If you follow Questlove and/or Momofuku’s David Chang on Twitter, you know the two have been in a skirmish lately regarding their respective fried chicken recipes. After some recent smack talk, Chang suggested an official contest, and Quest agreed. Last night the two took their fried drumsticks to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” where Tina Fey, John Slattery and Steve Higgins tasted each and picked a winner.
The stakes: If Quest should win, Chang would have to run a spread of Quest in his magazine, Lucky Peach, and sell Quest’s chicken at his restaurant. If Chang should win, Quest would have to do the dishes, wear a cardboard sandwich ad in front of Momofuku and give Chang Twitter shout-outs for a full week.
Watch the drama unfold.
