Forget Truffle Fries, These 7 Luncheon Meat Dishes Will Make You SPAM All Your Money

One of the most versatile yet underrated ingredients today, is the humble luncheon meat. Americans might be more familiar with the name “SPAM“. No, not the junk mail. As in the canned meat.

You can choose to eat the meat as it is, though we wouldn’t recommend it as it’s REALLY salty.

Restaurants have begun serving SPAM as a side dish and we have never been more excited to try each and every one of them because we’re honestly quite done with truffle fries.

So That’s Why It’s Called SPAM

Say bye to truffle fries because these SPAM snacks are the best thing to ever grace the dinner (or lunch) table.

1. SPAM Fries @ Curious Palette

Thick cut strips of fried SPAM served with a side of mayonnaise. It’s a simple dish but so so good.

The mayonnaise helps to cut through the oiliness of the SPAM fries. But let’s be honest, the fries disappear before you even touch the mayonnaise.

It’s a little pricey at $11.90, but it’s so worth it.

5. SPAM Musubi @ Aloha Poké

For those of you who don’t know, Musubi is essentially SPAM sushi. Because sashimi is expensive.

Aloha Poké has managed to create these addictive little musubis, where each slab of SPAM is coated with a caramelised secret sauce and rests upon a bed of sushi rice.

For $11, you get a serving of 6 musubis. Our only gripe? 6 musubis is not enough.

This. This is the ultimate SPAM dish.

Thick cut SPAM fries piled with cheese, black garlic brown butter gravy (we know, right?), sour cream, guacamole, and onions. Honestly, is there anything better?

For just $13.90, you get to relish in this sinful bowl of SPAM. Just looking at this gives us life.

However, do note that SPAM WHAM! is only available at the Orchard Central outlet.
