Post Malone takes Jimmy Fallon for his first ever Olive Garden experience, and the late-night host can’t believe such a restaurant exists.
When Post Malone appeared on “The Tonight Show” last week, he was shocked to learn that Fallon had never been to an Olive Garden. The revelation “saddened” the “Rockstar” hitmaker, so he promised to take Fallon to the Times Square Olive Garden after the show.
After arriving in a pink Hummer limo, and promising they weren’t being compensated by the casual dining restaurant, the pair took their seats at a table. Fallon was immediately blown away, not only by the famous free breadsticks but the free wine samples and unlimited salad.
“How do you guys make money here?” the host asked his server.
The “Psycho” rapper then demonstrated how to eat the breadsticks “Post Malone-style,” which involved biting off one end of the breadstick and then cutting off “2 mm” of butter and placing it atop the breadstick.
“The contrast… it’s garlic-y, it’s salty, it’s buttery, it’s hot, and it’s cold!” Fallon said of his first Olive Garden breadstick experience.
Later, Fallon treated Post Malone to a literal “laundry basket of croutons,” and for their entree, the pair ordered chicken parm “extra crispy.” Fallon even managed to snag some free cake when he told the waitress it was Post Malone’s birthday.
Speaking at the New Yorker Festival last Saturday, Fallon said of his Olive Garden outing, “It’s the oddest restaurant I’ve ever been to. I took an escalator through the restaurant. It’s like three floors. I’ve never taken an escalator through any restaurant, I’ve ever been to in my life.”
However, the late-night host admitted that it was “pretty good.”
