SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - UC San Diego is offering up a variety of new food choices for students as they begin a new school year.

UCSD's Housing Dining and Hospitality service has expanded its menu to better serve students who are dealing with allergies or who want to make healthier diet choices, the university said in a news release.

Dining halls around campus have expanded vegetarian and vegan options, while 64 Degrees, a cafeteria on campus, will offer gluten-free menu items.  

Students will be able to eat breakfast at Ocean View Terrace, which has a Sunday brunch including smoked salmon eggs benedict and kale scrambles. 

The Price Center has added a Mexican courtyard-inspired area, where students can choose from pop-up food vendors like panadería Su Pan Bakery, and Blackbird Beverages, which has coffee and kombucha options. 

Soda and Swine will replace Porter's Pub, which closed its doors in 2015, giving students a place to enjoy a variety of food options including burgers, sandwiches and more than 20 different soda flavors.

More food venues are expected to be built in the future, including an eatery near Price Center Plaza.
