Cocina de la Casa

When you eat at Cocina Azul, you’ll enjoy New Mexican recipes that have been passed down through our family for generations. Each recipe is created by Frank Barela, Sr., who has spent much of his life recreating these recipes to serve delicious New Mexican food to guests in Albuquerque, NM.

We take a serious approach to the dining experience. There’s no truck unloading premade food at our Cocina Azul. Everything we create is fresh, and locally sourced whenever possible. You’ll enjoy the scent of sweet waffles and sizzling bacon in the air when you walk through the doors, knowing that the food you eat will be fresh and made to order.

Award-Winning Breakfasts—Best Breakfast in ABQ

So what makes us the best breakfast spot in Albuquerque? We serve authentic New Mexican food alongside American favorites. The next time you stop by our family-owned restaurant, try:

  • $5 Breakfast Burritos—Stop by Cocina Azul before 11 a.m. and you’ll be treated to a $5 burrito!
  • Wa’toffel’s—These are our famous French toast waffles. Two waffles with a French toast flare! We combine the crunchiness of a waffle with the tender egg consistency of French toast served with butter, white powdered sugar and maple syrup.
  • Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs—This American favorite includes 2 eggs, hashbrowns, & ½ pound of the best Angus beef steak, pounded and batter fried to a golden brown and smothered with our award-winning green or red chile.

Our green and red chile is made the right way, without flour or cumin. Frank’s method is to soak the chile pods in spices before blending and straining them. This achieves the proper texture that is a hallmark of authentic New Mexico red and green chile.
