Last night in Tempe, the Arizona Foodist Awards announced their winners among the list of 2015 nominations. Hotel Congress' Cup Cafe was recognized for their popular breakfast dish: cast iron baked eggs.
The dish features two eggs, ham, leeks and gruyere cheese that are baked in cream and herbes fines in a cast iron pan and served with a side of potatoes and toast. The $11 plate is served at Cup Cafe daily from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The cast iron baked eggs were also one of TW's 100 Essential Dishes
this year, and, if you haven't checked those out, you have some reading and subsequent eating to do.
Although Agustin Kitchen, The Coronet, Casino del Sol's Aaron Defeo and Tough Luck Club were all nominated for various awards this year
, Hotel Congress was the only Old Pueblo joint to get a nod in 2015. There's always next year, right?
