I was in Buffalo with a friend last Thursday, and he mentioned that we'd be stopping by a local food truck. That sounded great to my ears. So shortly after The Roaming Buffalo food truck opened for business we made our way to the window.
My friend was all about trying the WTF Burger he'd heard so much about. The WTF boasts a burger dressed with peanut butter and bacon jam. Yes, you read that right: peanut butter and bacon jam. While I remained skeptical, he raved, giving it a 10/10. You can read his WTF Ode here.
While there wasn't as much choice for this mushroom-hating vegetarian, I wasn't at all sad to settle on the BBQ fries with a Lake Effect ice cream chaser. The fries were great, the ice cream too. I was excited to find Lake Effect represented on the truck. It's made in Lockport, and they are always adding new flavours. I had the Salted Caramel. Delicious, as evidenced by the empty container below.
I love that The Roaming Buffalo features local flavours and products. I am a huge fan of food trucks creating interesting menus from fresh and local produce. But I have to admit that there is something to be said for finding all the hometown comfort foods available in one spot. It makes it even better that the view changes with every visit.
