Hot Krust Panini kitchen is, hands down, my new favorite lunch place. I don’t give five stars very easily, but this place definitely deserves it. When I walked in, I thought that it was so clean, so professional looking, so well run, and the employees so nice and well trained, that it must be a new chain concept that I hadn’t heard of yet here in Orlando. But no, in a pleasant surprise, I found out that it’s a Mom and Pop place. In fact, the owners have been there every time I’ve been in. One of them, Evan, was the subject of my live caricature I did the other day while I was in for lunch. You can see that drawing above. ( Drawn completely on my new Toshiba Encore Write 2, btw, for all of you techies and artists out there ).
Now about the food. All the meats at Hot Krust are fresh and natural ( Hello, “Catch of the Day”! My last visit here, the catch was… SHARK. Delicious!). The sheer variety of sandwiches is amazing. And plus… they have GLUTEN FREE bread available! Wow. Being GF, I haven’t had a sandwich in years outside my home, and made by someone other than myself. You really don’t realize what a treat that is to a GF person.
Give HOT KRUST a try, and tell Evan I sent you! You won’t be sorry!
