Our Top 5: Spam musubi


By Jennifer Yamada

Spam musubi are not all created equal. As one of Hawaii’s favorite quick bites, many different versions are available. For my list, I focused on traditional ones, and considered the overall taste of the Spam and whether there was a good Spam-to-rice ratio.

It was difficult to narrow my picks to just five places, but here goes:

No. 5: Shirokiya

There are a variety of Spam musubi at Shirokiya, but I like the original, plain version ($1.75). There aren’t any thrills — just Spam, rice and nori. But the sauce is flavorful, and even though the Spam is a little tough, it gives the musubi some character.
