“The Great Food Truck Race” is coming to San Francisco and the public is welcome to stop by and eat.
The popular Food Network series began recording all six of its upcoming season’s episodes in the seaside town this week. This is the first time that the entire reality season has been in one city.
“This is an ideal location for this program,” said Joe D’Alessandro, president and CEO of San Francisco Travel, in a statement. “San Francisco is one of the best culinary cities in the world. Food trucks are already part of our culture, with a loyal following on the latest mobile cuisine. “
The series, launched in 2010, has food truck teams competing with each other to make the best dishes and raise the most money in a series of challenges. The winner takes home $ 50,000.
The program is hosted by celebrity chef and restaurant Tyler Florence who owns the Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco and lives with his family in Mill Valley.
All food trucks competing in San Francisco are winners of previous contests:
– Chalk Truck @thelimetruck
– Seoul sausage @seoulsosis
– Aloha Plate @alohaplate
– Waffle Love @wafflelovesocal
– Middle party @themiddlefeast
– NOLA Creations @ nolacreations504
– Mystikka Masala @mystikkamasalafoodtruck.
The public is invited to go out and do their own taste test. You can track the location of the trucks, as well as the opening dates, by following each truck on social media.
According to San Francisco Travel, the show’s producers are working with city health officials to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.
