Montreal Poutine Experience On Your Own
Get a taste of Montreal’s vibrant culinary culture with a classic poutine experience. A poutine is essentially a plate of French fries served with Quebec cheese curds and brown gravy, topped with meat, poultry, seafood or even vegetables. From its humble origins as a hearty staple, poutine has evolved to become Montreal’s iconic dish, with avant garde interpretations and newer renditions – the dish even has its own week-long festival in the city. If you are looking for the traditional barebones poutine, head to Paul Patates that serves it with a bottle of their famous spruce beer. The Montreal Pool Room is practically an institution for its ‘greasy-spoon’ fare. The city’s fine dining destinations like Le Garde-Manger in Old Montreal are likely to treat you to gourmet versions such as lobster poutine, while Au Pied de Cochon has long been famed for its extravagant duck liver or foie gras poutine. Open 24 hours a day, La Banquise is a favorite destination as much for after-hours celebrity spotting as for its ‘La Reggae,’ a poutine featuring ground beef, guacamole, diced tomatoes and hot peppers. If you are especially particular about your toppings, drop in at any of the Poutineville outlets of this homegrown chain, where you can choose from different kinds of fries, meats, veggies, cheese and gravy to create your very own version of this signature Canadian dish!
