Upstate New York communities, politics, news, events, happenings.
Hot sauce, Boss sauce, Lafrois Sauce
All sauces they serve up at diners and grills in the region.
You can't even buy Lafrois at retail.... its purely food service... and I have tasted it on BBQ beef sandwiches at nearly a dozen diners across Rochester.
Why You Should Absolutely Eat Something Called A 'Garbage Plate'
The rest with pictures here:
I never met anyone that admitted to actually enjoying a garbage plate. I'm convinced it's all pride talk.
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us. ~Henry David Thoreau
Never had one. Probably never will.
What I CAN say is that after being exposed to the show Man v. Food for the first time - Rochester should be ashamed that this is the food they are most proud of. Sure, all the dishes featured on there are a glutton's delight - and surely filled with a full 6 month calorie allotment in one meal - but they are a lot more interesting and presented way better than that pile of garbage.
Crap. Now I'm hungry.
Rochester/Buffalo/Syracuse cuisine, to me, just seems like the shit you get at carnivals.
There was an "Upstate" restaurant (and oyster bar) in the East village that I passed by last week. I didn't see why it would be called "Upstate"
Despite having a map of upstate... and Roc/Buff/Syr/Utica/Alb stuff all over, the menu... predominately seafood? ummm
The selection here has grown quite a bit over the years
