Yeah Robot 2000 used to be a lot better. Is it still Montreal Station Hot Dog or did it get bought by La Belle? It's still passable casse-croute type fare though. At least it was the last time I tried it.

Anyone have good poutine recommendations in Vaudreuil?

Poutine is the ultimate experimental DIY food.

After reading through the topic, I was hankerin' for some arteries cloggin'. So I went and bought myself a bag of Riviera fresh from the production line at the Chalifoux dairy.

Then I cut myself some fries and cooked them.

For the sauce, I had a can of chipotle-flavored chicken sauce here. Not your usual poutine sauce, but figured, it's a sauce, it's somewhat spicy, cool experiment. Heated it up and thickened it then built my poutine in a deep dish by row. Sauce-Fries-Cheese-Sauce-Fries-Cheese-Sauce.

It was okay. Left me wanting for an Ogusta's, but it was decent homemade one.

Yeah its still Montreal Station HD. Other than having a beer tap, i don'T see why you'd eat there. Roulotte right across the street destroys it, and the Belle P on St-Charles is pretty good.

In Vaudreuil Patate et Persil has some nice variety. Last time i went i had the poutine with pulled porc and white wine gravy sauce...it was good!!

If i remember correctly they have at least 10 different poutines to try.

I know this is poutine sacrilege, but I prefer shredded cheese to curds...I like my cheese melted over unmelted...always.

Is it a sit-down place or do they do takeout? I usually pick up some fast food when I visit my mom out there but I'm getting bored of the usual places I go to.

My biggest poutine guilty pleasure was a poutine they served at the Dorval arena when my brother played hockey there. It was McCain's frozen fries, crinkle cut (!) with shredded cheese (!!). A horrible bastardization of true poutine but I loved it.

Its both. Just make your order and ask for a carry out kit.

You'd be surprised to know how many restaurants let you take out. I've recently found out Baton Rouge lets you take out. Call in advance, order, drive there, pay and leave!

Going to have a poutine today. One of the little restaurants you find in buildings that host tons of companies/warehouses. It's decent for the $6 price tag.

Agreed. Actually, when I go on vacation, poutine is about the only thing I miss from here.

That's really on the easy end of the difficulty spectrum in terms of making cheese.

The unfortunate part is that you do all that work and they say they only squeak for about a day.

I was hoping to make a big batch and store them...

Curds will lose their squeakiness after 2-3 days at most. They're done once they lose their moisture I find.


Also, think I'm going to make myself a ******* poutine tonight. Don't feel like cooking much...

Worst. Poutine. Ever. It's like they don't even try anymore, just thinking about what I've been served last time I went there is making me feel sick.

Pure ****, same thing at the Colisée Pepsi, where the poutine smell is way too strong but somehow it's not even hot.

I'd rather buy my poutine at a nice restaurant instead of some fast foods, now. This way I can at least expect a quality meal.

Agreed but now I feel like trying out a couple of the mentioned places to compare them to my personal favorite (Alfa as previously stated). That could add a couple of inches to my waistline...

Mozzarella would be good if it was a bit tastier. It's kinda bland.

As I dropped in the Gorges thread (lol?) anyone in the Halifax area with a hard-on for poutine HAS to check out Cheese Curds in Dartmouth (just found out they've opened up a second location to deal with the volume at the Pleasant St. location). Simply the best.

Ashton is probably one of the worst poutines I've ever had. even the burger was freakin awful. i remember paying something like $12 for a small poutine, small coke and awful burger. at paulo & suzanne for the same price you get a refill coke, amazing burger and a large poutine that is respectable.

Do they put enough cheese/gravy? Cause so far I haven't had a good poutine in the Maritimes yet.
