Today I made it to the Taste of Buffalo for the first time in my life thanks to my daughter. She’s working in Buffalo now and living close by and thanks to her invitation I actually ventured into the big city to taste some of the hundreds of different items there were to sample from Buffalo and Rochester area restaurants. It is the largest two-day festival of its kind in the United States. Fifteen dollars got me twenty tickets which in turn allowed me to sample a number of items. The more memorable tastes were “deep dish garlic bread” from Jack Astors, “Caprese skewer” from Cecelia’s Ristorante “Pork Slider” from Dinosaur Barbecue and a chocolate covered banana from Landies Candies. I completed my visit with a chocolate chip cookie which was delicious too.
There were thousands of people there today thanks to wonderful sunny skies. I think I’ll return next year and I’ll be happy to recommend the Taste of Buffalo to my friends. I’m glad our daughter lives in the Buffalo area and recommended the festival.
