I appreciate good food. I like montreal authentic joints like schwartz's, romados etc.. but Banquise which often does get included in this list is a scam.
I think Romados burnt down a few weeks ago. I was pretty sad when I heard.

There was a fire but the building didn't burn down. Reparations are still going on but the place will reopen soon-ish IIRC.

I have never seen that kind of poutine in my life. I hope you realize that Ottawa is right across the river from quebec.

I really need to try that Decarie poutine everyone is talking about but it's kind of far (15 kms away). Is it really worth the time/gas?

The sauce is really different. Won't be like many poutines you've had before, but it's definitely worth a try, and IMO, a good poutine. That place was dangerous when I was still at Vanier.

Just take the metro to cote vertu. No biggy.

Truth is I like their regular fries with salt'n'vig. no cheese or gravy. they have the best fries in the city imo, there sauce is a bit more hit or miss depending on preference. Not much kick to it, has more of a gelatin like taste.

Went to Poutineville a few time.

You can get your poutine à-la-carte. It's pretty awesome. You select amongst several type of fries, cheese and sauce plus any extras you can imagine. I had one with brisket and goat cheese. My brother-in-law had one with pogo slices! There are so many options that some of the potential results are aguably not poutine at all but it's all delicious.

I'm not a huge fan of La Banquise, but... a scam? How is a restaurant a scam? Lol

They hire illegals in the kitchen and they import the curd cheese from china...

But seriously that poutine always gets mentioned as ''a must have''. Anyways, I think people get sucked into the selection offering and the fact they are open late.

I'm sure anyone of us can make a better poutine then they could but how many of us can make a better smoked meat than schwartz's, bla bla etc... kapeesh?

Anyone who lives in Cartierville/Ahuntsic should try Paulo et Suzanne's. Definately my favorite poutine, they're also open 24/7.

Common, you need to go out of Mtl if you want a really good poutine. I try alot of suppose really good poutine in Mtl and all of them was just so-so. No fresh, french frie cook in old oil so you have dark french frie. The sauce it's very different so it depend of the taste of each person.

I like Banquise, and if I'm going to recommend a poutine place to someone from out of town it'll probably be it. It's in a good location near downtown/in the plateau, I wouldn't really want to be sending people to Cote Vertu just to get their poutine lessons.

Fair point that you can make a better poutine than them, but I think that's an argument against fast food in general.

What's the green crap, Guacamole? GROSS!

With that being said, using salsa as poutine sauce can be interesting, i've done it once.
