As we were pulling together our annual WAVE Awards issue we couldn’t help but notice that the owner of one of our multiple award-winning eateries is getting some national attention.

Pom Moongauklang of the delectable Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria in Orlando’s Milk District is going to appear on the Food Network series Guy’s Grocery Games starring Guy Fieri.

Quick side note: Is there any sandwich out there better than Pom Pom’s Mama Ling Ling’s Thanksgiving sandwich? If you answered anything but hell no then you haven’t tasted one yet and you need to go get one now!

Guy’s Grocery Games is a cooking-themed game show hosted by the Flavortown mayor himself Guy Fieri as he pits four chefs against each other in a three-round elimination contest. The episode Pom will appear on, appropriately enough, is titled “Sandwich Showdown.”

According to FoodNetwork.com’s episode synopsis: “Guy Fieri has invited four top sandwich makers to Flavortown to see who can deliver under the pressure,” promising a “surprise ending that will go down as a first in GGG history!”

Pom, along with the other three sandwich specialists, will be judged by Flavortown’s own board of experts including Zane Caplansky, Rocco DiSpirito, Damaris Phillips and Guy Fieri himself.

The episode airs on the Food Network Sunday March 11 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
