The truck stops here in the Food Network inaugural “The Great Food Truck Race.”
For the Sunday (Sept. 19) finale, the final two contenders — the Grill ‘Em All truck and Nom Nom truck — go engine to engine in New York City to sell the most specialty foods and take home the $50,000 prize.
Even though both teams are from Los Angeles, they couldn’t be more different. Let’s break it down:
Grill ‘Em All – They’ve got an edgy rocker vibe, and their logo is inspired by Metallica. They specialize in fancy burgers with catchy names like “Behemoth” and “Molly Hatchet.” Although they’ve been close to elimination three times, they were saved when the Nana Queens experienced unexpected fryer problems and later they won two Truck Stops, which show that they have solid cooking skills.
Nom Nom – Their bright green cheery truck features a super cute “Nomster” nomming on the logo. They serve up Vietnamese banh mi (french bread baguette sandwiches with marinated meat and lightly pickled carrot and daikon) and Viet-style tacos. Their solid business savvy has kept them on top every week — winning them the selling challenge for five weeks in a row — often by teaming up with local businesses for each city they visit.
