True soul food requires some soul, and Carl Redding, chef-owner of Atlantic City’s Reddings Restaurant and the self-proclaimed “Godfather of Soul Food” thinks IHOP’s version of chicken and waffles doesn’t have any, Atlantic City Weekly reports. In protest of the chain’s soulless effort at what he considers his signature dish, he’s setting up a makeshift kitchen in front their May’s Landing outpost today to show them and anyone else looking on how its done and handing out free servings of the dish.
