Re: “Where The Great Food Truck Race will be parked in Manhattan this weekend

Where's The Lime Truck going to be?  According to the Denver press, they're the best truck in the race.

I saw mention of Devilicious competing in Salt Lake City, but I didn't see mention of them in Denver and concluded they went out in Salt Lake. Some other truck was eliminated in Las Vegas, but I haven't seen mention of who they were.

Who's the "they" who says it's going to be Lime Truck all the way? I hope they're right; I love those guys. It's not like their the first gourmet food truck or even the first good food truck, but they've taken gourmet food trucks to the edge of possible. They once made an exquisite osso bucco that they sold on china plates for $31 per plate. It was better than I've ever had in any sit-down restaurant. They sold out. Maybe that's not the best approach for Manhattan, KS, but they're versatile. If the Food Network gives them the tools to work with they'll make something the locals will love at a good value. Sorry for the promotion; I get carried away.

It seems a shame to take business away from the local restaurants on their busiest weekend. Hopefully there's enough business to go around.

I don't know. One Denver source speculated it was Cafe Con Leche, but I don't know how she would know. We'll be able to figure it out by processor elimination when they roll into Manhattan.

Re: “The Great Food Truck Race is rolling into Manhattan

First, a couple of corrections. Eight trucks started the race and five remain. Las Vegas was the first city, then SLC and Denver.

I want to encourage you to visit two trucks, in particular. The Lime Truck is an Orange County California favorite that won "Best of the Fest" at the 2010 OC Foodie Fest and was named Orange County's No. 1 (New) Restaurant in 2010. Chefs Jason and Jessie source the freshest possible local ingredients and "Iron Chef" a different killer menu day in and day out. The Food Network will make it difficult for them, but you've got to check it out. Also make sure you check out Seabirds. Stephanie makes such amazing vegan food that you'll consider converting, even if you're a die-hard carnivore.

Yes, I am biased. I'm from Orange County and we're all rooting for our trucks this weekend. Biases aside, I promise you some amazing food if you check them out. I know you're going to want to check out the ones I didn't mention, but please spend just a little more money at The Lime Truck and Seabirds. They're great people and amazing food truck entrepreneurs.
