That poutine looks quite dry.

Which means I'd probably like it, but it also wouldn't really meet the standard definition of poutine.

It's a reasonable facsimile, but nothing like in Quebec.

A bit more cheese, too. It doesn't look HALF as heart attack-inducing as it should.

Even I knew that, and I'm from Europe


In the media here, Canada does seem pretty different from the USA. So I couldn't tell anything about that besides that it's based on mediastuff. Have to visit both countries sometime to actually see it for myself!

Forgive me for becoming one of 'those' people who do the youtube clip, but it maybe has to be said.

Most of the gravy was at the bottom of the pile, which worked great for me - most of the fries had a little gravy-soaking, and a few bits of cheese. The best ones, I found, were the ones with some gravy but LOADS of cheese.

It was really awesome cheese.

The color's a little off in the picture - it looked a lot more appetizing in person. I also found myself wanting to dunk them into ketchup, but I guess old habits die hard.

I sometimes add ketchup to my poutine - gravy, cheese and ketchup

So do I. Turkey dressing is good with it, too.

Hi, my name is Kip, and I’m ketchupaholic. I put it on eggs, Kraft Dinner (macaroni & cheese), and on a whole bunch of assorted foods--including poutine. It’s to the point where my family has practically disowned me for “ruining meals.” Their eyes roll, mouths open in shock...and my standard reply to their predictable horror is, “I’m not ruining anything…I’m enhancing!”

Non-ketchup people just don't understand...
