Nobody likes Spam. Well, that’s not entirely true. Hawaiians and Koreans love the stuff. It was brought to Korea by American soldiers, and has left its ugly scar ever since. It wasn’t a great shock then to find a spam gimbap, Korean sushi, at the airport.
The rice roll was filled with vegetables, crab stick and the aforementioned spam. With every bite you would get a different flavor. Like Russian roulette you would risk biting into the spam. Funnily enough when I did reach the spam, I didn’t actually mind. The flavor seemed to be washed out by the other ingredients, or perhaps these Koreans are just on to something.
