Spam & Eggs

Spam and Eggs in Albuquerque

People like to joke about Spam—a canned meat product comprised of chopped pork shoulder, ham, salt, water and a few other ingredients—calling it “meat-flavored Jell-O” or “mystery meat”—but most people who have tried agree that it has a distinctive and delicious flavor.

First popularized during World War II when it made an ideal food for allied troops, Spam has a devoted following of culinary aficionados.

Margaret Thatcher called it a “wartime delicacy.”

And Nikita Khrushchev said that, "Without Spam we wouldn’t have been able to feed our army."

At Albuquerque’s Cocina Azul, we have a Spam and eggs plate that people love, that we could never remove from our menu without major resistance from our customers.

Our Spam and eggs plate comes with two eggs, prepared to your liking; our famous, crispy, golden hash browns and three slices of Spam, fried to perfection and served with toast or a tortilla.

You could also request a side of our owner Frank Sr.’s famous red or green chile sauce and then cover your entire meal with it. We’ve seen many of our customers do this and as they do so they always seem to radiate intelligence. It just seems like a smart thing to do.

If you’re craving some delicious comfort food for breakfast, come in or contact us today, and try our Spam and eggs plate. You won’t regret it.
