Spam Fries

Updated: Mar 25

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. We are, however, food obsessed. Food is more than fuel; it 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.

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 that we know is not haute cuisine as it is at the food itself.  If we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our wonderful experiences with you.
