Poutine . . . again!

Lots of you Canadians evidently know all about poutine, but us Californians are clueless. I just read a GREAT post on a blog I follow that gave the best description yet of poutine, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

I found a food truck up the road that has poutine on the menu. I'll go back to test the poutine because the fries seemed like they could hold up against sogginess.

Its a chore, but someone has to report for the ETI rally goer's.

I tried poutine last Sept. when we went to Chilliwack to pick up the trailer and I didn't think it was all that bad. At least I'm still alive. Loren

Those going to Osoyoos will need to stop at the petrol station right by the cg entrance, their poutine is quite good.

We foolishly did not have poutine when we were in Quebec ( or in Osoyoos ) .... but have now tried it in a couple of places here in Calgary and am kind of put off by what passes as gravy !

I can't eat something that looks like I already did.

Like any dish, it is only as good as the individual ingredients. You need good potatoes fried, a good gravy, and good cheese curds. If any one falls short, it affects the overall taste of the dish.

I have had poutine that I thought was not good at all, but some that was absolutely fantastic.

I think I had mentioned on here, but last Sunday morning at Edible Canada, a restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver, I had an Oxtail Poutine that was absolutely fantastic.

braised oxtail, Quebec cheese curds, gravy,
sunny eggs, fried onion, duck fat frites
