The Great Food Truck Scandal

By | Korilla

Popular New York City food truck Korilla was booted off Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race” after being accused of cooking their books to get ahead in the competition.

The episode was set in Memphis and did not allow the food truck operators to use meat in their creations. At the end of the episode, host Tyler Florence announced Korilla was eliminated from the competition because they had added $2,000 of their own money to the cash register. The discrepancy was discovered when sales receipts did not match the cash on hand.

Korilla denied they cheated last night in several tweets. A sample:
