its a small place, few seating tables and bench style tables, but great quick bite foods to grab before you head off to the beach or a tour around the island. Reasonably priced pre made bentos and rice balls will various fillings. Spam is the filling of choice in hawaii, but there are also curry, chicken, bacon, and avacado and... More

Went there for musubi before hiking trip. Have many choices to choose from, price is reasonable, and tasted great. Cheap alternative to all the expensive food around area.

Get it to go and take it to the beach. Order an assortment. SPAM sushi is the best, just try it. I promise.

Nothing spectacular but great value and lovely staff. I'd never thought of Spam with rice and bacon but it was surprisingly good and very inexpensive.

This place is cute, fun, cheap and delicious. We wanted to try spam musubi and this place did not disappoint. Very authentic and obviously a favorite to locals of all ethnicities, and Japanese tourists. Loved it!

Small cafe with fast service. Great place for a quick lunch or dinner. We had ahi poke here many times. You get a free miso soup with every order. Amazing fresh taste and big bowls.

Prices for bento's and musubi's are really affordable and delicious. Mentaiko musubi is a winner. There's even a spam and shiso musubi that is delicious. Got to try it.

Spam musubi is the best choice for take out. Since it is so popular, ether you need to show up early or wait in line. Bento box is good too. But remember, all these food are made in advance. So choose what you like. Otherwise is to order and wait for it.

The location on 334 Seaside Ave is a tiny little place with bento boxes, and a wide variety of musubi to chose from. They also sell a variety of SPA (tocino flavored, linguisa flavored, etc.) and even SPAM flavored macadmia nuts. Perfect to pick up something to eat immediately, or to have later in the day. Not fancy, two chairs... More
