Hangry Michelle on Diners Drive-Ins & Dives!!
Take a Trip to Flavortown
Hey Hangry Hombres, guess what?!? I'm going to be on an episode of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives with the one and only Guy Fieri on Friday, December 18 @ 10pm EST! Guy brought his killer flannel and frosted tips to Toki Underground and chatted with Hangry District about dumplings, ramen and his hatred for eggs. I hope you tune in!
Guy called me up before the shoot and asked what we should wear so that we would match. I'm kidding. We ate the veggie dumplings and ramen, while schooling Guy on slurping.
My great friend and General Manager for Toki, Neil Dundee, hung out with me during the shoot. And also calmed my nerves with some 10am sake. Chef Erik Bruner-Yang was slinging noodles for Guy and I was lucky enough to share some ramen with him after the shoot. I think we all know he's the real celeb here.
Guy was as ridiculous as you'd imagine with a tiny bit more of a potty mouth. I enjoyed his company and he seemed to be shocked that I knew how to talk about food. He signed autographs and genuinely loved the ramen (who wouldn't?). It was a really awesome moment and I loved watching the Food Network crew work. They were all so nice, and happy to chat with me about their many seasons with the show. I'm so glad that the DC community loves Toki Underground as much as I do, and can only imagine how even more insane it will be to get a seat after the show airs.
It wouldn't be Diners Drive-Ins and Dives without the FLVRTWN car, right?! Saw this puppy out front and knew exactly what I was getting myself into - haha. I loved every second.
