Chocolate wings

An entire food culture in Buffalo has developed around the chicken wing. It was only a matter of time before restaurants and retailers began selling modern twists on this Buffalo classic, from chicken wing soup and pierogi to wing-shaped chocolates and Buffalo-style ramen and toast. Here are some wing sides to accompany your main course on the trail:

CHICKEN WING PIEROGI – Ru’s Pierogi
Deep fried with a chicken wing filling, Ru’s serves its wing pierogi with celery, carrots and blue cheese.

BUFFALO CHICKEN WING SOUP – Danny’s South
Rich, creamy, and brimming with a kick of Frank’s Red Hot, this soup is a perfect way to warm up following a late season Buffalo Bills game at nearby New Era Field.

SCHWABL’S BUFFALO FRIES – Schwabl’s
One of Buffalo’s most renowned spots for beef on weck also serves this head-turning, towering platter of french fries topped with house-made hot sauce, two different types of blue cheese and diced celery.

SHARP CHEDDAR TOAST – Five Points Bakery
Baked on-site along with 10 other types of toast, this cheese-filled variety is served with blue cheese from St. Agur, France and hot sauce.

CHOCOLATE WINGS – Watson’s Chocolates
Satisfy your sweet tooth after stopping on the trail. Watson’s sells boxes of wing-shaped chocolates alongside a blue cheese style container of white chocolate dipping sauce.
