We've been seeing photos of a certain Tocino SPAM spreading all around the net. And we've been dying to try it ever since. But we never do see it in supermarkets near us. It's one of life's greatest mysteries. Like a breakfast unicorn!
Finally, Richie's friend Chef Ian of Sebastian's posted on Facebook that he was able to buy some SPAM Tocino. And Richie was able to turn up his charms and was able to get the information from Chef Ian on where he found the SPAM Tocino. So off to Robinsons Supermarket in Eastwood we go!
And there it was, on the canned meat isle, sitting pretty, with only a few cans left! Can you spot then in the picture?:)
It's P105 pesos per can. A bit more expensive than the normal SPAM. Richie told me to buy 5 cans. But I went all out and bought 6. Haha! Seeing the almost empty section of the SPAM Tocino, I felt the need to add at least one more!
So here they are sitting pretty in our kitchen cabinet!
So needless to say, we had it for breakfast the next day. Richie likes his SPAM in thin crispy slices. I, on the other hand, like it thick! We just fried them normally like how we do with normal SPAM.
Was it good? Yes. Richie loved it because it's sweet (of course since it's Tocino), I liked it too! It's hard to have just a few slices. But I just wish there was still some saltiness left in the SPAM, which is what I love about SPAM in the first place. But it was still good nonetheless.
I'll give you a tip: There's also some in SM Aura Supermarket!;)
