Any WNY transplants in TC? Missing Buffalo regional food

Abacus | Feb 23, 2007 07:02 AM

Any Western New York transplants in the Twin Cities area that miss the apparently ethnic food we were raised on? I say apparently because until I moved here, I had no idea the Polish/Italian food I was raised on was going to be hard to find or duplicate.

And wings? Where oh where do YOU go? I have ventured over to Buffalo Wild Wings for moments of missing wings back home.....BJ's in Fredonia had the best wings this side of the moon. But, really, the days of 10,cent wings and a pitcher of cold beer are gone, I guess.

And, fish fries - every American Legion, VFW, every church had the biggest and best fish dinners - the huge crispy fish that took up your entire platter - with the works. Do you have a close favorite here?

Periogies - I wish I had paid attention to what my father and I were making when I was a teen but this teenage girl just wasn't paying attention to dad and cooking at that age. I've tried but failed to find anything local that comes close.

Folks, if you are from the Buffalo New York area - and have long wishes for the hot dogs, the wings, the fish, the periogies, the .........where do you shop?

When I go back east, I take a cooler and an extra bag to fill with bottles of Chiavetta's, long sticks of pepperoni and stuff.

I love the TC but I sure miss some of the food from home.....sentimental or am I really missing something?

Thank you.
