Chorizo con Huevos at Bun ‘N Burger (Alhambra, CA)


One of our favorite places to eat breakfast when we’re visiting relatives in the San Gabriel Valley is Bun ‘N’ Burger. The current owners bought the diner from the original one and kept all the old memorabilia on the walls and suspended from the ceiling—old pictures from WWII, plastic parrots on perches, old Coke and Sunkist signs, a giant swordfish, etc., and more pictures of The King (including one on velvet) short of a shrine, all worthy of Route 66 joints.

My favorite thing that I order from the menu—actually the only thing—is their chorizo and eggs (☆☆☆☆), generous amount of chorizo sausage scrambled with eggs. What I love about it is, aside from the excellent chorizo, the eggs and meat are nicely blended, almost fluffy, rather than pebbly like at some restaurants. When slathered with their killer salsa that’s served on every table, you have a meal fit for a real king. There are several other Mexican (and American) breakfast options, including specials of the day written on a blackboard, but I’ve never tried ANY of them, so enamored am I of my ‘usual.’
