator in the mobile food industry, creating share-worthy gourmet dishes that push the limitations of what can be accomplished in a food truck. And they’re bringing plenty of that artillery to MEAT STREET.

Brace yourselves, Mess Hall Canteen is about to set off the SPAM BOMB: a crispy, and cheesy take on Spam musubi. Imagine melty mozzarella and pepper jack cheese, with sliced HICKORY SMOKE SPAM wrapped in a tempura battered nori, and deep fried until golden brown.

Get your cameras ready, because the SPAM BOMB is about to blow up on social media.

Earlier this month, the world was introduced to Mess Hall’s other MEAT STREET item — The Beef Shank, a deep-fried sous vide beef shank, smothered in chipotle barbecue sauce. But, you know that’s wasn’t all the ammo they were packing.

As MEAT STREET gets closer, stay tuned in and you’ll get a chance to preview all the juicy exclusive items that will be available for those in attendance at MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana, Calif., April 22.

Earlier, the world got its first look at Doner Saltado, a MEAT STREET specific recipe created by So Cal-based Doner G Turkish & Mediterranean Grill.

Feast Your Eyes On The Cheesiest Musubi Ever

Tell me the last time deep frying something didn’t make it taste exponentially better, and I’ll tell you that you’re a damn liar!  Deep fried avocados, deep fried pizza, deep fried musubi… I just went from six to midnight.  Now add melty cheese.  *head explosion*

Enter the ‘Cheesy Musubi’ from Sam Choy’s Poke to the Max, located in Seattle, WA,  which in specific is a classic spam musubi with egg, fried to crispy perfection.  Drench that in a velvety béchamel cheese and consider us lost in the sauuuce (Brrrrr).

If you were looking for a new way to have a Hawaiian classic, this is your place and dish.  If nothing else, consider this your excuse to make a trip up to the Pacific Northwest.
