Want to eat a fried chicken and waffle cone in LA this weekend? Yeah you do.

Krystle Klein

Because God is mighty and powerful and created both fried chicken and waffle cone, He has decreed that this weekend thou shalt eat said cone stuffed with said fried chicken in Los Angeles for the first time ever. Don't be smote. Here's what's up with them:

Carb & Nation

1. They'll be served for one night only in LA

That night is this Saturday (THIS. SATURDAY.), and the place is Tested.LA, a Test Kitchen-esque pop-up space in Glassell Park.

2. They're different than the NY version

Your NY friends are probably gonna be all like, "I got fried chicken and waffle cones before you neener-neener-neener", but you can be all like, "yeah, but these dudes from Carb & Nation in LA PERFECTED THEM, so super neener-neener-neener!!!"

3. There are two versions: American and Indonesian

The American version's a cone stuffed w/ fried chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, apple coleslaw with lemon-coriander dressing, fig syrup, and goat cheese fondue; the Indonesian guy's got fried chicken (same!), coconut rice, pickled vegetables, coconut-kaffir syrup, and homemade sambal chili paste.

4. There are no reservations, and it's first come, first served

And they're serving until they run out. And they're opening at 5pm.

But it also... may. So, you know, take your chances if you want. Just don't say we didn't warn you.
