You Can Now Get Bougie SPAM Musubis Wrapped In Edible Gold
Gold-topped desserts have been pretty popular this past year, with gold-covered ice cream, apples, and chocolate all going viral. One SF food truck is getting in on the golden food trend with their own take: A $100 Gold SPAM® Musubi.
Created by the 808 Poke Shack for SPAM Restaurant Month, this fancy SPAM musubi has flecks of gold on both the inside and outside. The sushi rice is mixed with honey, rice vinegar, and gold furikake flakes, joining a caramelized slab of SPAM that’s marinated in a miso teriyaki sauce for 24 hours.
The two are then wrapped together with both nori sheets and edible gold leaf to give the musubi a unique sheen.
This is a more pricey musubi than ones you can normally buy, as one of these gold-wrapped eats will set you back $100. But hey, when else can you say that you’ve eaten a golden SPAM® musubi?
808 Poke Truck will have the $100 musubi available for the entire month of August as part of SPAM® Restaurant Month, where several other unique SPAM®-centric items will be debuting at restaurants across the nation.
