POLL: Which Team’s Picnic Lunch Would You Pack?

by in Polls, Shows, September 20th, 2012

The Great Food Truck Race
Much like the Truck Stop challenge in the second Food Trucks episode that tasked the teams with embracing regional ingredients, last Sunday’s cooking challenge was a celebration of Nashville’s local cuisine. The remaining four food trucks had just $100 and 60 minutes to prepare a Southern-style picnic lunch for two people who know a thing or two about Tennessee comfort food: country music stars Joey and Rory Feek.

A few teams chose to prepare classic takes on tried-and-true dishes, while others let their culinary points of view shine in creative twists on original recipes. Take another peek at what Momma’s Grizzly Grub, Seoul Sausage, Pop-A-Waffle and Nonna’s Kitchenette served to Joey, Rory and Tyler, then tell us which of their plates you’d pack on a picnic.

Food Served by Momma's Grizzly Grub on The Great Food Truck RaceMomma’s Grizzly Grub offered a plate of Buffalo chicken, cranberry-studded coleslaw and glazed sweet potatoes. “The salty and the tang and a little bit of kick and spice” were Rory’s favorite parts of the ladies’ chicken.

Food Served by Seoul Sausage on The Great Food Truck RaceSeoul Sausage’s lunch was an eclectic mix of international flavors. They served Korean-style empanadas, a creamy potato salad with Korean spices and a fruity pie, all of which Rory said was “really, really good.”

Food Served by Pop-A-Waffle on The Great Food Truck RacePop-A-Waffle’s plate of traditional Southern-fried chicken, roasted vegetables and oil-laced corn on the cob was this week’s winning lunch. Joey said that the guys’ menu “fits really well here in Tennessee.”

Food Served by Nonna's Kitchenette on The Great Food Truck RaceNonna’s Kitchenette put an Italian spin on traditional hamburgers that Rory said “impressed” her. They served the burgers with garlic-scented corn on the cob and macaroni and cheese with bacon.

    I am loving this Season although not seeing the full episodes online and only based on having watched the Recaps…but, I just want to make a one comment about last season because I just saw it this week…I gotta say that Chris Hodgeson of the Hodge Podge Truck was an amazing guy with lovely support. The culinary skills, the connections in each city, the marketing and business savvy the guy was phenomenal and the Lime Truck were an amazing group of guys and Chris Hodgeson couldn't have been beaten an arguably more deserving [FN Great Food Truck Race Food Truck] as the Lime Truck…those guys were like the Geek Squad of Food Trucks…but, I gotta say that if the Lime Truck had not won that Truck Stop Hodge Podge would've had them. Amazing season 2…amazing and very impressive. I would give it 5 Stars. Also was very impressed with the Korilla Truck I like how they, similar to Hodge Podge, were well connected…that really impressed me.
    ok that's the only comment that I have about Season 2.
    But, Season 3 looks like it would be phenomenal also if I could see it.

    Incidently…the lovely support of Hodge Podge truck that I was talking about was his sister and girlfriend.

    Would someone please bring a food truck to Fort Lee, NJ? We all are dying for different lunch options. If you parked in Constitution park during the lunch rush, you'd make a FORTUNE!

    I don't know about you guys but I'd like to put all of these in my moses baskets here in Australia and have a fun picnic with my family. The judges must've made a really difficult decision. All of these look really tasty.

  7. Why pack just one when we can pack all of them? Any decent camper like ours would have enough room to stash them all in anyway.

  8. I'd pack the corn in any of my trips. I could sure use a lot of that.
