I read reviews about Iyasume and one day decided to hunt out this place.
It's a small place on Makaloa Street across of Walmart. Look for street parking because parking in front of the shop is tight and difficult to back out onto the street.
We have tried different musubis and every one was great! I liked their bentos, too.

You won't be disappointed--really!

First few trips there in 2011 were fantastic. Great mounds of rice molded with hot, just grilled pieces of spam wrapped with strips of nori. Each bite would release steam from the spam masubi.

Then this last visit a week ago, was super excited to be back and ordered a Plum Spam Masubi and a Bacon and Egg Spam masubi. What a let down, the amount of rice was about 70% of what it was a year ago, and it was only lukewarm. On top of that the spam was COLD, like almost as if it was pulled out of the refridgerator cold. The plum masubi didn't have very much plum flavor and the bacon and egg on the Bacon and Egg masubi was also cold. Hope it was just a fluke, cause I used to love that place.

Their Musubi is quite awesome. The price is very reasonable and the food are tasty. There is no parking and across the street are tour bus parking. Don't leave the car there on the sidewalk.
