The Great Food Truck Race Recap: Meatballs Vs. Sausage In The Finale

September 30, 2012 09:21 PM by Lori Wilson

The final two teams pulled into Boston for the third season finale of The Great Food Truck Race. However, Boston was not the last city they’d drive to before a winner was named. In a twist on The Food Network reality show, Nonna’s Kitchenette and Seoul Sausage competed in three different cities before a winner drove away with their very own food truck.

Boston, Massachusetts
Seoul Sausage parked on Newbury Street after partnering with a cupcake company. They pulled up to a long line of people ready for some of their signature balls. Meanwhile, Nonna’s sold their fried raviolis in Copley Square after partnering with their own local connection.

Truck Stop
Tyler called the teams to challenge them with creating a New England style lobster dish. They received three live lobsters in an attempt to impress the locals. Neither team really knew what to do for a dish, but Seoul Sausage decided to poach the lobster, put it on a roll and top it with an apple coleslaw. Nonna’s created lobster cakes. Local fisherman came by to judge the dishes, but Tyler hadn’t called with the results by the end of the day, which rattled the teams.

The next day, Tyler finally called and instructed the teams to meet him at the harbor for the Truck Stop results. Before revealing the winner, Tyler told them they were now headed to Portland, Maine. He then brought out one of the fishermen who judged the lobster dishes. For Seoul Sausage, the fisherman wished the slaw was put on the side and that they used more claw meat. For Nonna’s, he called their cake tasty, but hard to eat. He gave the win to Nonna’s, who needed it because Seoul Sausage was in the lead at that point. Nonna’ s received $500 in their cashbox and were allowed to leave for Portland immediately, while Seoul Sausage had to shuck 6 bushels of clams before they could start driving, setting them back about three hours.

Portland, Maine
Once in their new destination, Nonna’s parked in a spot reserved for them by a local business in a bar district. They made their meatball sandwiches, lobster cakes and fried raviolis. Once done with the clams, Seoul Sausage sped out to Portland and parked near Nonna’s. Seoul Sausage did their best to make up for lost time.

The next day, Nonna’s went to the waterfront. Seoul Sausage followed suit, annoying Nonna’s in the process. After finding success in Portland, Tyler called the teams to inform them they were on the move again….to Lubec, Maine with a population of just 1600 people. He gave them a heads up to park on Water Street and instructed that their menu items couldn’t be priced more than $2.00.

Lubec, Maine
Both teams pulled up to find a crowd waiting for them. At that point, the teams were separated by only $5.00. After non stop sales, Tyler called the teams to shut them down. He directed them to a lighthouse for a final sales count and to deem the winner of season three of
The Great Food Truck Race.

Final Elimination
Once at the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, Seoul Sausage and Nonna’s met Tyler to learn their fates. Tyler counted the cashboxes and announced that with a total of $6,673 Seoul Sausage was the winner. Nonna’s lost by just $103. Seoul Sausage won $50,000 and their very own food truck.
