I’ve visited Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. By far my favourite city is Toronto. While Montreal has that cool European vibe with the French connection and Vancouver is full of action men looking to hike and ski, Toronto has that fast business feel with everything easily available.
So when I found myself back in Canada I knew I had to get some poutine in Toronto.
Poutine might just be the best dish ever invented. It also feels like the first hipster dish ever created. Poutine is made with French fries and cheese curds topped with gravy. You can add toppings to this and choose sweet potato fries instead (my fav). I googled where to go and went to Poutini’s House of Poutine on Queen Street West (FYI if you’re staying downtown or in the entertainment district, you’re best off getting the tram along to it as it was a bit of a walk). I ordered sweet potato poutine with bacon. It was heaven.
When in Canada you must get poutine. I’ve read they now have vegan cheese and gluten free options at Poutini’s House of Poutine so there is no excuse not to try it.
