Waikiki Spam Jam 2013

Once again, tens of thousands will crowd along Kalakaua Avenue to feast on none other than Hawaii’s favorite luncheon meat. The 11th annual Waikiki Spam Jam happens Saturday, from 4 to 10 p.m., with live entertainment on two stages, and of course, dozens of vendors serving up creative Spam dishes. This year’s free street festival, which has been extended to Lewers St.,  also will benefit the Hawaii Foodbank.

Here’s a look at the Spam dishes on this year’s menu:

MAC 24/7 is new to the Spam Jam, and this is a great venue to introduce their new chef, James Aptakin. He’s putting an exotic twist on his already exotic dishes. —Photo by Melissa Chang
