    Beef on Weck
    It is Buffalo’s second-most-famous foodstuff behind the chicken wings that take the city’s name: thin-sliced rare roast beef on a kummelweck roll, with horseradish and a pickle served on the side. “One of the great sandwiches in America,” R. W. Apple Jr. of The New York Times declared in 1998.

    The roll is of paramount importance. A kummelweck is essentially the same kaiser roll you’ll find in delis across the nation, but at its best fluffier and always covered in a heavy coating of both pretzel salt and caraway seeds that encourages the consumption of beer.

    Connoisseurs of the beef on weck seek out those sandwich shops that dip the cut side of the roll in beef juices before assembly, or those that serve the sandwich with a dish of au jus on the side. Buffalo residents, meanwhile, can often be identified by the copious amount of horseradish they pile on top of the meat.


    my god this sounds great.
