And what do you mean, "so far"? It's barely 2 minutes of walk from Lionel-Groulx metro!
It's far from Montreal-Nord

I was in Montreal in the summer. Really disappointed by Smokes poutinerie. I mean, it's a place that specializes in poutine, and it's pretty mediocre imo.

Really liked Schwartz's. The sauce is awesome.

I guess we all have our own favorites, eh.

Welfare Poutine;

frieds, ketchup and melt a few pieces of kraft singles on top... add some black pepper for some kick

This is what PK Subban will be eating with Bergevin's low ball offer

I like Frite Alors fries but not so much about their poutine. It just does't mix well.

Oh and its way overpriced. Especially if you want sausage in it. 12$ for a small poutine.

Well I was hungry before I read this; now, I'm not so sure anymore.

Hey there. I've been trying poutines all over Quebec. (I tried the one at Dunn's last night and the sauce was great but the rest not so much).

Cheese curds is the key ingredient. If you can't find them, use some GoudA (or even smoke Gouda) or a mild-cheddar. Home-fries are always ideal, if not you can buy some at your favorite place (they must be crispy or they'll wet pretty fast). Making your own gravy is the way to go (cook some onions and garlic, add chicken, beef or veal broth, the spices you want, some dijon-mustard and flour).

Pimping your poutine is essential to me. Here are some ingredients I like to add:

- Pulled pork
- Smoked meat
- Hot-dogs (or even Pogos ; cook and slice them afterwards)
- ''A Poutine Expos'' (fried onions, green pepper and mushrooms)
- Chicken
- Duck

You spread the fries in a plate, add cheese and whatever ingredients you like, and you drop the gravy at the last minute.

Especially since the Rib-eye just melts in your mouth. Take it with a Cianti, it's awesome.

A great alternative for cheese curds, in my opinion, is ''St-Guillaume cheese''. Although not as salty, it takes on the same characteristic texture once heated and has a slight ''cheddary'' aftertaste that goes marvelously well with gravy and homemade fries.

Yup, it just melts away a bit more than cheese curds.

Also, IMO, the best poutine in Québec is at Restaurant Labelle, in Lachute.

Back when I used to work at A&W, I used to make a poutine that was:
Fries
Sauce
2x Curds
Bacon
Fried onions
ground beef
Perfect.

Usually what I do when Im craving poutine but too lazy to cook, I just go to McDonalds to buy 2 large french fries (McDonald's dont have poutine in AB) and go to a grocery store to buy a can of poutine gravy sauce and cheese curds. The only problem with this is Its gonna cost you more money.

But yeah, if you're cooking some for friends, you might as well cook.

Very nice place, very classy. Very reliable poutine
For most of my time in Montreal that was my go-to poutine (I lived by the forum), though I always found the Belle Pro on St Laurent to be better. Frite Alors and of course Banquise is better, but when I desperately need poutine I'm usually willing to sacrifice quality.

How I make it.

A lot of fries, a lot of cheese and a lot of gravy. I'm not sure why, but I really enjoy Swiss Chalet's gravy mix in a pack.

Once the fries are cooked to the point they're a little crispy, you throw some on your plate, a little gravy and some cheese. Let it melt, more fries, more cheese and gravy, melt, fries, gravy and cheese. The top won't melt well and the bottom might be a little cold, so I put the plate (yes, the plate) in the oven for about 30 seconds. Gets the cheese melted and the bottom/plate warm.

It's great in the winter time when it's a little cold out. Warms everything up. Throw in a cold pop, or beer and you're good to go.

I also add Janes chicken strips to it. Cut them up and throw them on top, or just wait till the end and use it to clean up the extra cheese and gravy.

So delicious.

The 2 best things Quebec has ever given us are their women and poutine.
