Bon Bake poutine
This one is like a poutine bake with its fresh from-the-oven look. There was a bit of smoked meat in there to emulate the Montreal Smoked Meat or something. Sauce was good, chips were great. This one was amazingly good in fact but not because it resembled a poutine but more because everything fused together and I guess I was hungry for heaps of melted 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.
