Buffalo, NY

Carrot cake

Buffalo is a great city. Buffalo people seem to be incredibly proud of it and I think with good cause. It has beautiful buildings, it is small enough to be navigable, the people are incredibly friendly and helpful and it is also vegan friendly. We were only there for 2 and a half days but managed to pack in five Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, a tour of the magnificent Art Deco City Hall and a wander around some of the beautiful downtown buildings.

We also ate twice at Merge, a very vegan friendly restaurant, bar and music venue. The first night we stuffed ourselves full with smothered sweet potato fries, buffalo seitan wings, a vegan Caesar salad and a side order of mac cheese. Sadly the light was bad and the photos haven’t turned out. The second night we left room for dessert and had basil gnocchi with roasted vegetables and an eggplant parmigiana followed by carrot cake and peanut butter cheesecake.

Here are the pictures of the second night.

The rest of the time we spent absorbing the fantastic buildings and sneaking in a trip to Niagara Falls. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

    Ah! I’ve been to stunning Niagara but am feeling regret that I’ve never visited Buffalo. One for the wish list.
