Probably not up to Canadian standards though. Was there suppose to be mayonnaise? That's cheese on top.

Looks like the first guy that ate that didn't think to much of it:rolleyes:

Is that meat in your poutine? I've heard of such things but only had the gravy'n'curds original.

Ground beef?
I've only had poutine once.
Two weeks ago. I had a couple of bits from my son's takeout.

We don't disagree on much Brian, but. . .

Poutine is excellent. But, as FO said, doesn't have meat (looks like chili), mushrooms or yam fries as ingredients. Fries and Chili is one of my most favouritist things though.

Pierre Poutine (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/sloppy-work-by-pierre-poutine-leaves-lengthy-trail-for-robo-call-sleuth/article2356332/) is a twit.

Canadian nachos. Classic poutine is chips/fries with cheese curds and gravy, I think. But there are quite a few variations.

Looks like it should be eaten with a side order of Lipitor.;)

If you're logging in January or fishing in the cold seas, it's great stuff. But otherwise, fatal.

That sounds like something a fella could eat.

Would take a distant third to good nachos or chili cheese fries, though!

Nope. The gravy should be chicken gravy (St. Hubert style), and the fries should be hot enough to melt the curds. And you should play a round of miniputt golf while you're waiting for your order.

Never had meat in a poutine...but, to adapt something botebum-Doug once said, I'd eat that.

Had a suspicion it wasn't the real deal. That due to the threads we've had here before, in which poutine was discussed.

It was an organic kind of restaurant across Seattle on Bainbridge Island , so I was surprised to see it on the menu at all. You guys are right, it was too greasy. I left a couple layers of the fries on the bottom when done. Still by the time we hit Sequim, I needed to visit the loo. ;)

Changed my mind about it being alright, I'm going to skip it from now on.

I got dinner at a vegan poutine food stand in Portland a few months ago. Good stuff. I ordered mine with vegetarian gravy and real cheese curds.

Real poutine is good stuff, if you can get it in Quebec or thereabouts. We were on a trip from Maine to Ontario once upon a time, and stopped at a McDonalds for lunch. They had a poutine on the menu. I was not even tempted to try it. :D

As noted above, great stuff if you're logging off half a forest after lunch. Great energy

A liitle haiku for you:

Old man sees doctor:
--"I've just eaten some poutine."
--"Angioplasty."
