Talk to me about poutine.

Recommended Posts

Trillin, yes? I don't remember much else about it.

Yes, Trillin. He talked the way he always talks, about where he ate it and with whom, and how he liked it. And he did like it. It was a funny article.

I'm thinking there's no way poutine can be bad --- french fries, cheddar cheese curds, and thick brown gravy. Sounds like one of my favorite college snacks, in fact.   So where's the best place to

That's the strange thing to be proud about.   What was that Wisconsin-themed bar on Grand Street serving cones of cheese curds? I don't hate them, but the resemblance to polystyrene lowers them in t

There, I've said it.

Maamm Bolduc maybe?

I definitely would not call that poutine. Poutine requires cheese curds, plain and simple. You can certainly call it disco fries if you like!
