University Heights: A World of Options

University Heights is Buffalo’s college corridor, a strip of restaurants, bars and small shops that cater to the community at the University at Buffalo’s South Campus. And it feels just as eclectic and diverse as the nearby student body. You’ll find Buffalo’s finest Chinese restaurant – Ming Café – near Englewood Avenue. Next door, Sato Ramen is often mobbed by students and locals for its tasty and affordable fare. There’s Indian at Tandoori Hut, the best of New Orleans cuisine at Shango, classic diner fare at Lake Effect Diner, vegan and vegetarian options at Amy’s Place and, perhaps best of all, hot fudge sundaes at one of Buffalo’s historic ice cream parlors, Parkside Candy. It’s almost enough to make you want to go back to school.
