A Greensboro food truck took third place June 19 at the annual N.C. Food Truck State Championship in Randleman.

The town of Randleman sponsors the competition as part of a town festival each each June — but canceled last year because of the coronavirus.

Ghassan's — the food-truck arm of Ghassan's Fresh Mediterranean Eats restaurant in Greensboro — won third place with fried cauliflower with tahini sauce, radish salad and a pastrami sub using pastrami made by Freirich Foods in Salisbury.

Taste Jamaica out of Winston-Salem took second place with its jerk chicken plate with cabbage, rice and peas, as well as a creative cold salad wrapped in a raw plantain. Taste Jamaica is owned by Jamaican native Sonia Beckford, who lives in Winston-Salem.

First place went to Drunken Noodles food truck, based in Durham. Drunken Noodles, which sells authentic Thai food, won with two fiery dishes - "devil" noodles and "crazy fire" noodles" — incorporating its homemade chile garlic oil.

Winston-Salem Journal food editor Michael Hastings was one of the judges of the competition, along with food writers Heidi Billotto, Carl Wilson and John Batchelor; Alexa Modderno, a  potter and co-owner of The General Wine and Brew in Seagrove; and Vanessa Beaver Williams, a Randleman native and veteran restaurateur.
