This poutine was a champ. It was a super affordable poutine for a bucket-load of amazing food. Seriously, reasonably priced and you'd get pulled meat and curd(-ish) cheese. It's kind of incredible in Melbourne. It was available in some sort of a Subway-like joint but you could enter the fridge on the right of the room and land in a jungle cocktail bar to drink cocktails and eat your poutine. It lasted for a while.
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.
