at Vinh Loi Tofu.
Having been vegetarian for a while and “off island” even longer sometimes I find myself yearning for the familiar flavors of Hawaii. So when I saw this “Seaweed Roll” on the counter at Vinh Loi amongst the other impulse items I had high hopes. It looked a lot like Hawaiian food you find in convenience stores and delis. My guess (or should I say hope) was that it was going to taste like the queen mother of all Hawaiian heat lamp food: The Spam Musubi.
So I took it home and warmed it up in the toaster oven to create the full effect. And… Pay off. Move over Spam Sub the Seaweed Roll is my new favorite food at Vinh Loi Tofu.
I don’t know how it would hold up against a real Spam Musubi to a meat eater. But for me it has brought me back to the time I had my first at pre-Don Quixote Daiei. (This reference may be too inside or mainlanders.)
