Sunday in My City-Buffalo Foods


My city is Buffalo, New York, though I live outside the city in the rural suburbs....it's what most people think when you tell them you live in Western New York. This last week talking to several people from around these parts about food and how popular and known Buffalo is for these foods. Most I have never had or heard of before moving here.

First of coarse is the ever famous Buffalo Wings. People are crazy for their wings here, it's wings this and wings that. Gotta order pizza and wings. I personally have had Wings once here. They were good not earth moving omg good. Pretty much my hubby ruined Wings for me, how you ask? By giving me the calorie count per wing.....somewhere in the 200's including the sauce and dips than you need to add the sip of beer to wash it down, and who really has one wing.

Next is Beef on Weck......roast beef piled high on a Weck roll....I ordered one once also! The meat was piled so high and was so fatty....well lets just say I'm not a fan. But people love them here!

One of my favorites is Chicken Finger Sandwich....it's spicy, cheesy and one of the reasons I'm currently not losing any weight!

Looks harmless right.....I won't even research the calorie count on that one....gotta have a few vises!

This little gem I never had or heard of until moving here. I say you either love it or hate it.....well I love it of coarse. It's Sponge Candy . My favorite is from Fowlers Fine Chocolate's Buffalo's best!
It's molasses flavored candy hard tasting at first than melts in your mouth....it's not for everyone but it means more for me!


There are so many brands of food found here that when people come home they stock up on. With Buffalo being a melting pot of cultures the cuisine reflects just that.

All those photos of food made me hungry. I'm going to try to forget how bad wings are for me though.

We lived in Rochester for a few years while my husband was in seminary. They had wings there, too. The goal was to see whose wings had the most tender meat and one of the local establishments claimed to have the MOST tender wings in town. Their slogan? "You don't need no teeth to eat my meat." And that's all I have to say about that. :)

Deidra's comment is hilarious! I would like the candy too . Never been big on wings or the beef on Weck - Anchorage has great food choices & the world's best seafood!

My favorite local easygoing restaurant here is Bradley House.

I've had good wings and some not so great - I've never actually craved them. Love beef on a bun (though not when it's fatty). Never tried a chicken finger sandwich but it sounds interesting! I've always loved sponge candy even as a kid - we used to buy it in packages, not covered in chocolate though - just plain. I was surprised that it was also a big thing in Ireland! :)
