      Lots of bars in Maine and Vermont serve poutine to cater to Canadian tourists.

      Metro Detroiter here and I'm annoyed nobody hereabouts has poutine, even though Canada is right nextdoor.

      I had some really good poutine _once_ years back at Falling Down Brewery (now sadly out of business) that included pulled pork but other then that... nothing.

    I have made it several times, I generally add little steaks bits in with gravy though. Having just brown gravy with no meat doesnt seem like it would be satisfying

      Most dedicated poutine places in Canada will let you add meats and veggies to it. I like to add ground beef and green onions to mine and top it with some black pepper

    Europoor here, Im interested.
    Couldn't get any of those cheese curd thingies locally, so I just bastardized the whole thing with some cottage cheese.
    It was pretty tasty.

      If you're gonna use cottage cheese, rinse it, cheese curds are dry
      Also they're not hard to make it just takes time, and the ideal texture only happens in a short window of time, something like 12-24 hours into refrigeration, so to make great poutine you have to plan everything ahead of time
      There are ways to freeze the cheese curds but I haven't looked into it

        Cheese curds used for poutine are heavily salted so they don't have to be used in 24h. You can keep em in the fridge for a couple days before they go off.

          Ideal texture but yeah they hold for a couple of extra days, they just won't squeak as good

      Saw a restaurant in Atlanta that couldn't get cheese curds so they bastardized it with spray cheese.

          Atlanta is also where the world's record was set for the most pancakes made in a set period of time, made possible through the use of spray can pancake batter.

    No one should have gravy without the meat that made the gravy. This is the ultimate poverty food.

      Poutine traditionally was made with vegetarian gravy

          There are versions made with shredded beef and pork with meat gravy
          They add a little vinegar and barbecue sauce to the gravy
          There used to be a Canadian hamburger joint in the US near me but they were pretty shitty so I did a shitload of research on the origins (basically mythology) of poutine so I could make it for myself

            Honestly the only thing I think is non negotiable in Poutine is the cheese curds, I like having meat and veggies in my mine

    Gravy and potato soup sounds pretty gross, and adding the most tasteless cheese known to man (narrowly edging out cottage cheese) isn't really doing anything positive either.

    Tried it once while in Vancouver. It was ok but seems quite overrated. Disco fries are nearly the same thing but without the need to find cheese curds, which themselves are overrated.

      The further you get from Quebec, the worse the poutine gets
      >cheese curds, which themselves are overrated
      Caviar to the general

      Went to Quebec and had Poutine at the diner at top of Chute Montmorency. ( there's a big ass waterfall in Quebec. Did not know that before going there... )

      I don't speak French, and ordered it. The lady corrected my pronounciation. I guess it's Poutyen.

      I hope I didn't accidentally call some old french lady a prostitute....

      A lot of anglos prounounce it as "POO-teen" or "poo-TEEN". It's closer to "poo-TIN", although the vowel sound is slightly different (can't figure out the best way to render it). It sounds like the lady had a strong accent. Sometimes Quebecois add a "Y" sound before vowels. Neither pronunciation is close to "putain", which is prostitute, though. That's pronounced closer to how it looks.

    It's like a regional fast food. If you have it in your area it might be pretty good as an occasional think to have when drunk, but the idea of someone traveling from out of town just to try it is fricking crazy.

    I prefer my fries with meat.
    And jalapenos and black pepper for spice.
    And non-curdled cheese.
    And a light amount of ketchup or bbq sauce instead of gravy.
