While on our coffee run this morning, I had a strange craving for…SPAM!! The fact that there was a Hawaiian BBQ place right next to Starbucks probably only fueled the cravings even more. I know, it’s really strange that someone would ever crave spam but I like it a lot! Maybe it’s frowned upon where I live (trendy, hipster, health nuts!), but it’s all the rage in Hawaii!
This is spam musubi, and it’s one of my favorite ways to eat spam! In case you did not know what spam musubi was, it’s just a block of rice with a piece of grilled spam on top with some sauce in between (in my case, this was teriyaki) wrapped in nori (seaweed). This was my first time ordering spam musubi at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, and it was okay. It was about $3.50 for two pieces, but on Tuesdays they are only $1 each! Let’s just say that if I had another random spam craving, I won’t be going back there. Unless that spam craving happened to be on a Tuesday, then why not!
Next up: Costco!
After running some more errands, we found ourselves next to Costco. I kind of like the outside atmosphere of the food court at Costco. Sure it’s not the most glamorous, but it’s a great place for a quick bite to eat. For less than $2 you can get a hot dog and a drink! Since I felt kind of full from eating one of the spam musubis, we shared a hot dog. Actually I just took a few nibbles, but it was still good! I have a tendency to drown my hot dog in mustard, and since we were sharing I few squirts of ketchup for him :)
ps. I love mustard! I pour globs of mustard on my corn dogs! I dip my fries in mustard! In fact, I’ve eaten mustard out of those little packages before! It’s my condiment of choice for all things that need dipping!
What are some of your random food craves throughout the day?
