Dine in Plancha in Four Seasons Orlando from Monday, Aug. 20 through Saturday, Aug. 25 and enjoy a fabulous special of the El Cubano sandwich & choice of side for only $9 in honor of National Cuban Sandwich Day!  Regular price is $18 so that is an awesome deal.  Plancha is my favorite spot at Four Seasons Orlando for lunch.  The food and drinks there are really good!

  • $5 mojitos (can be made virgin as well) on National Cuban Sandwich Day, Thursday, Aug. 23.
  • Happy Hour half off drinks from 3-6pm every Mon-Fri.

I highly recommend the following appetizers to go along with your El Cubano sandwich:

Tuna Tartare – avocado, ginger coconut vinaigrette, red onions, micro greens, jalapeño, tostones

Guacamole – Roasted corn relish, naan chips, Parmesan cheese
