I was born and raised in Hawaii. My father and aunty were born in Japan and would often cook for me as a child. I grew up eating musubi, probably more than any other food. From grabbing a tuna onigiri or two for a snack between school and work to eating a Spam musubi from 7-11 in the morning with the aroma of Lion Vanilla Macadamia coffee filling the car as my friend's mom drove us to school, I have many fond memories associated with the foods of my youth.
I created Yokai Musubi to share some of these foods with you and provide Portland with an affordable & delicious alternative to fast food to fuel you throughout your day.
It is my hope that you eat our musubi on your next day trip, family outing or lunch break and create your own fond memories around the food that makes me so happy.
