If you’re a true Montrealer, then there’s nothing you love more then good poutine! Whether you’re all about the fries, the cheese or the sauce, you KNOW what good poutine tastes like. While many people don’t really understand how we can eat our fries covered in gravy and cheese, there’s just something about it that makes Montrealers go crazy for it. So what is it that makes poutine from average to A-MA-ZING? Is it the crispiness of the fries? The sauce that has just the right thickness and flavor? The cheese that melts in your mouth? Honestly, it’s the combination of all three. Mastering the art of poutine is no easy task. And while many restaurants have tried to make the perfect poutine, some have failed and some have succeeded. So here are Montreal’s Best Poutine spots you have to check out next time you’re craving a good poutine.
I wouldn’t be a true Montrealer if I did not include La Banquise in the list. They are the KING of Poutines. Keeping this in mind, their prices are a bit higher then you’re standard poutine spot, but once you have a bite, you’ll forget all about the price!
