A tip of the hat to the Buffalo News’ Colin Dabkowski, who Tweeted this:

Foodspotting is a social photography network where people share pictures of restaurant food. It’s useful to help you decide where you want to eat, and what you might be interested in ordering. Indeed, the top “noms” on Foodspotting for Toronto are “Xiao Long Bao” and “Chicken Karaage”. The top “noms” in Buffalo are chicken wings. Apart from a couple of dishes from Seabar, Blue Monk, and Sweetness 7, almost all of the Buffalo bests are wings and pizza. 

If you want to find out more about the use of social media in the local food scene, the Buffalo “Social Media Club” is hosting a panel discussion tonight at Artisan Kitchens & Baths at 200 Amherst Street from 6 – 8:30.  The Whole Hog and Roaming Buffalo food trucks will cater the event, which will feature discussions from:

  • Christa Seychew – Food editor at Buffalo Spree, Producer of Nickel City Chef series, and overall expert on local Buffalo food scene.
  • Donnie Burtless – Creator of BuffaloEats, one of the area’s premier restaurant review websites.
  • Beth Manos Brickey – Creator of Tasty-Yummies, a popular blog featuring mouth-watering recipes and beautiful food photography.
  • Deborah Clark – Owner of Delish Cooking School and Pasty shop, and advocate for social media use.


  • Do Buffalo Foodspotting ratings include half noms?!?!

  • It seems like foodspotting just isn’t a popular thing in Buffalo. The top 3 are all Anchor Bar – that seems more like tourists using the service to show their friends that they hit the popular place for wings in Buffalo.

    I don’t think many locals would be pumped to show off some Anchor Bar wings.

  • ^^ Yep. I don’t know many locals who are actually AB fans. I’ve been there exactly twice — both times before I actually moved to Buffalo.
