Oahu’s Triple D – Iyasume Musubi Express
If you have a rental car in Oahu, it’s very likely you will be going on long rides. That day we planned to go to Ko Olina beach and it’s about an hour ride out of the city. So we needed to pack some quick goodies. When you have 2 babies with you, it wasn’t an option to pack a romantic picnic basket. We found Iyasume Musubi next to the King’s Court in Waikiki.
Iyasume also served bento boxes but we got only musubi. Mainly spam musubi as Patch looooooves spam. Spam is something that I eww at but somehow I admit I cannot just take one bite whenever I eat something with spam (ie. instant noodles with spam in Hong Kong, spam musubis, etc). I don’t buy cans of spam at home though. It’s like eating a can of msg, really.
Why is this place so popular since you can buy spam musubis anywhere. I was told by a local that Iyasume uses high quality rice for the rice balls and musubis.
It is cheap too and big. It’s the size of my fist and costs around $1.88 – $2.50. There are also combos including miso and salad.
