I had the chance to try the Killer Samich Food Truck at Caffe Nove some time back and it was a truly great food experience. I have to admit when I first thought of a sandwich food truck, I wasn’t too interested because I wasn’t sure how the flavors could be twisted enough to warrant $6-$10. It was not until I checked out the Facebook fan page of this food truck and saw this amazing looking sandwich on their cover photo that I began salivating for a taste of the Killer Samich food truck.
The actual truck design is very simple and to the point. I think having some more photos on the food truck would be helpful though for diners. Killer Samich is one of the earlier food trucks to hit the streets and has been out on the road since Fall 2011. After quite a long internal debate on which sandwich to order (the Killer Cuban was highly enticing) – I decided to try the Pork Carnitas Sandwich from the cover photo I had seen before.
The Pork Carnitas comes with Cilantro Lime Slaw, Sweet-n-Spicy Pickles & Citrus Mayo. After one bite into this sandwich I was completely sold on Killer Samich. The interesting blend of flavors was like no sandwich I have had in Tampa Bay. The hoagie roll bread was perfectly toasted and every last bite was enjoyable. The slow-roasted pork was incredibly succulent to the point where I was just chomping away happily. No Subway, Publix, or even local deli shop could compare to this awesome sandwich and Tampa deserves to know that this is a top local sandwich. The tortilla chips that came with the sandwich were also great and made it more of a meal.
This beautiful sandwich enlightened me on the Killer Samich food truck.
Most food trucks spend their time in South Tampa or Downtown, I think it’s awesome that Caffe Nove brought Killer Samich out for a day to the New Tampa and USF area. Definitely check out Killer Samich if you have a chance, you won’t regret trying one of their sandwiches. Next time I want to try their Killer Cuban which was recently introduced on the menu. We Tampa residents love our Cubans!
