Before I went to Hawaii, I did research on “ten foods you should have while visiting the islands.”
Most were listed with restaurant recommendations and sounded rather intriguing,
Then there was musubi. The descriptions said rice (good), teriyaki (ok) Spam (not good) all wrapped in seaweed (seriously?).
And instead of recommending a restaurant that had good musubi, all the sites I saw said you should get it at your local 7/11 … in the sandwich case, wrapped in saran wrap.
Unless I’m starving, I do not eat food wrapped in saran wrap from 7/11. Just not appetizing to me. At. All.
But we went to the local 7/11 and guess what? A whole display of saran-wrapped spam and seaweed!And so we bought a couple. (I told Marti I’d split one with her), and we took them back to the condo.
Guess what? I liked it. I truly, truly liked it.
So if you ever get an opportunity to eat musubi – try it
