On high blood pressure, are there other foods that can cause blood pressure spikes like starches or grains?

In brief: Salt

Salt does cause fluid retention and therefore increases blood pressure.
Very low blood sugar can cause release of adrenaline which raises blood pressure, other than that, I do not know of any interaction with particular foods.
