Raleigh, N.C. — ICYMI: Pho Nomenal Dumplings is on Food Network’s "The Great Food Truck Race" Season 6. SPOILER ALERT from last night's episode: They are moving on to Santa Fe for next week’s episode. They squeezed by DiSO’s, a food truck out of New York City, by earning just $15 more than them. The cool thing is Chef Dana Marie from DiSO’s is serving on Pho Nomenal Dumpling at this Sunday’s Durham Central Park food truck rodeo (event details later in the post!)
