Poutine is magical for like the first 5 bites. Then it starts feeling like work.

Throw it on the over-rated pile with Lasagna.

Well sir...despite your glorious avatar you are a heathen.

Lasagna is great. Poutine though? Put it back on the boats with the rest of the French and send it home.

You'd never see so many Frenchmen defending the Normandy coast from a sea landing.

See that is the thing, finding a good poutine.

Places think Poutine is simple, but good gravy is key as are good fries, not everywhere can make good fries or gravy.

Good Poutine is good, most poutine isn't.

The poutine at the winter club was delicious but the portion size was lacking. Fortunately, I only get in their occasionally or I could see some lbs going on.

I actually think poutine is best in smaller portions. Much like nachos, it is often piled way too high with the cheese not properly layered. You're left with the first dozen bites delicious and after that it is all just fries (or nacho chips). Without the proper cheese, gravy and toppings sprinkled in amongst the fries, it becomes a chore to finish.

Poutine also is one of those foods that gets progressively less appealing as it gets cold. I can't think of another food that spoils faster than fries. As soon as they turn cold, they become tough and chewy.

Poutine is nowhere near lasagna in any shape or form, but as people said, poutine is best eaten in small servings because after the first 8-10 bites it just turns into a sad cold congealed mess.

Unfortunately everyone seems to think that poutine should be served in trough-sized servings.

I got into Poutine decades ago on a work trip to Montreal before it got more mainstream in the rest of the country. The good stuff we get out here is merely adequate in comparison.

Montreal had some wonderful poutine places. One place (Poutineville had options for how your wanted your potatoes - the smashed and fried potatoes were so good) round here, I think the best way to cap off a nice bike ride or hike in the mountains is a stop at the Poutine 515 (formerly La Belle Patate) in Canmore. The large size is too large though, and when I got home it was not great. I think they put too many cheese curds in and it became like a nasty block of fries encased in cheese.

I sometimes wonder about how many posts I type up and then delete before posting because I think no one wants to read what I just wrote. Is it in the hundreds? thousands?

People always seem to judge poutine based on their worst experience.

My sister did all her Uni at the French faculty at U of A.

The Quebec students that came out found a place on White that made amazing poutine. (this was in the early 90's).


You are correct finding good poutine here is tuff.

Me before travel: (place I’m going to) oh yeah, beautiful city, that’ll be great, so hip and I remember this that and the other.
Me after arriving: Well this is underwhelming.

Good poutine is still average when it comes to quality food.

Cal and Gary’s Cheddar chips are second only to Covered Bridge in the cheddar chip game.
