Not digital spam, the good SPAM. 🙂

There used to be a little breakfast place that was popular with the locals, Eggs and Things (451 Piikoi Street, Honolulu, Hawaii). The last time we were there, they were still at their original location at the edge of Waikiki.

Near the cashier counter there was a little plaque with caricatures of a cow, a pig, and a chicken on the left side. The little animals were pointing to the right. On  the right side there was a caricature of a fish. The message in the middle said “Please eat fish”. Very funny.

A while back there was a kitchen fire and the placed closed for a long time. When they re-opened, they opened closer to the center of Waikiki.

Then the unthinkable happened. They were discovered by tourist. Shudder.

Good for them, not so good for locals. Long lines and higher prices.

We haven’t visited since.

From one small single restaurant, the owners have expanded to three locations.

Got the chance to try their newest location near the mall this week. Prices are still on the high side (in my opinion), but I wasn’t paying. 🙂

A dish that caught my attention. Minced Meat w/ Green Onions and Scrambled Eggs. Choose one of the following: Portuguese Sausage, Ham, Spam, or Bacon. It was a little cheaper than an omelet with the same ingredients.

In my mind, SPAM pairs better with green onions. SPAM it is.



The dish also came with a choice of starch, I usually choose pancakes.

This was also my first time trying the green milder Tabasco sauce. It’s become an instant favorite.



All in all, it was okay, good to try. Will I be back? Not too often (unless someone else is paying). I feel there are “hole in the walls” that I am very satisfied with at a lower cost (I guess I’m more of a “hole in the wall” kind of mouse).  Which is kind of appropriate since mice tend to live in mouse holes (at least in the cartoons). Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
