This poutine is creative in a new and innovative way; it has a layer of melted cheese and a layer of unmelted leftover cheese on top. While I can appreciate the quantity of cheese in this poutine I can't quite get the reason for the Extra-cheese to be in a completely different state than the original serving of cheese. The gravy was so-so too.
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.
