Of course there's Benny's for the sauce but the fries are McCain style, so it's not as good as it could be... The REAL best one for me is Alpha's in Longueuil, not any alpha the one on chemin chambly. Better than la Banquise, Poutineville, etc. Better than every poutine I tasted around Quebec too.

Cheese is squeaky, fries are soft but not too greasy, sauce is great. Simple ? Doesn't seem so for a lot of places...

The fries also make the difference in the poutine. Do you guys like the thick fries or the regular ones? I honestly prefer the regular ones (Mcdonalds) much better.

I forgot to say Torino is amazing.

Another poutine I forgot to mention is from this restaurant called Jukebox.

They use pretty standard gravy and curds, but they also use small curly fries for the fries. I'm not sure if they're homemade, doubtful. But the mix creates an exceptional poutine. These are small curly fries, not the big ones, so they get smooshed down by the weight of the cheese and gravy and it's really awesome.

Pretty sure they're talking about Halifax style donairs. It's a spicy meat topped with a sweet white sauce.It's a variation of a gyro, but they're unattainable in Montreal unfortunately. They're Incredible.

If you guys are looking for real doner, go to the Village Grec, there's one on Jean-Talon, and one in Laval. Best doner in the city.

I prefer matchstick fries with mine (thinner than McDonald's).

SERIOUSLY?

I'm asking cause i always get my pizza from Piroz but i simply never bothered with their poutines and other non-pizza stuff. You're telling me their poutine is actually good? Like, REALLY?

Your preference is your own but Québec poutine is made with thick cut twice-cooked brown fries. Julienne yellow french fries are an abomination to everything that is sacred about poutine. It's actually my only pet peeve with poutine. I dont care what you put on top of it or how fancy you make it look so long as there's fries/gravies/curds but for some reason i cant stand yellow fries in poutines.

Thats really up to each individual perception of food. To you its "just" food, but to some people food is a lifestyle. Considering that poutine is Québec's most well-known dish, it's only normal that some people would be a bit emotional about it. Especially here on a forum populated mostly by Montrealers.

Yeah but it's so particular. You just said it's only the fries that make the difference. Other people have said it has to be the right cheese, and others have said it's the gravy that matters most. Some said it has to be those 3 ingredients only, others have said to put whatever else you want on it. What's the point of being so picky if there doesn't even appear to be an agreed-upon consensus as to what a "real poutine" is?

But there is a consensus (although something like an "appellation d'origine controllée" would help): fresh cheese curds, hot brown gravy and thick cut brown fries. That's the proto-typical poutine. It's the dish's nature as fast food that's seen it be so bastardized. Pizzerias have no interest on wasting time and ressources on making home-made thick brown fries so they throw McCain fries in there and call it a poutine. Then someone comes along and prefers those fries to the regular stuff and there's the origin of the percieved lack of consensus.

Well, let's make it simple: there's the Original AKA The Real One and then, there's variants.

There's great variants. I love the Poutine Dejeuner at Poutine Centrale or the Texas Poutine at Mange Moi.
