I am currently in Toronto, Ontario. This is my first trip to Canada (aside from the Canadian side of Niagra Falls, which I am told doesn’t really count), and as my travel partner and I were discussing things on our to-do lists for the trip, I told her the only thing I want to do while we are here is try Poutine.

I have a few friends on Twitter that have mentioned Poutine and I have been DYING to try it…

My friend visits Toronto a few times a year but she has never even heard of it. The locals we’re staying with? They were all smiles when I mentioned it – they are fans.

After hanging out at Hotel Drake’s rooftop lounge Friday night, we headed to the Poutini’s across the street.

Poutine, poutini's, Canada

What exactly is Poutine? I have to compare it to something in the states, of course. I suppose it’s Canada’s answer to our Chili Cheese Fries.

Poutine is hot french fries, layered with fresh cheese curds and hot brown gravy. The gravy melts the cheese curds a bit…and it’s simply divine. I got mine with “the works” which was cheese curds, gravy, sour cream, chives and bacon. The person who made mine made a mistake and added two servings of gravy.

OMG. Mouthgasm.

This was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life.

I’m not even kidding.

    I’ve never tried Poutine but it does sound delicious! I love chili cheese fries so I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy this as well. I’ll be ordering it next time I see it on a menu!
