Trending: Spam Fries in Manila
Saltier and meatier than your regular potato variety
(SPOT.ph) We don't know when our love affair with Spam started, but we do know when Spam Fries entered our gastronomic consciousness. It was in February 2015—when we went down a rabbit hole called The Bunny Baker Cafe and Cake Studio; their panko-crusted Spam Fries (P235) nearly stealing the show from their sweet fondant masterpieces.
The Bunny Baker may or may not have been the first to slice this revered tinned meat into batons and serve them as fries, but they were definitely the ones who got the ball rolling—locally.
Since then, more and more restaurants have created their own version. Pablo's Pub and Restaurant in Bonifacio Global City is one of them. Their Spam Fries (P240), which are coated in a beer batter, serve as bar bites for their drinks. They can even be ordered with beer.
Teddy's Bigger Better Burgers
Reserve Ortigas and Teddy's Bigger Better Burgers go for a more straightforward approach. Taking their cue from Instagram favorite Manila Social Club in New York, Reserve and Teddy's both serve their Spam Fries in the can and with a battalion of sauces.
Teddy's, which is at Greenbelt 3, mixes theirs with actual potato fries and serves them with spiced ketchup, honey mustard, and sriracha aioli. It fetches P268. On the other hand, Reserve at City Golf Plaza serves up a crispy and tasty classic priced at P395.
