On Monday, September 26, the Food Network will air the episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate in which once anonymous now ubiquitous New York Times writer Frank Bruni reveals his crush on the rice bowls at Revel, Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi’s Korean street food-inspired restaurant in Fremont.

The show—the theme this time is "messy," among the selections are dishes from Rye in Brooklyn and a bakery in the Berkshires—begins at 9pm. Andrew Zimmern, Alton Brown, and Duff are also contributing favorite dishes. Wait, Duff. Does that mean Duff McKagan, former Guns N’ Roses bassist and current Seattleite? Or Karen "Duff" Duffy, the MTV VJ whose puffy lips and adorably boyish haircut you may remember if you are between 27 and 40 years of age?

Also, wow. Frank Bruni really, really digs on Seattle food. Remember this love letter? It’s all so flattering.
