When I was researching my trip to Hawaii, I came across a curious thing. Apparently McDonald’s does a breakfast meal specific to the region, which comprises of Spam, eggs and rice.

I’ve certainly heard of Spam, which is canned cooked pork, but I had never tried it before. It is extremely popular in Hawaii, hence it being on the golden arches menu as a standard item.

My Spam Breakfast Meal

My flight arrived into Honolulu at 9:30pm and I didn’t get to the Hotel Renew until around 11pm. That meant bed around midnight and my plan was to hit McDonald’s first thing in the morning.

Happily I woke up well in time for it and walked down to the branch across from Waikiki beach. It was hopping at that time of the morning, so I got into the queue, ordered my food and took it back to the hotel.

I’m a sucker for McDonald’s hash browns as part of any breakfast meal I purchase from there, hence why I bought two. However, first things first, time to try the Spam, eggs and rice.

Turns out Spam tastes quite salty and it is actually really very nice. I was pleasantly surprised by it and hoovered up everything on my plate. Well worth it!

Overall Thoughts

When you next go to Hawaii, you really should try the Spam, eggs and rice for your McDonald’s breakfast meal. Not only is it something truly only available locally, it’s a tasty way to start the day as well.

Have you ever tried this at McDonald’s in the Aloha state? What do you think of it? Have you come across any other regional variations to a McDonald’s menu anywhere in the world that I should try? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
