I liked the poutine I had when in Toronto. Although, can someone tell me.

On the picture it was pulled pork and cheese curds on chips etc. Yet they poured gravy on mine and it looked different?

You probably had to ask for the pulled pork one. Regular poutine is gravy, fries, cheese curds. The pulled pork poutine by my school is amazing though

It was in the Urban Eatery so the picture might've been different because of that. Want to make my own.

Heard about this. Really to bad. As many others in this thread I like Poutine and will miss it if there's a shortage.

I don't think people realize how easy it is to make poutine.

Can you make gravy and melt cheese?

Personally I'm rather surprised it's not big in the States, and can't understand why some people don't seem to get it. At any Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner you put gravy on your mashed potato's so it makes sense to have gravy on your fries, and melted cheese goes good on pretty much anything so... sounds pretty obvious to me.

Now you can melt any kind of cheese on the fries & gravy and call it poutine, unfortunately that's what we mostly get out here in Western Canada, but to have the real authentic Canadian Poutine it has to be cheese curds.

Hence the tragedy when our main cheese curd factory burns down

You don't even need to melt the cheese, the hot gravy and warm fries should do it for you.

The good poutine is at the Square Peg anyway.

Fries with gravy are very common in diners, especially with an open faced meatloaf or roast beef sandwich.
