I've never written to this group, but I'm a devoted lurker. In the Buffalo
area, a famous bar food is wings and weck, which means buffalo wings (most
people have heard of them) and beef-on-weck sandwiches. The bun is called
Kimmelweck, from the German word for caraway seeds, Kummel. The word is
often written Kimmelweck in that area, and I've seen those buns so
advertised in stores there. Incidently, in Ohio there is a chain of
restaurants called BW-3, which stands for Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck, so
we're famous at least indirectly. I have to confess that I've never eaten
the Weck at BW-3, 'cause I really don't care for a salt-and-carraway bun.
