    If you eat it straight out of the can. If you can cook it a bit, it taste better.

    But you are spot on, the level of sodium chloride is off the charts. Not good if you have high blood pressure. Still, I do know quite a few people who see spam as their...guilty pleasure.

    Something else I want to eat right now. Its related to the Peking Duck, but instead of crispy slices of the duck in pancake and sauce, its duck chopped into small pieces in a lettuce wrap. Yum, anyone tried it here?

    Most of the time you get both. They slice the duck, return it to the kitchen, then serve the minced version with lettuce wrap. Available at many restaurants. Considering how empty hotels are these days the risk of infection in a hotel restaurant with 4 out of 20 tables occupied is slimmer than heading to a crowded supermarket.

    Are you going to bet on that? What about the trip to the restaurant? What about the staff you come in contact? The table and chairs? The utensils...have they been cleaned properly? I thought so...

    I highly doubt that. Stop lying. I have a family to take care. Grow-up, please.

    Need to seriously escalate this, but supplies are limited and am not going to go trolling around super markets for exotic cheeses etc (not that they're available due to import / logistics issues and if they're probably overpriced!)

    @huja - any suggestions?

    Unfortunately all we have in stock - some "govt cheese" blocks from Australia.
