53-year old rapper Flavor Flav, recently best known for his foray into reality television with the show "Flavor Of Love", has opened a restaurant in Las Vegas called--what else--Flavor Flav's House Of Flavor.
Flav says the restaurant will be take-out only and will serve, among other things, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and something called Red Velvet Waffles, which sounds amazing to this foodie. He claims the chicken is made from his own recipe, which is special enough to differentiate it from other chicken joints.
“Well, first of all it’s the seasonings that I use," he told The Inquisitor. "And second of all, it’s the way that I fry my chicken. If you take Church’s Chicken, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Popeyes’ chicken, you gotta know their secret is the breading that’s around the chicken. If you peel that breading off, you may taste some of the seasonings from the breading, but it’s really like boiled meat. Now, the secret with my chicken is I season my chicken first real good, then I send it to straight to unflavored flour, and I let the seasonings from my chicken season the flour when it’s fried, that way when you bite into my chicken, you get that double flavor explosion … Mine is double good, theirs is singly good.”
Public reaction appears to be pretty good so far; hopefully this will be more successful for Flav than his previous delve into the food business, when he opened a restaurant in Iowa that closed after just 13 weeks due to conflicts with his partner.
On March 15, there is a ribbon cutting ceremony for Flavor Flav's House of Flavor, a new Las Vegas fried chicken restaurant. Yeah, boyeee!
