A Greensboro Food Truck took third place in the annual NC Food Truck State Championship in Randleman on June 19.
The city of Randleman sponsors the competition every June as part of a city festival – but was canceled last year due to the coronavirus.
Ghassan’s – the food truck arm of Ghassan’s Fresh Mediterranean Eats Restaurant in Greensboro – won third place with fried cauliflower with tahini sauce, radish salad and a pastrami sub with pastrami from Freirich Foods in Salisbury.
Second place went to Taste Jamaica from Winston-Salem with its jerk chicken plate with cabbage, rice and peas as well as a creative cold salad in raw plantain. Taste Jamaica is owned by native Jamaican Sonia Beckford, who lives in Winston-Salem.
First place went to the Drunken Noodles Food Truck from Durham. Drunken Noodles, which sells authentic Thai food, won with two fiery dishes – “Devil Noodles” and “Crazy Fire Noodles” – with homemade chilli garlic oil.
Winston-Salem Journal’s food editor Michael Hastings was one of the judges for the competition, along with food writers Heidi Billotto, Carl Wilson and John Batchelor; Alexa Modderno, a potter and co-owner of The General Wine and Brew at Seagrove; and Vanessa Beaver Williams, an experienced restaurateur from Randleman.
