Watch Sakaya Kitchen on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Tonight

When Guy Fieri visited Miami to film Sakaya Kitchen for his Food Network sensation Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, we were sure he'd have a great time. What we didn't know was how much he'd fall for Richard Hales' cuisine -- and the chef's sweet ride.

Fieri wound up dubbing Hales the "Ninja of Flavortown" (one of our favorite nicknames ever) before he left Miami with hours of footage -- and a 1964 Cadillac (after purchasing Hales' classic car). Hales was even invited to Fieri's birthday party in California (because every mayor needs his ninja to share special celebrations).

Tonight, you can watch the ninja of Flavortown throw it down all stealth-style on DDD.

In Guy Fieri-speak, Richard Hales and crew delivered "the bomb-dot-com Brussels sprouts" and went "all out ducky on the sous-vide sammie." Hales was pleased with the episode, telling Short Order that "the whole process has been great," even adding that Guy texted him the night before with encouraging words.

The episode, titled "Keepin' It Real,' airs today, March 3, at 11 p.m. on Food Network, and again Tuesday, March 4, at 2 a.m., and Wednesday, March 12, at 6 p.m.
