When in Canada, one must eat the national dish of poutine. Poutine is French fries, slathered in brown gravy and topped with cheese curds. It’s filling, soft, a bit rubbery and mildly salty but not too savory; in fact, it’s less savory than I thought it would taste. Our daughter, Mia, and I tried poutine for th first time in Montreal at Patati Patata and (I) washed it down with a tasty IPA. We split a burger and salad we dressed with the House Creamy Basil dressing. We took refuge from the sun and heat and both agreed, pass the poutine please (especially if the brown sauce is also housemade.) As they say in Montreal, ‘ s’il vous plait. Un poutine.
