It is very similar. Special roll, kimmelwyck I have been told is german in origin. It's sort of like a kaiser roll but it has large salt crystals and
rye seed on top. The Western New York area has many very ethnic foods and traditions.
It seems that when many ethnic groups came to America they left New York City and didn't get much farther than the Buffalo area. Poles, Germans,
Irish, English, French, almost any group you can think of.
Needless to say, with our winters and the many ethnic heritages here, we all eat pretty good, all kinds of good food. And of course chicken wings
originated here at a place called the Anchor bar on main street. I have had wings all over the country, but none as good as here.
If you ever get the opportunity to come to this area you will be amazed at all the different foods avalible here.
