Poutine

with 6 comments

Went out to a comedy club called Yuk Yuk’s last night, to see the wonderful Marc Maron. Funny man. Drank beer, got hungry, thus, had some poutine on the way home. For those of you who’ve not seen poutine before, I thought I’d take a photo for you.

The box is about 4 x 4 inches, and about 2 inches deep, packed full of chips covered in beef gravy and cheese curds. I really have no idea what a cheese curd actually is, but it kinda tastes like a more cheddar-y, squeakier version of mozzarella. It’s really really tasty, very filling, and apparently my local place, Smoke’s Poutinerie is one of the good places to buy it. As comfort food goes, I’m fairly sure this is pretty close to the top of the heap.

  4. I’m with you there, and thanks for the photo you’ve made me very hungry! I’ve also heard some Canadians speak of Smoked Meat Poutine – apparently a bastardised thing but also very nice.

  5. I’d been busy at work and only now am catching up on your blog & drawings. I had no idea you were in Toronto until now! I sure hope my adopted city has been good to you :D
