What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten on a piece of sushi? If you’re fairly new to the experience, you might answer something like “octopus” or “fish eggs”. However, if you’re more accustomed to the exotic tastes of Japan’s favorite food, it probably takes a bit more to surprise you. It may take something as bizarre as SPAM sushi to make you look twice.
Indeed, SPAM has made its way into the sushi world. This started out in Hawaii, where this luncheon meat has enjoyed a strong popularity since World War II. It’s made its way as far as Sushi Ko, an upscale sushi restaurant in New York. It is served up in nigiri form, and occasionally within a sushi roll. You won’t find anything quite this strange at our Japanese restaurant in Seattle, but come down to enjoy all of your classic traditional and American-style favorites today!
