Cue the Monty Python Spamalot YouTube clips. It’s all about the Spam at American Sardine Bar when Scott Schroeder’s sandwich shrine pays its respects to precooked canned meat product.
A collaboration between Schroeder, photographer Neal Santos and food writer Drew Lazor, the very special evening (which is also Santos’ birthday) will feature a delicious spiced lineup of Spam-tastic snacks.
Starting at 6 p.m. until the Spam runs out, the kitchen will turn out Spam Pandesal sliders on sweet Filipino rolls with mango and papaya slaw; Spam fried rice lumpia (fried rice formed into spring rolls and deep fried to a crisp); Spam corn dog; Spam tacos; Spam mac n’ cheese; and the list goes on.
Even more potential excitement for Spam lovers: the company has sent along extra flavors that are rare or unavailable in Philadelphia, such as Hot & Spicy, Bacon, Jalapeno and Teriyaki, each of which will be making an appearance in the specialty dishes.
The one-night-only menu will be served à la carte and will last as long as the supplies do.
