After a long search for Spam… which is actually HARDER than you’d imagine in Hawaii, we found Spam Musubi at Iyasume Musubi…. we had seen “spam” on the Ono’s menu but we wanted musubi… — MOO-SOO-BEE — In a small alleyway behind the Hyatt Hotel [around King’s Village] WE FOUND IT!!!! — double thanks to @bnbutterscotch for the heads up :D We came the day before but it was already closed [opens at 6am but closes at like 8pm] so we were up and early for a breakfast of spam musubi the next day!
Look at all of the options on the menu *jaw drops*
And of course we had to hit up the bacon & egg one!!!
I ended up buying one of the shirts :D So cute!! Musubi head!
Memorabilia all over the walls.. including Obama!
Obama was here :D
We ordered and grabbed a table [there are only two inside and one outside] and thankfully we got there early because it got crowded really soon after…. basically right behind us. Everything is freshly made to order in the back [aside from the stuff you buy from the front] so it took awhile to come out – but SO worth the wait!
Beef Bowl, Curry Bowl, Spam Musubis
The curry was delicious. And even though it’s just like the out of the box curry that I like to make at home – delicious… just wish there was more than a piece of chicken in it.. but didn’t matter because the rice was sticky but still separate. Perfect japanese rice.
Sweet Beef Bowl, up close
The beef was fatty and a little on the sweet side for me… but very tender.. and the rice, oh man I love the rice.
Musubis: Spam Ume [Plum], Spam, Spam Egg & Bacon, Spam Egg & Cucumber
While I loved the sweet tart plum with the musubi.. and as much as I adore bacon [which was a little soft] the cucumber was my favorite.
Fluffy grains of rice… the crunch salty nori… salty hammy spam, the creamy soft egg and the crunch of the fresh crisp cucumber. AMAZING!
Basically this is the first time I’ve had spam. I think I had a piece before a few years ago in some homemade Korean dish/stirfry but that’s about it. Spam has always kind of scared me, but this was SO tasty.. I’m not a ham girl, but I must say… I’m digging the salty ham in can ;D SHHH!!!
Me and Musubi Heads are twins… aren’t we? Hahaha… too funny!!!! I want to steal it home!!
We bought 6 more musubis to go… all spam… :D
Then we shopped around King’s Villa… Village? I thought it was village..whichever.. it was like a little Japan town with tons of touristy stores and a really cool 50s diner selling antiques [like old coke bottles and old barbies!!!]
Molesting the soldier… I’m just a really inappropriate person *for shame*
