Food Truck Fun
A few months ago, The Great Food Truck Race rolled into Austin for a weekend of filming around the Capital City. In addition to a stint at Star Bar, the Rattle Inn and Ranch 616, the Food Network show also taps into our hot dating culture. You can see the results when the episode airs Sunday night.
According to a teaser for the "Dinner Dates, Austin Style" episode, competing teams were paired up and sent to a local Match.com event where they fed "the hungriest singles in Austin." The teams, whose partnership skills were being tested during the challenge, were then forced to switch trucks and sell another team's food.
Hosted by Tyler Florence, the show pits eight teams of "food truck hopefuls" against each other in culinary competitions across the country. This season's road trip stretches from Southern California to the beaches of Key West, Florida.
Austin is the third stop on the seven-city trek. The new episode airs Sunday, August 31 at 8 pm on Food Network. More details about the show can be found here.
