The Memphis episode of Food Network’s “Big Food Truck Tip” aired Wednesday night and viewers found out which of the three featured food trucks received a $10,000 surprise in the tip jar.
It was Soi No. 9, a popular truck owned by Tim and Mae Vimmonimit, who serve Thai food. Basil chicken and khao soi, a chicken curry served over crisp noodles, beat out the Southern fried chicken taco at El Mero Taco and the Soft Shell Crab BLT at Stanley's Sweet Treat Sweets.
But it wasn't an easy decision, as host Andrew Zimmern said more than once during the show.
"This is the hardest decision I've had to make on this show," he said. "I think it really speaks to the quality of the food truck food in Memphis."
