Vive la Poutine!

Here at Corrie Canuck we’ve discussed a variety of British foods including pork scratchings, chips, curry, and baked beans, amongst others.
Now let’s examine some of our own Canadian dishes and show the Brits what they’re missing.
Today, we showcase poutine: the holy trinity of fries, gravy and cheese curds.
For you folk in the UK who haven’t tasted this dish, it’s what we do to chips in Quebec. Take a serving of chips. Cover it with gravy and cheese curds. Serve it in a Styrofoam bowl and voila. Poutine.
Watch this dated yet probing video and learn:

In my opinion, the only good poutine is served in Quebec. Enlighten me if you know a good poutine place outside La Belle Province.
And to our overseas readers: Tell us if you’ve eaten poutine and lived to tell the tale. If you’re travelling to Canada, you may want to read our Glacia’s poutine travel advisory.
