Poutine Chronicles 2009 (Part 1)

You know that summer is approaching when you stop at a local chip stand for lunch. I had an urge for a poutine and if you've never had one, you have to try this drippy, messy dish. Fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.

Richard and I lunched in St. Eugene at the Restaurant Au Coin and ordered a medium to share.

It was too cold and windy to eat outside at the picnic tables so we indulged in the car. Not exactly health food, I know, but man-oh-man, was it ever yummy!
Rating on the poutine scale: Four curds (out of 5).

I know exactly how you feel.
When the "urge" for poutine comes, it can't be denied, otherwise, expect to be miserable for the day.

Thanks Maria. Fun site and I loved the video!

Why Oxbow? said...

Poutine. Pronounced like a native would pronounce Celine, according to Richard, so anyone who calls it poo-teen instead of pooh-tin just doesn't know.

It is Canada's contribution to world cuisine, as in que-zin...
