Pork Roll In Denver?

So Breakfast On The Edge, in Edgewater, serves pork roll (they call it "Taylor Ham"), and I hadn't seen it on any other menus since I left Jersey. Awesome - I get it every time I'm there. But I'm headed to Taita, a Peruvian restaurant tonight, and while browsing their menu today, I saw "Taylor Ham" on their breakfast menu.

Aside from the fact that I'm intrigued by the idea of a Peruvian restaurant in Denver serving an obscure regional breakfast meat from New Jersey, I'm wondering if anyone else knows of other restaurants serving pork roll on their menus.

      I have never had spam, so I don't know. It's more like bologna, I think. But you wouldn't want to serve it raw!

    2. Masterpiece Deli has Taylor Pork roll... They do a breakfast sandwich with it, and they may sell it by the pound.

        OMG, I could do it at home on my grill!

          Yup - Masterpiece Deli has it. I am originally from NJ and when I saw it on the menu - I was in Heaven (but for $6 or $8). There's a meat place over on 6th (near Fruition and Joy Liquors) and they used to sell Taylor Ham.
          I am in Chicago right now - and we had an easy dinner of Taylor Ham tonight. And you can also order it from the Taylor Ham website - well, Jersey Pork Roll.

        2. I don't know about restaurants, but I just saw this in the king sooper deli...
