Spam Fries

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there was an incredible restaurant named Dolly's in Toronto's Bloordale Village that made fantastic Filipino food. One of the best dishes on their menu was their Spam fries. Up until this moment, we considered Spam little more a Monty Python punch line. Breaded in Chicharrón (fried pork rinds) to add crunch, these delicious chunks of compressed meat (and yes, fat and other "bits") gave us a whole new understanding of Spam's popularity in some Asian cuisines. No longer was this a subject of ridicule. Now we look forward to seeing Spam in the hands of a chef!

Here's a great read: Asian American Chefs Are Embracing Spam. But How Did the Canned Meat Make Its Way Into Their Cultures?

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
