Baltimore came out on top in more than one Battle of the Beltways.
Not only did the Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington Nationals but the city bested its rival at A Taste of Two Cities
, a food truck competition held Saturday at the Westport Waterfront. It was organized by food truck owner Damian Bohager
First place went to Baltimore’s Gypsy Queen food truck, followed by the Red Hook Lobster truck of D.C. in second and Baltimore’s Miss Shirley’s truck in third.
A panel of six judges, three from each city, determined the winner. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a big supporter of Baltimore’s food trucks, presented the Mayor’s Cup to Gypsy Queen.
The People’s Choice awards, which were decided by competition visitors via text, went to D.C.’s the Cajunator and Baltimore’s Souper Freak.
