The Great Food Truck Race - Finale 2013
So, Tyler and the folk at Food Network surprised us in the second-to-last episode of the Great Food Truck Race. It's now a two-part finale with a "surprise elimination" along the way. That is, at least for this year, a really nice twist, as any one of these teams deserves to win, though my favorites in order are: Aloha Plate, TikkaTaco, Philly's Finest Sambonis. The Philly boys are actually lucky to still be in it, and if they'd gone out over the inability to sell the Ditka sausages, it would't haven been terrible. This episode featured a great cameo appearance from Chicago mayor Rahm Emmanual, and the Chicago-style pizza challenge was a treat. Personally, I think $1000 bucks for the till was a bit much - but the Hawaiian boys closed that advantage pretty quickly. On to Maryland.
