Guests at the Addison are SO lucky that Shannon creates the menu and that I don’t. There would be a lot more Spam on the menu if I was involved in that particular task. To get my Spam fix I have to go elsewhere.
I have a favorite local sports bar, Halftime, on 8th St, that makes a great Spam sandwich. It is always different and not offered on the menu. Today’s sandwich was grilled Spam, cheese, onions, tomato, lettuce and mayo on a toasted torta roll, fries on the side. Excellent!
Like I said, the Spam sandwich isn’t on the menu. You have to take your own can of Spam. Jon, the Halftime owner, gets half the can of Spam for himself and you get a hand crafted Spam sandwich.
Jon is also offering a tasty Buffalo Shrimp Dip all through Shrimp Festival. Shrimp, 3 cheeses, lump crab meat and Buffalo sauce served with warm pita slices. Very tasty and you don’t need to take your own shrimp!
