Amorini Panini

Amorini Panini claims to be "The Panini…Done Right." Each panini is individually crafted with the finest meats and cheeses sliced daily, served on hand-made artisan bread and grilled to perfection.  With a brick-and-mortar storefront in Penn Quarter, the shop has expanded to two food trucks as well.  Keith and I recently stopped at the truck for lunch.

The menu features several pressed sandwiches on either sourdough or multigrain bread, as well as soups and salads.  I simply wanted a sandwich so I chose the Penn Quarter Turkey that comes with honey turkey, Swiss cheese, green bell pepper, red onions, tomatoes, and Amorini sauce on sourdough.  The sandwich itself was a nice size and I liked the honey turkey.  The bell peppers and red onions gave a different flavor and became a bit overpowering for my tastes by the time I finished the first half.  The Amorini sauce reminded me of Thousand Island salad dressing.

Keith ordered the Italiano that came with hard salami, pepperoni, provolone cheese, green bell peppers, red onions, oregano, and Amorini sauce.  He chose to add on hot peppers and also got the sourdough bread.  He liked the meats but found the bell peppers and onions to be a bit odd for an Italian sandwich.  The hot peppers were very spicy and lingered in his mouth so much he even mentioned again later on how spicy his sandwich was.

Overall, the pressed sandwiches from Amorini are fresh and a decent option for lunch at about $7 each.
