Spam

Nowhere else in the world is this glutinous meat by-product considered a delicacy. Well, maybe not a delicacy. But Hawaii is by far the largest consumer of Spam. So whether you’re a first-timer or grew up on the stuff (like me!), why not try it in the state that keeps Spam in business.

McDonald’s serves Spam in their breakfast platters along with rice and portuguese sausage.

McDonald’s
2476 Kalakaua Avenue (Corner of Kalakaua & Liliuokalani)
5:30 AM – 12:00 AM (until 12:30 AM on FRI & SAT)

But the more unique way to try Spam would be in musubi form. What is a musubi you ask? Basically a musubi is a block of rice, topped with usually meat, all wrapped in seaweed. You can find spam musubi’s at the following spots:

Iyasume Musubi & Deli
2410 Koa Avenue (behind Hyatt Regency Hotel)
6:00 AM – 4:00 PM

ABC Store
Everywhere in Waikiki
Most open 6:30 AM – 1:30 AM
