Help me find this hinge off my kitchen cabinet-

Broken hinge here (imgur).

Looking for an exact match as replacements don't seem to have the same hole pattern. Came from builder grade cabinets in my townhouse.

It's also a 90 degree hinge.

Looked a bunch on google images but was unable to find a match.

Thanks!

The two hinges in that pic don't appear to be the same.

If you can't find a brand name (Blum, Grass and Salice are probably the most common) then it's probably a cheap Chinese no-name hinge that will be near impossible to get an exact copy of. But you should be able to adapt a more common hinge pretty easily, even if the holes don't line up. You know it's a euro-style hinge for a frameless cabinet. I can't tell whether it's half- or full-overlay -- probably full, but you can determine that by looking at the cabinet where they were used. It doesn't matter if the hinges you find are exactly 90 degree, or 93 degree, or 95 degree; just replace both hinges on this one door. Drill new screw holes.

(presumably the reason the two hinges in the photo don't look identical is because one of them is broken.)

My kitchen cabinets came with 3 different brands of hinges that were all roughly the same shape but slightly different appearance - one German, one Korean, and one without a name (presumably Chinese like the cabinets). The only thing that really matters is matching the hole spacing, though you'd probably need to replace both hinges on that door; having top and bottom identical will make sure it swings smoothly.

Going to the cabinet section of Home Depot may or may not help much (I predict their harware/hinges section will be useless), but I bet you could get some good advice at any store that specializes in kitchens. They see a lot of different hinges every day.

Oh, you're right; the break is so clean that I interpreted it as something other than a break.

Looks like it goes on the inside of the cabinet, any special reason it needs to have the same hole pattern?

Just J-B Weld it together and call it a day.
