From Food Truck to Restaurant: Asian-BBQ Mashup Goes Brick-and-Mortar

Something Asian, a popular food truck at The City Limits Food Truck Park, is gearing up to take its unique fusion flavors to a new level with a planned brick-and-mortar restaurant. This exciting development promises to offer fans a chance to enjoy their favorite dishes in a comfortable sit-down setting, while potentially boosting the local dining scene.

Led by the collaborative spirit of City Limits owners Donnie Deluna and Melvin Jacob, the proposed restaurant would be situated at 2806 W. Michigan Ave. Currently the Paige Learning Center, the building is slated for an interior transformation to accommodate up to 49 guests, catering to both dine-in and take-out orders.

Since its February 2023 debut at The City Limits Food Truck Park, Something Asian has captivated Pensacola's taste buds with its innovative culinary fusion. Their menu, a delectable marriage of Asian and American barbecue, has quickly garnered a loyal following.

Diners can expect to find a variety of mouthwatering options, including signature barbecue chicken and pork entrees. But Something Asian goes beyond the expected, offering unique twists like Kalua and Korean beef, both sure to tantalize adventurous palates.

The fun doesn't stop there. Something Asian's build-your-own-combo approach allows customers to personalize their dining experience. Choose your preferred protein, rice, sides, and sauces to create a customized feast. Popular sides like hand-rolled lumpia, Hawaiian Macsalad, and cucumber salad promise to complement the savory barbecue flavors perfectly.

As of January 17th, 2024, the project proposal has been submitted to Escambia County and received preliminary review during the Development Review Committee's pre-application meetings on January 31st. The official approval process is underway, and the community eagerly awaits news of its success.

This potential expansion marks a significant step for Something Asian, signifying their commitment to serving the Pensacola community and their desire to share their unique culinary creations in a new and exciting environment. Stay tuned for further updates on this delicious development!
