Chef David Chang—the mastermind behind the NYC Momofuku empire—took to Twitter last night to start up a feud with Questlove—The Roots frontman and Jimmy Fallon's musical sidekick—and his Philly-based fried chicken concept called ?uest Loves Food. Chang, known for his crispy clucker as well, went so far as to bring the challenge to Questo's home court on The Jimmy Fallon Show.
Our buddy Questlove has a strong tweet game himself, and wasn't about to let Chang talk trash without getting some in return. Quest even went so far as to take a jab at the ridiculous Momo policy of requiring a reservation to order their fried chicken.
While this food feud is brand-spanking new, we're betting the jawjacking won't stop here. Questlove's fried chicken ain't no slouch either, as it made Bon Appetit's 25 Things to Eat, Drink, and Cook in 2012. We'll guarantee that Chang and his bird will make an appearance on the set of The Jimmy Fallon Show shortly, since Fallon isn't one to turn down food-related bits.
The only question left is: Are you #TeamChang or #TeamQuesto?
