Many argue that Poutine is our national food. Who can say no to french fries covered with cheese curds and delicious gravy just hot enough to melt the cheese to a gooey perfection?
Over the past few years, poutine shops have popped up around town offering a delicious alternative for the late nighter (post bar, post pub, post exam, walk of shamer) who craves something beyond the standard fare.
Recently, during a stroll in happening Queen Street West, and a stone throw away from the hip Drake Hotel, we decided to try Poutini’s (1112 Queen St. W http://www.poutini.com).
The venue has become very popular with the late night crowd (open till 3:30am on the weekend) from the Drake, the Gladstone and the near by bars of Ossington Street and for good reason.
Poutini’s offers a great selection of poutine, from “The Traditional” (fries, cheese curds and gravy) for about $6 and change for the Large size to“The Works” (fries, cheese curds, gravy, sour cream, bacon and chives!!!) for just a bit over $8 for the Large serving. There is even a vegan option so nobody can feel left out!
So, If you are in the neighborhood and feel a craving for something delicious that may fill you with national pride try Poutini’s. Enjoy!
