If you're a fan of The Food Network, you've likely seen an episode of Beat Bobby Flay. It's the show that brings two chefs from across the country to compete against each other, with the winner going on to compete against celebrity chef Bobby Flay.

Hint: Flay almost always wins.

But Flay met his match when he went against Seattle's Shota Nakajima. Nakajima is the owner of Adana in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood and made a 2017 appearance as a contestant on the Food Network's Iron Chef Gauntlet.

The chef who goes against Flay gets to pick what kind of food the two prepare for judges on a blind taste test. Nakajima chose tempura, which was a power play since he attended culinary school in Japan and worked under a Michelin Star rated chef before opening his restaurant in Capitol Hill. It was quite obvious Flay didn't have a chance.

The chef showdown aired May 11.

Adana hosted an event that night to show the episode and to also serve food inspired by the episode. Nakajima also gained recognition as a James Beard Award finalist as the Rising Star Chef of the Year.

Thanks for everyone coming out last night to share the win! #filletedflay #SlayedFlay #ForTheWin #BeatBobbyFlay #FoodNetwork
