Los Angeles Is Getting Fried Chicken And Waffle Cones For One Night Only
We've seen fried chicken and waffle cones pop up in the Wisconsin State Fair and in New York, but now Carb & Nation is bringing to Los Angeles their versions of this food mash-up for one night only.We haven't quite decided if this will be a delicious or gross combination, but we definitely are curious. We like chicken and waffles, and waffle cones separately, so hey, why not?
On Sept. 27 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., the food truck and catering company will be whipping up these cones at Tested.LA, a kitchen space located at 3329 Division Street in Glassell Park that allows food purveyors to test out their cuisines. Carb & Nation will be having a residency there on Saturdays.
Chefs and co-owners Fata Wijaya and Kevin Micheli, who were both sous chefs at Church and State, are presenting two different versions of the dish.
There's the American Style one with fried chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, apple coleslaw with a lemon-coriander dressing, fig syrup and goat cheese. There's also the Indonesian Style waffle cone with coconut rice, pickled veggies, Indonesian fried chicken, coconut-kaffir syrup and sambal.
