Chicken And Waffles Wins Out Over Dumplings

In the battle between a westside legend and an eastside craze, the crowd went for Roscoe's chicken and waffles over Din Tai Fung's xiao long bao.

As many noted on Facebook, Din Tai Fung for lunch and Roscoe's for dinner would make for a pretty great day. But when it comes to "most iconic," Roscoe's has just been around longer and is better known to Angelenos.

In the next round, Roscoe's chicken and waffles will go up against the winner of The Newbies category: either froyo from Pinkberry or Margherita pizza from Mozza. That match-up is open for voting till Sunday at 11 a.m., so get to it!
