Detroit pop-up Khana could win ‘The Great Food Truck Race’ this week

If you’re a fan of the Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race,” you can tune in on Sunday to root for a hometown team.

On Sunday’s finale, airing at 8 p.m. on the Food Network, Khana, a Detroit pop-up led by head chef Maryam Khan and offering Pakistani street food, is up against the Easy Vegan food truck for the top prize of $50,000.

For season 16, taking place entirely in Los Angeles, the theme is David vs. Goliath, pitting food truck operators against up-and-coming rookies who have a concept — such as Khan’s Pakistani street food. Khan has been doing metro Detroit pop-ups since 2018 and doesn’t have her own food truck.

But getting to this point was no easy task for the Khana food truck team over the course of the eight-episode season 16 competition, which is hosted by celebrity chef Tyler Florence.

Spoiler alert ahead for those who haven’t watched any of the past episodes.

Tough race to the finale
