'Mom's Spaghetti', which takes its name from a popular meme derived from a line in Eminem's 2002 hit 'Lose Yourself', served up spaghetti and meatballs and meatball sub sandwiches to music lovers in California.

The food was served in a Chinese take-out box branded with a heart tattoo that read "Mom" with a fork stuck through it. Prices started from $9 (R110).

Eminem - whose real name is Marshall Mathers - tweeted: "@COACHELLA STANS - CATCH US ACROSS FROM THE DO LAB STAGE #MOMSPAGHETTI + #STAN MERCH [sic]"
