The other day I went to my favorite Obon Festival at the Venice Hongwangju Buddhist Temple in Mar Vista on Centinela and Braddock. I grew up just a couple blocks away and have been attending the festival since I was young. The highlight of the menu this year was the Hawaiian staple, Spam sushi. I talked my friend into getting it so I could photograph it for my faithful readers. I did not taste it - maybe I will work up the nerve next year. Lamb's tongues: YES, Spam sushi: NO.
