A Kiwi friend once described poutine as a “heart attack on a plate”. She wasn’t completely wrong. Where else could a dish of fries, cheese curds and gravy become a beloved national dish other than Canada?
I’d heard that this new thing called a ‘poutinerie’ had sprung up in Toronto, and I was eager to try. Smokes Poutinerie was the first, and offers over 20 versions of cheesy goodness from the Traditional Poutine to Nacho Poutine to Curry Poutine. Apparently the Pulled Pork is the most popular.
Not wanting to mess with perfection, I ordered the Traditional and dug into my ooey gooey hunk of Canadiana. It’s good to be back.
