Bistro Box is a Washington food truck located in Renton, WA. Like virtually all Washington mobile food units, they will be at more than one location in a week. They are at Triton Towers 1 on Mondays; Park Ave. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; Triton Towers 3 on Thursdays; and at Sips Espresso on Sunset Blvd. on Fridays and Saturdays. Barbara Pagarigan is the person heading this food truck.
Continuing my drive through Renton (on my way to Seattle), I found Bistro Box at their Park Avenue location. It was still too early for lunch, but was told I could get a breakfast sandwich instead.
I went with a sandwich of bacon, egg, cheese, and roasted tomatoes on locally baked bread ($4.40). Bacon makes everything better, right?

And yes,there's bacon in there because bacon makes everything better
I then spotted Bistro Box at the Seattle Center Mobile Feast. I just *had* to try the Coconut Chicken Slider ($4 for one), since it's one of their most popular items. It's a chicken breast marinated in green tea, ginger, and lime juice, then battered in a tropical rum batter, breaded with coconut and panko bread crumbs. After frying, it's topped with their house Bistro slaw and sweet chili orange sauce on a Hawaiian brioche bun.

Bistro Box also offers various sliders with Kobe beef patties, as well as an array of paninis (a full one for $7.95 or a half for $4.50).
Now that I've tried both their breakfast and lunch items, I can say this is one of my favorite Seattle food trucks. Find Bistro Box in Renton ASAP and get some sandwiches or sliders! You won't be disappointed! 9/10
