Do you love street food but prefer to eat at a table?
Hotel Congress launched food trailer, Plaza Eats, on Friday, February 22.
The food trailer, which rests on the well-equipped patio of Hotel Congress, is part of a major renovation in progress for the plaza, which plans to include an amphitheater.
Menu offerings range from Cup Cafe classics such as Picacho Nachos to street food options from around the world.
We ate the entire menu and snapped photos, so take a peek below.
If you love Western cheeseburgers with barbecue sauce, this will be your jam. This gourmet take features a one third-pound chuck patty, cheddar, roasted jalapeño, barbecue sauce, crispy fried onions, and dill pickle on a brioche bun.
The vegan, plant-based Beyond Burger is one of the most beef-like patties on the market right now. Plaza Eats' version showcases the patty with avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion, and dill pickle on a brioche bun.
These crunchy fries come with malt vinegar aioli.
This big ol' price is attached to the priciest dish on the menu, even though it's only $10. This version features traditional cheese curds with a rich smoked house gravy.
This Cup Cafe classic is layered with jack cheese, bean dip, chili con queso, peppers, tomato, onions, and fire-roasted salsa.
This local favorite features grilled corn on skewers dressed with jalapeño aioli, pico de gallo, cotija cheese, and cilantro.
Another Cup Cafe classic, these lettuce wraps feature chickpea fritters with pickled vegetables, smoked cashews, and harissa vinaigrette.
This beast of a burro features carne asada, sour cream, cowboy beans, pico de gallo, asadero cheese, and jack cheese.
Six crunchy, juicy wings (Tamarind Barbecue or AZ Gunslinger Buffalo) come with pickled veggies and your choice of ranch or blue cheese dressing.
Plaza Eats is located at 311 E. Congress St. Operating hours are 9 p.m. - 2 a.m. Thursday, 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit hotelcongress.com.
