Well sure, but then there becomes the question of when do you start drawing the line in terms of what's a poutine and what isn't. And why anyone would want to waste so much effort drawing lines like that when, at the end of the day...it's just food

My stand on this is simple. If it contains fries cheese and gravy, it's a poutine. That doesnt make it an authentic poutine, but it's definitely a poutine.

To use the words of The Russian General, you've got the original one and then you've got its variants. The original will always be the best way to do it but it doesnt stop the variants from being delicious poutines all the same.

It obviously isn't poutine, I'd accept zucchinis if they were fried but being that they aren't, way too healthy to call it a poutine.

Im going to chime in here.

I've been to almost all the various poutine joints you can imagine in quebec. I can EASILY say the best poutine comes from the Bellepros at the corner and St-Laurent/Prince Arthur. Perfect serving size, fries are ALWAYS piping hot, High quality cheese kurds and authentic gravy. I love the fact that its the only poutine that has that perfect overall texture in every bite.

It's poutine week. Anybody tried something exotic?

I had a steak poutine at Station des Sports on Ste-Catherine the other day. Kidney's are still battling the excessice amount of salt ingested.

Been there once. I took a spicy poutine (if I remember correctly, there were chicken wings on top of it). Liked it. Up to you to create something nice with all the possibilities. You can have a poutine filled with pieces of pogos if that's your thing...

Be careful with poutine week guys! Your digestive organs might form a union and ask for more rights.

When you're drunk at 3am its definitely better than MADO PIZZA.

Just made poutine but with real curds! Friends brought me Costco gouda curds from Montreal a week ago. Even though they're not fresh anymore, it beats the crap out of the cheap curds we get in Fredericton. If only I had real fries...

So couple weeks ago I tried Decarie Hot Dog poutine, not a huge fan of the gravy they use, but it was still pretty good.

Also tried La Roulotte in the West Island last week, this one is probably the best poutine I've been able to find in the West Island. Thanks to TheCanasianfrasian who had suggested it

forgot to mention that I tried maamm bolduc on (i believe) canasianfrasian's advice. Solid poutine, but I was hoping for more.

Maybe my standards are just unrealistic.

I just moved to Charlottetown recently and the food is amazing! I've never been to a town that has been extremely consistent with great food/service at most restaruants.

This place just opened near me, http://www.peipizza.com/#!food/c1jo3

Will always recommend, their poutine is great, and everything is local. The BBQ poutine is next, pulled pork and pulled beef! I was talking to the owner and the guy swings by one of the million farms on the way to work, picks up his daily needs, gets in, smokes it for 7 hours and voila.

http://www.tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant...rd_Island.html
is another good spot, they have gluten free options and it doesn't taste like crap.

I'm going to be huuuuuge.

I made something similar last night. Fries, sauce, cheese curds (obviously), caramelized onions and a fried egg on top Was incredible

YES.

I think you're the first one who agrees with me.

Where was this one?
