It's really nothing special. Have you eaten fries with gravy? Now imagine some partially melted shiatty store bought mozzarella with it. Grats, you have now tasted poutine.

BK has had poutine for nearly 2 decades. I assumed McD did too.

Ambivalence: syrynxx: I would love to try poutine without driving to Canada and having them foist their socialized healthcare and marijuana on me while I'm eating.

Fries, gravy, cheese. It's not hard to make. Canada doesn't have some special poutine magic.


Cheese curds, buddy.

Sin_City_Superhero: I've never had poutine, and I wanted to try making it at home. Would I be really, really farking it up if I used slices of Kraft American cheese, instead of cheese curds? American cheese melts so nicely...


God no.

It may even tasted decent, but. It would not match a poutine.

You also wouldn't want a really melty cheese, it should partially melt and get gooey, but still have largely intact curds.

If you really want to try one, getting imported cheese curds will make a passable poutine. Just know that it would be a lot better with fresh curds.

I think that would be like telling an Italian woman that her great grandma's secret sauce recipe tastes like Ragu.

FreakyBunny: This is where you can get the best, unadulterated poutine anywhere. Made by two Korean geniuses who have unlocked the secret. It's fast, and it's food. But it's not fast food. It's distinct and perfect, not generic and meant to appeal to the masses. I go there no more than twice a year...any more would be unwise...and dangerously wonderful.

Given the size of Canada, you can imagine my thrill to find that the best poutine is within a half hour drive of me.

\won't say that the chip truck in the parking lot of the Canadian Tire on Merivale has the best poutine
\\but it definitely has the closest poutine

apoptotic: I'm not surprised. Even in western Canada, KFC and Dairy Queen have been serving poutine for years.


As have Harvey's, A&W, Costco, lots of places.  I had my first poutine in Quebec in the '80s, but had a hard time getting cheese curds here in the West until the mid-90s.

DownDaRiver: What is it with you wierdos and your obsession over discussing poutine?
For frickin sakes
Its fries, cheese and gravy
Have you never been to Scranton?


If you think that any old fries, cheese and gravy makes Poutine, then that explains what it is that you're missing.

//Had to look up what "Canadian Bacon" was because Americans keep talking about it like it exists
///In 37 years and many Provinces, have never seen it in Canada

Seems the same as peameal bacon.  I have had many slices of it on buns.  It can be found all around Toronto.


Correct.  It can be either pea meal or back bacon.  Americans sadly just don't seem to understand the many, many, variations of bacon that are available for different applications.

Popular Opinion: but they don't have canadian bacon


No one in Canada has Canadian bacon. It's an American thing.

baconbeard: You guys don't have poutine? Wow, America really is a third-world country now.


We haven't stolen the technology yet, but our agents are working on it. Even if they fail, top food scientists it's only a matter of years before we crack the code and reverse-engineer it.

Ohlookabutterfly: Lol at all the 'muricans bashing Canada. Spend your time off kicking puppies too, you illiterate, inbred farktards? Also, KFC poutine is awesome.


Well! That's not very polite.

a particular individual: My main problem with poutine is that if I had it, I'd eat it. It looks delicious and also very unwise.
