Korilla BBQ Truck Gets Kicked Out!

Unfortunately, not out of Stuyvesant Town.... Amusing story, nevertheless:

From the Gothamist:

In last night's "very strange and heartbreaking" episode of the Food Network's reality TV show The Great Food Truck Race, beloved NYC food truck Korilla BBQ was kicked off the show for allegedly cooking the books, as it were.

At the end of the Memphis-set episode, host Tyler Florence announced that Korilla, who already made it to the top four contestants, would be asked to leave because they added over $2,000 of their own money into their cash drawer. Producers apparently noticed when the sales receipts didn't match up to the final count.

While Midtown Lunch writes that the Korilla guys looked "defeated" but offered no explanation on the show (hmn...could it be...the magic of editing?), Korilla's recent tweets imply that there's more to the story: "1st Amendment Rights went on a hiatus and won't be back till Spring. We <3 you guys and will never forget all the memories! #itaintoveryet" says one, and another reads "WE WOULD NEVER CHEAT ON YOU NEW YORK." A rep from the truck told us "The only thing I can tell you is that I can't talk to you." While we wait six months for their non-disclosure agreement with the Food Network to expire, here's where to go grab a delicious bulgogi taco.


Will Lady Maya still be inviting these losers to make money, no rent paid, in Stuy Town? Think of the children and the bad influence!

We don't need these shitty food trucks at the Oval. There are stores that sell snacks, beverages, hot and cold food, etc., already on the property. They are the businesses on the northside of 14th Street and all along First Avenue up to 20th Street and across 20th Street from First going east. Has Rose forgotten those folks? Has Rose forgotten that those folks pay hefty rent for those premises? Why is Rose allowing these grungy interlopers to poach business from their high rent paying commercial tenants? If those legitimate business close up shop for lack of customers, Rose will lose even more rent. Can you afford to do that, Rose? Does CW Cap know how badly you are mismanaging this property? They are dabbing paint around the hallways, but haven't vacuumed said hallways in months. I'd love to know he logic. Kinda like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
