Waikiki Spam Jam 2013

Spam it up at the 11th annual celebration of Hawaii’s favorite canned meat


Posted April 23, 2013 by Melissa Chang

Once again, tens of thousands will crowd along Kalakaua Avenue to feast on none other than Hawaii’s favorite luncheon meat. The 11th annual Waikiki Spam Jam happens Saturday, from 4 to 10 p.m., with live entertainment on two stages, and of course, dozens of vendors serving up creative Spam dishes. This year’s free street festival, which has been extended to Lewers St.,  also will benefit the Hawaii Foodbank.

Here’s a look at the Spam dishes on this year’s menu:

    Delicate Blossom:  Is there such a thing as a healthy spam dish?  I thought Alaska was big on SPAM.  OK…how did the unwanted mail and comments end up being called Spam?

    It amazes me how chefs can make spam look like a delicacy – Hard Rock totally sells me with the ice cream.

    The event I hate missing more than Eat the Street is Spam Jam!  Those Spam burgers from Mahaloha Burgers look so good!

    @WERUreo And it’s bigger this year! I tend to gravitate toward Duke’s because I like that mushroom sauce. But it’s all good….
