Tags:

Santa Ana, Calif.

MUSUBI MADNESS, a never before seen pop-up experience, focuses on exclusive and exciting menu items which highlight the versatility and universal appeal of the iconic brand.

The stars of the show are globally-influenced SPAM® musubis from a build-your-own musubi bar, a SPAM® corn dog and a SPAM® soft serve sundae.

WHAT: Presented by Foodbeast, this first-ever MUSUBI MADNESS pop-up is going down at LONO in Hollywood, California. The event will feature a build-your-own SPAM® musubi bar showcasing unique musubis that take cues from global fare out of Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, the U.S. and Vietnam. In addition to such deliciousness, the pop-up will include chef-driven items like a SPAM® corn dog, a SPAM® soft serve sundae and a SPAM®-themed cocktail. The pop-up will be available only on September 7, 14 and 21.

GLOBALLY-THEMED MUSUBIS AT THE BUILD-YOUR-OWN MUSUBI BAR INCLUDE:

  • U.S. – American Burger Musubi: This recipe replaces a traditional beef burger with SPAM® Classic, but keeps the classic ‘secret’ sauce, grilled onions and American cheese.
  • Mexico – Chile Verde Musubi: Playing a riff off the classic pork chile verde, this musubi recipe fries SPAM® Classic in salsa verde, topped with queso fresco and sits atop Spanish Rice.
  • Philippines – Filipino Lumpia Musubi: This version gets a satisfying crunch from crispy, savory Lumpia egg rolls and accompanied by garlic rice, SPAM® Tocino and sweet chili sauce.
  • Korea – Korean Fried Rice AKA Bokkeumbap Musubi: The highlight of this recipe is the bottom layer which features Korean fried rice, gochujang, kimchi and green onion.
  • Vietnam – Spring Roll Musubi: This musubi takes on flavors from a Vietnamese spring roll including cucumber, pickled carrots, egg roll crisps and nuoc cham, a sweet and vinegary dipping sauce.

SPAM®-BASED DISHES CREATED BY LONO EXECUTIVE CHEF DAVID LESPRON

  • SPAM® Corn Dog: A tasty blend of shrimp and SPAM® Classic are encased in a togarashi-infused corn dog batter and topped with banana ketchup.
  • SPAM® Soft Serve Sundae: This unique, build-your-own dessert is a SPAM®-infused ice cream that can be topped with furikake, teriyaki caramel, rum caramel, vanilla-braised pineapples and candied nuts.
  • SPAM®themed Cocktail: A play on the famous tiki drink includes rum, pineapple, Cara Cara Orange, coconut creme served over crushed ice in a SPAM® can.
