Food Trailer “Plaza Eats” Now Open at Hotel Congress (PHOTOS)

Menu offerings range from Cup Cafe classics such as Picacho Nachos to street food options from around the world.

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.
