Pensacola always takes a little time to catch up with food trends (the cupcake boom of 2010 can attest to this). However, better late than never, perhaps no gastronomic movement has been so looked forward to in this area as the arrival of the food truck. Unfortunately for downtowners, it’s over by UWF—leave it to the young-ins to get first dibs. Called Bistro Blue, UWF’s food truck blasts jazz from its speakers as it serves up a menu of New Orleans inspired fare. The offerings include light breakfast (like “The Philly Bagel,” a toasted bagel with Philly steak, provolone cheese, sautéed onions and “argo” sauce for $4.50) while the later lunch menu includes items such as jambalaya and bistro style sandwiches (like curry chicken salad on a Farmhouse roll, mozzarella chicken on rosemary focaccia, and the muffaletta on Sicilian bread with olive relish for $7.70). Opened in May, Bistro Blue is a fully contained restaurant on wheels, allowing it to travel to various sides of campus to serve the students in a fun way that meets the school’s needs for portable food service. During the summer it will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and parked between buildings 12 and 18 on campus.
