Beautiful Indian poutine
Belleville made poutines with grated cheese so great you'd have to excuse them for not finding/using curd cheese. The chips were solid and the spicy house chicken gravy was incredible. It was a close-enough experience to poutine but they also tried doing weirder poutine with the butter chicken poutine. The Paneer cheese was a creative alternative to curd cheese and everything was great about it. It's not a poutine but whatever. I'm missing this place (and the punk rock bar that came after).
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.
