Just when we thought Pumpkin Spice Spam® was wild enough, the meat brand is now going even further with a MUSUBI MADNESS pop-up. Launching in partnership with food blog Foodbeast, the restaurant experience is arriving in Los Angeles, California for a limited time.
A custom Spam® menu created by Hollywood restaurant Lono‘s Executive Chef, David Lespron, is going to be served. This includes a corn dog created with a blend of shrimp and Spam® Classic encased in a togarashi-infused batter and topped with banana ketchup. To wash down your corn dog, the menu features a Spam®-themed tiki cocktail with rum, pineapple, Cara Cara Orange and coconut cream served over crushed ice in Spam®’s recognizable rectangular cans. For dessert, there will be a Spam® Soft Serve Sundae made with Spam®-infused ice cream. You can choose your own toppings, including furikake, teriyaki caramel, rum caramel, vanilla-braised pineapples and candied nuts.
Along with the custom menu, there will be a build-your-own musubi bar featuring a range of food from different cultures. Five dishes will be featured including a Vietnamese Spring Roll Musubi with cucumber, pickled carrots, egg roll crisps and a sweet and vinegary nuoc cham dipping sauce, Korean Fried Rice Musubi with gochujang, kimchi and green onion and Filipino Lumpia Musubi with egg rolls, garlic rice, SPAM® Tocino and sweet chili sauce. If you’re looking for something with more of a kick, the menu features a Mexican Chile Verde Musubi with Spanish rice topped with fried SPAM® Classic in salsa verde and queso fresco. For a classic twist, an American Burger Musubi will be served with SPAM® Classic instead of a beef patty, “secret sauce,” grilled onions and cheese.
The MUSUBI MADNESS pop-up restaurant will be open in LA’s Hollywood district on September 7, 14 and 21. The event is free, but because seating will be limited, you will need to get a ticket in advance on Foodbeast’s website.
