After an adventurous day snowshoeing or boarding, nothing beats a savoury, hot, and filling plate full of Canada’s best guilty pleasure – poutine.
A Quebec classic for those cold, snowy days, this irresistible dish consists of thick-cut fries topped with cheese curds and lots of gravy. Here’s where to get yours in Kits.
Local pubs Colony and Darby’s both do a mean poutine for just $8.95. Colony’s uses hand-chipped Kennebec potatoes and a Montreal chicken gravy, while Darby’s uses a vegetable gravy and offers an add-on of house-smoked pulled pork for an additional $3.95
Corduroy‘s cozy ski-shack atmosphere is perfect for a big place of gravy-soaked poutine. At $12, Corduroy’s uses fresh-cut fries, 2-year-old aged cheddar cheese, and a Guinness jus.
How about an extra fancy poutine for breakfast? Linh Café does just that. For $14.95 you’ll get hand-cut fries topped with a poached egg, black forest ham, Swiss cheese, and a peppercorn gravy. But hold on, that’s not all folks. For an additional $4.50 they’ll add house-made sausage, and for an additional $30(!), you can top it all off with a half butter-poached lobster. Nice.
A classic poutine is always available at The Oakwood. Their fries and cheese curds are draped with succulent house-made beef brisket, and it’s all served up in a hot cast-iron skillet for $15.
Over on Granville Island, Edible Canada has a fine-dining version of poutine with hand-cut fries, authentic Quebec cheese curds, and Mt. Lehman roasted duck, all for $19 a pop.
