No matter what time of year it is, eating poutine always seem a great idea.
In a nutshell, poutine is a Canadian delicacy enjoyed by Canadians (and even some Americans) coast to coast. Believed to have been invented in rural Quebec in the 1950s, it’s made up of French fries, topped with cheese curds and piles of gravy. No doubt when you get to places like Ottawa, Montreal and deep into Quebec, you’ll find some of the best poutine in the country. In fact, along with the classic poutine mentioned above, many snack bars and restaurants are taking it further, some even creating up to 30 different varieties of poutine adding steak, sausage, jalapeño, olives and even bacon.
Same story in Toronto. There are dozens of hotspots making so many variations of poutine, it’s tough to keep up. But as far as I’m concerned, these 3 spots make some of the best in town. I share them with you here – in video form – it’s 1 minute long.
Watch, salivate, crave and satisfy, y’all.
