Egg Spam Musubi


Egg Spam Musubi by Azusa (@azusasasakiho)

Egg spam musubi is well known in Okinawa, Japan, and I discovered it only a few years ago when we visited there. It was at a local street market, freshly made, still warm, and I couldn’t wait to take a bite until we got to the beach as we had planned.

It is perfect not only as a snack but also as a great breakfast, and lunch! And I quite often make it for the gatherings because it’s also kids’ favorite.
