A Sandwich a Day: Spam Musubi 'Sandwich' at Ate-Oh-Ate in Portland, OR

A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Ate-Oh-Ate is named after chef-owner Ben Dyer's Hawaiian area code. The Musubi roll is a simple combination of Spam, nori, rice, and a piece of thin omelet. It makes for an unusual but tasty seaweed enclosed sandwich (alright, we admit sandwich might be a stretch here), and might even convert Spam haters.

It's also the perfect hangover food, according to chef Ben Bettinger of Portland's Beaker and Flask. The roll comes with crunchy housemade taro chips and pineapple cabbage slaw on the side.
