3 Ripoff poutine
What a ripoff this poutine. At some point it may have been a good plan with a set ration of real curd cheese but what I got for nearly $30 was this sad and small fries with shredded cheese. There is no way it's worth that money and it was labelled as a poutine and in town they had posters up of a real poutine to promote this one. I didn't complain because I can't be bothered with arguing about how much of a ripoff this is but this was ridiculous.
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.
