    You're not a real WNYer if you don't know Fowler's real claim to local fame is.....

    For those of you who are lifelong WNYers, I hope you understand that the three most WNY things are garbage plates, white hots and sponge candy. They literally don’t exist outside of WNY (although you can get Zweigles and Sahlens if you’re lucky enough to live near a Wegmans).

    Beef on weck. I can get it at the local Bills bar in FL but anyone else looks at you like WTF is a beef on weck.

    Good call. There’s a regional chain in this area called Glory Days that has one but it’s not that good. Wegmans has the rolls and you can do the beef yourself.

    But, if you talk about weck, plates, white hots or sponge candy to people who aren’t from WNY, it’s like you’re speaking a different language.

    Another one: salt potatoes.

    I have a college friend who lives nearby here in Baltimore. He worked in Wegmans produce back in HS and college. The Wegmans here stopped selling the bags of salt potatoes so my friend contacted the produce manager. The manager told my friend that he refuses to order them because a) no one knew what they were so they would spoil before they would sell and b) several people complained because they thought the bags of salt were people trying to smuggle drugs in the potatoes.

    I really wish I was kidding. I really wish people were smart enough to know that the granular white stuff in a bag that says “SALT potatoes” is salt. But unfortunately they are not.

    Those of us from North Tonawanda would never buy Fowler’s and if you don’t know why then you suck.

    A garbage plate from Nick Tahou’s. More a Rochester thing but you can get them in Buffalo.
