Tonight the final two teams competed for a grand prize of $50,000 and a food truck. The Great Food Truck Race continued with a three-city competition beginning in Boston. The two remaining teams were Nonna’s Kitchenette and Seoul Sausage.
While on the road, the teams arranged to find a good place in Boston to park their trucks. Seoul Sausage opted to work outside a cupcake spot surrounded by shops, and Nonna’s Kitchenette teamed with a local Boston food truck. With $500 of seed money, the teams rushed to buy their food supplies. Early on, each team had customers lined up to purchase their goodies.
Early in the first day, the truck stop came as in earlier contests. This week the challenge would be to create a lobster dish that locals would love. The locals would also be the judges of this truck stop. The winner of this challenge would receive a really big advantage and being the finale, this truck stop was most important. Surprisingly, neither team was familiar with lobster which made this a difficult challenge. They both kept it simple however with Seoul Sausage creating a lobster roll and Nonna’s Kitchenette a lobster cake. The judges turned out to be two seasoned fisherman and they selected Nonna’s Kitchenette as the winner of this challenge. The prize would be $500 in their till and a three-hour advantage in the next city. Seoul’s Sausage would have to stay behind to shuck clams. Nonetheless, Nonna’s Kitchenette really needed this advantage as Tyler announced Seoul Sausage had done better in Boston than the other team.
After just one day in Boston, teams were sent to Portland, Maine. Again Nonna’s Kitchenette contacted local businesses for help. When arriving in Portland, Seoul Sausage decided to find Nonna’s Kitchenette and park really close to them. The strategy appeared to be working and Nonna’s Kitchenette looked worried.
The following day after setting up in Portland, the teams were told they would be moving again, this time to Lubec, Maine. A really small town, teams were instructed to price each dish under $2. When reaching Lubec, Tyler said the teams were separated by only $5. Thus, Lubec would decide the race.
The two teams stood as Tyler counted the money in their cash boxes. Finally after seven weeks of competition, the winner of $50,000 and a brand new food truck was Seoul Sausage. They won this competition by just $103!
