If you love Spam and rice like I do, then you will surely enjoy Spam Musubi from Mister Musubi! Spam Musubi is the most popular way Spam is prepared in Hawaii.
History of Spam
Let me give you just a little bit of history on Spam. Spam started in the U.S. in 1937, but it became popular in Hawaii during World War 2. Spam was used to feed the troops when food was scarce. Spam stayed popular in the islands even after the war was over. Statististics show that in 2009, Hawaiians ate more than 6 million cans of Spam a year. That’s how much they love Spam!
What Is Spam Musubi?
Spam Musubi is just like sushi, but it’s different because it uses spam and other tasty treats. Spam Musubi is Japanese rice shaped into a block, topped with marinated Spam slices and wrapped in roasted seaweed (nori).
Spam Musubi Surprise!
An angel knocked on my door yesterday to personally deliver free Spam musubis from Mister Musubi. That angel happens to be my classmate in college (Pinky Calica, now Pinky Calica-Vierra) who, together with his Hawaiian husband (Patrick Vierra), owns Mister Musubi.
(All 6 Spam musubi flavors in bite size. Flavors include Spam A.M., Little Kahuna, Tonkatsu, Kalbi, Teriyaki and Wasabi)
I was having a hard time taking good shots of the Spam musubis that Pinky gave us because my 5-year-old son just couldn’t wait. He simply couldn’t keep his hands off the Spam musubis on our dining table. I wanted to taste a little bit of everything, so we started with MusuBites. I liked that the Spam slices are neither oily nor dry; they’re actually juicy, and that made them more exciting to eat.
Everything was yummy! Justin loves the spam and rice, but he’s leaving all the nori to me. LOL! After tasting everything, I already knew what I liked the most, their Spam Teriyaki!
(Spam + teriyaki sauce+ rice)
I super loved this! The spam slice used here was marinated in Teriyaki sauce. Apparently, this is their bestseller and rightfully so. It’s lightly sweet and tasty! I just couldn’t get enough of this!
(Spam double cut + teriyaki sauce + omelette style egg + furikake sprinkles + sesame seeds + full roasted seaweed wrap)
If you want your Spam Musubi bigger, then this one’s for you. You get two slices of spam, instead of one. I was actually saving this for Justin’s Dad, but the little boy wanted to eat more Spam musubis and he wouldn’t stop until he ate this, so I had no choice but to give it to him. I only had two bites of this Big Kahuna, and Justin ate the rest! He said we have to go to Tita Pinky’s house to get more! LOL!
Verdict: The Spam musubis are delicious and filling, and they’re priced just right.
About Mister Musubi
Pinky Calica and Patrick Vierra lived in Singapore for a few years. Patrick’s Spam Musubi was a great hit with their friends there, so the couple thought it would be a great idea to share their Spam Musubi to a wider audience. That’s how Mister Musubi was conceived. Mister Musubi started business in the Philippines only last year.
According to Pinky, their Spam Musubi is special because “we use the best ingredients, we make our own sauces, we hand-make every musubi individually, and we constantly create new combinations of tastes.”
Aside from Spam, Mister Musubi also makes hotdog, hamburger, Korean beef and even logganisa musubis! Their musubis are perfect for road trips, pot-luck parties, outings, baptisms, weddings, showers, fairs, children’s parties and other events!

Very interesting. I also love Spam with rice and a sunny side up, and these look wonderful. And clever! They would also look nice and clean-looking for school “baon.” Hehe. I wanna try these sometime!
I eat Spam every now and then. Actually, I keep a can or two always in the cupboard for emergencies. Btw, they have a a resto here in Glorietta that offers only Spam-based menu. I wonder if they’re still around.
Oh wow I surely do love those. ^_^
Oooh, they look so yummy! I’m a TOTAL Spam eater, so I’m eager to give this a try. Nothing like this in Cavite, I suppose. :o/
Really awesome how they serve up Spam in new and exciting ways, this is great!
I actually havent tried Spam Musubi! Hehe I rarely order Spam outside kasi I feel na we can cook it easily at home naman 😛
Looks yummy,Mommy Tetcha!Sometimes I make spam musubi as a baon to my kids to bring for lunch at school^_^
wow! I’ve never had this kind of dish before…very interesting…it looks yummy!
ang sarap nito! parang sushi lang, pero SPAM! 😀 magandang alternative ‘to para sa mga ayaw ng raw fish na ginagamit sa sushi ^^
That’s such a good idea… spam marinated in teriyaki sauce. I should try that as the kids can’t get enough of spam 🙂
Ayyy gusto ko ito… pero ang layo ng pick up point sa bahay namin! 🙁
Hopping here from Food Trip Friday, my entry is posted here:
Pan de Amerikana – Marikina
Everything’s all right in the world if you’ve got Spam! 🙂
ang sarap ng Spam! yan ang miss namin dito sa KSA kasi walang SPAM dito e. Pork kasi un di ba? Hay… pagdating ko diyan sa Pinas, kain ako agad niyan 😛
Sounds good, looks good. I have to try it one of these days.:)
Thanks for the feature, Tetcha!
This is a competitor of the spam in glorietta because they sell the same spam but with a different tips.
Oh I love spam, we have spam at least once a week, for lunch or palaman sa tinapay. Will definitely check this out. We’re curious as to how his tastes.:)
First of all, I would like to thank whoever invented spam. You are a genius. If I were stranded in an island and can only eat one food while I am there, that would be spam. I don’t care if I get sooo fat. Who knows if I can still leave that island. Lol.
I love SPAM too! That’s my old time favorite from my childhood. These Mister Musubi dishes looks yum! Perfect for baon for people on the run! 🙂
i love sushi, the food is art (sometimes i just feel like staring at it) and it’s enjoyable to eat. too bad i am from malolos. i am curious how different is it.
you got them for free? lucky you!!! we love spam, so am sure that this will be a big hit with the family! too bad they are located a bit far from us…
thanks for the visit! 🙂
That is just yummy I love japanese food ang looking at it makes my mouth water! Visiting late from FTF:) have a great week!
YUMMY!!! i think i’ve heard of them before, but haven’t tried them yet. would love to, though. too bad they do only pick-ups and their place is a bit far from our place…but am sure they’ll expand soon! …and by then, hopefully, i’d get to taste their yummy creations! 🙂
thank you so much for sharing over at Food Friday, Ms. Tetcha
ps. Congratulations on being chosen as the next Featured in Food Friday player for this week! 🙂
