Poutine is dieing in QC! We need some life support here. Better quality cheese, better quality fries, and especially better quality sauce. Some places their poutine is so bad it's inexcusable.

My friend TRUST ME, YOU have to come to montreal, Ville-Emard and make a stop at Dillalo Burger ( on Allard Street ).They got the best Poutine in the world, and probably also the best Burgers. Iv heard that there are some otehr franchise witch are average, but this restaurent really kick arse.

Anyone tried the Poutine au Foie gras at le Pied de Cochon(something like that)? Me and my gf will take a crack at it next week, so I'm looking for reviews from real Poutine lovers.

As for this thread, I can't believe that Route 66 in Vanier has been mentioned. It is very good and I like it a lot. I am not sure that a lot of people know about this place. Poutine piquante at Ashton sure kicks some serious ass too.

To all Montrealers: do not order a poutine in a place called Corvette or Korvette. Near Jarry and Cristophe-Colomb: worst sauce in the history of mankind. And what's up with some of you guys grabbing a Poutine at ANY La belle Province? Awful.

In a hurry, try McDonald's. All incredients are extremely cheap, but it has this McDonald's "Man this stuff is deep fried scrappings off the floor of the slaughter house...but it's good!" value. Definitively has its charm.

Small, just there fries, good cheese if you like your poutines with molten cheeze instead of cruds, and a McDo-like sauce. One serving clogs all.

Haha I know this place.I was residing near Cristo and Jarry a couple of years ago and I had the sadly magnificent privilege to order one of their poutines,this thing deserved at best 1/10,for the effort.:I was sick for the most part in school.Not a experience you reedit.

Belle Province is decent at times,but when you taste it you can easily feel it's not a personal great poutine experience.It's not that bad,but the quality should be definitely improved.


What's with the talk of La Banquise?I've never heard of this highly recommended poutine institution and it seems somehow prestigious,as their poutine standards are considerably of higher quality.

My homer suggestion: Déli-Plus on Papineau and Villeray.Poutine of solid quality,homemade,just great.If you want to eat there,do it you'll be quite satisfied.

Hey man don't diss the *quick* fixer-upper. It's not high quality, but like someone said, the further you go away from downtown, the better (for lack of a better term) it gets.

IFthere is one thing good about the Belle Pro poutine, it's the cheese, for the squeaky-tender lovers.

Their poutines are good, not the best, yet a much higher grade than the BelleP, but it's the choice that makes it so great. If you're tired of the restricted choice of either plain-old and Italian, that's the place you wanna go. OVer 12 sorts of poutine to chose from. And the sizes are pretty decent. It's north of Park Lafontaine if ever you are lookin for it. It's pretty unique and the people there are quite friendly.

You want real poutine... you got to go to Drummondville...where it was invented (or stolen, if you believe Victoriavillers)!

Jean-Paul Roy and the Roy Jucep in Dr'ville : http://www.jucep.com/inventeur/index.html

There's also Mr. Poutine with buckets of poutine (I think it changed its name)!

You cannot get palatable poutine in the States, for the most part.

Or at least I've yet to find any place worth a damn...

It's good, but not great sorry.

I remember in high school in McMasterville there was a La Belle Province with the best fries that I've ever tasted. Their poutines were also great, although sometimes they were average as the sauce was not as tasty from time to time. But then, the damn owner decided to change his supplier of potatoes, and their poutines became really disappointing.

Holy crappamolee. I didn't remember about Patio Vidal's, especially the one in St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu... last time I went there, 4 AM on the Saint-Jean-Batiste, something like TEN years ago....

Brings back memories.

Happy New Year, folks!

Just got back from over 3 weeks in Cambodia and my second tour of 'Nam (yeah, I like saying that...) and had an interesting poutine related experience. While staying at a guesthouse in Phnom Penh I was lounging on some comfy chairs by the lake and decided to order some food (having a mad case of munchies... had happy pizza with a happy cigarette chaser for dinner earlier...). Looked at the menu and noticed "potato fried with cheese and gravy."

Now, to back up for a bit, I have been in Japan for almost 4 years, and let me just say that gravy and real cheese do NOT exist at all. And having not returned to Canada since arriving, I have been 4 years without poutine (or even fries and gravy for that matter).

So, I bolt out of my comfy chair (actually, it was probably much slower than a bolt... probably a sloooow roll into a kneel and then a few clumsy steps) and ordered said "potato with gravy and cheese" at the counter to see what's up. To make a long story short, I polished off three plates of the closest thing I have had to poutine in a loooong time (and it was really quite good... ordered it on a few occasions after that).

So, my message to the OP: be glad that you atleast have the real thing available to you at all times, despite perceived drops in quality. Some of us would love that luxury!
