Rice, Rice Baby
Food & Drink / What’s white, pink, black and weighs 286 pounds? According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the world’s biggest musubi. The delectable, ‘ono, edible, oversized snack was created by using a total of 26 cans of Spam, 120 humongous sheets of seaweed and 320 cups of cooked rice.
This Saturday, we celebrate Hawaii’s staple food with its very own festival in celebration of National Rice Month. What’s in store at the third annual Rice Fest is a collection of food trucks, entertainment, artisan vendors and free samples for sure. Celebrity news anchors and chefs, including Grant Kawasaki and Chef Mavro, will participate in a series of cooking demos, and the ever-popular SPAM musubi-eating contest is the culminating event, making this free festival one worth tweeting and eating about.
