I love ice cream. I’ll go out of my way to have it. Or make excuses to go out and get some. But sometimes, I'll just see a place while driving by and I'll stop to get some. I've written about my favorite places to get ice cream in DC. Here is a collection of other ice cream parlors I've visited in the past couple of years.
Experience great comfort food and the history of Buffalo in this lovely little pub right next across the street of the Buffalo Zoo, in Delaware Park.
In East Aurora, New York there's a hot new ice cream parlor serving house made ice cream. I journeyed there, about 20 minutes south of Buffalo, to see if it lives up to the hype. It most certainly does.
I love eating at diners. They are not only great places to get comfort food, but also a good way to experience a city's local culture. Over the years, I have been to many diners at many places throughout the US. Here are my favorites.
In Orchard Park New York, just down the street from the stadium of the Buffalo Bills, is a fabulous family style restaurant serving all the local favorites.
If Buffalo is known for one thing (other than snow and the Bills), it is chicken wings. There are many places throughout the city where you can get good wings. Truly great wings, on the other hand, is much harder to find. Hidden away in a Knights of Columbus hall in Kenmore, you will find a place that serves the best.
After several disappointments in the poutine I had been served at various restaurants, I was looking for a restaurant that served the authentic stuff. Allen St. Poutine, on Allen Street in Buffalo, did not disappoint.
Some of the best places to get ice cream are at dairy farms. Hoovers Dairy, located in rural Western New York is one such place.
Clay Handi is a Pakistani restaurant found in downtown Buffalo. It specializes in Clay Pot cooking. A half pot can feed two people, so it is best to go with a group of people and order a variety of pots.
Located in Depew, an eastern suburb of Buffalo, is a classic barbecue joint called Kentucky Greg's Hickory Pit.
