It always comes as a surprise to those new to island culture how much we love our Spam. If you want to see Spam creativity, look no further than the annual Spam cooking contest at the Maui Fair. And everyone who arrives on Maui has to try that old breakfast staple: Spam Musubi. Seriously, I think it’s written in the state constitution. Anyway, the rice and pan-fried Spam (sometimes flavored with teriyaki) that are smashed into a plexiglass rectangular mold and then wrapped in seaweed makes one of the island’s best delicacies. Say what you want, but you have to admit its pretty ono. Located island-wide; foodland.com
Best Spam Musubi Foodland We often see the words “local delicacy” next to Spam Musubi, and there’s truth in that. You take one scoop rice and one slab of Spam, add a little teriyaki sauce and you’ve got the Best of Maui Spam Musubi. Foodland keeps this hot number under the warming lights in the morning. The balance of a carbohydrate foundation with salty Spam is just one of the many joys of local culinary delights. Foodland.com. @jenrusso Runner-up: Minit Stop
