I've been getting lots of tweets this afternoon from fans of Nonna's Kitchenette, a food truck from New Jersey, saying that they're in town tonight for the finals of the Food Network's Great Food Truck Race.
First, rumors that they were headed for Commercial Street. Now, there's confirmation via Twitterati foodies that they are on Fore Street, nearly ready to begin serving. Apparently this is the first all-female finalist team competing on the show. Nonna's serves Italian food - think grandma's meatballs and tomato sauce.
Their competition? Seoul Sausage, which Gritty McDuff's confirms will be parked outside their business for tonight only. Seoul Sausage is a truck from LA that serves Korean BBQ.
Get down to the Old Port and sample their eats!Tweet
