Ah maannn, I love that place and they celebrate Canada day / Good Beer Week properly with an impressive Canadian taplist but that poutine offering was not up to standards and I guess it's visible in the picture. If you don't have curd cheese at least drown the thing in melted cheese and gravy. Won't spend too much time on it and I'll be back to try their new version.
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.
