Spamalot!

We have been to Majestic Grille downtown twice now. More recently, we went before going to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the Orpheum as part of the Orpheum’s Spamalot presale events. We like Majestic Grille quite a bit. We will review it soon. I think what is more important to share now, though, is the way that they won our hearts.

After dinner, we headed to the Orpheum for the movie and perhaps a chance at Monty Python prizes. Delightfully, we won the best prizes of all, official Spamalot coconuts! We are now considering abandoning our Prius for our genuine clippity-clop horses. Still, this isn’t the point of this story. Although we are planning experimenting with making horse hoof cake a la Monty Python. Stay tuned.

After we collected our prizes, we started wandering around the gorgeous Orpheum. In the lobby bar, we found a degustation befitting a king. Majestic Grille had provided Spam treats! There were slices of grilled spam with and without pineapple and cherry. There were slices of marble rye topped with slices of spam. This had been drizzled with a white cheese sauce and cut into small rounds. Best of all, there was Spam, Spam, Spam, egg, and Spam on slices of baguette.

Ordinarily, I am not a fan of Spam. I didn’t try the grilled spam. I am sure the charring would have affected the flavor in interesting ways, but I was just coming off a large meal. The rounds of spam and marble rye were the most straightforward presentation, but they were very good. The Spam and boiled egg bites were excellent. Essentially, it was an nice egg salad with a hint of the Spam.

I have gone from not being a fan of Spam to being, well, a fan of Spam. I am now an official member of the Spam Fan Club. Now I have until February to design an appropriate Spam meal for the Squad to eat before we go to Spamalot. This should be interesting.
