Watch the David Chang vs. Questlove Fried-Chicken Showdown on Jimmy Fallon

Last night on Late Night, David Chang and Questlove went face to face (drumstick to drumstick?) in their much-hyped fried-chicken showdown. And the stakes were high: Chang's loss would reward Quest a spread in the next issue of Lucky Peach and the serving of the winning chicken at his New York Momofuku joints; Questlove, upon losing, would wash dishes, don a cardboard lunch ad in front of Momofuku, and give shout-outs to Chang on Twitter for a week. Jimmy Fallon's celebrity guests, Tina Fey and Mad Men's Roger Sterling John Slattery, had the plumb luck of judging their chicken. "It's like old-school shake-and-bake a little bit," commented Fey mid-chew. Spoiler alert: It was a unanimous decision for Chang. As a gesture of goodwill, Chang will still put Quest's chicken on his menu and donate all proceeds to the Food Bank of New York City. Watch it all go down, straight ahead.
