Big Lord poutine
Oh yeah, get this big thing in my mouth. In an amazing turn of events this big poutine is also vegan with coconut cheese and all but still tastes great. Lord of the Fries are really doing something special here without having to be the best. In the menu they don't say it's a poutine but simply label it as the French Canadian sauce which is fair enough. With a couple locations in Melbourne CBD they are by far the most accessible "poutine" in the country. It works when I've got a late-night craving of chips, gravy and cheese.
Is it a pout?
It's a real opinion of a real meal bought in a restaurant but not all restaurants labelled the meal as being a poutine and it's all in the spirit of discovery and fun. Some labelled the dish as "loaded fries" or simply with the ingredients "Chips, Gravy & Cheese". I wish everyone would try every poutine and all the close variations. For any chef or worries restaurant owner the best solution is still to do more research on poutine, its origin and the existing variations in Quebec. Otherwise the "loaded fries" label is a very polite way to tell that you're not going to have curd cheese, for example, even if it won't prevent a Quebecois from thinking about poutine while eating loaded fries.
