Man, this poutine for Canada day was majestic. The curd cheese was just slightly off in texture but in taste it was super accurate. Chips were fantastic as well as the gravy. One of the best poutine I ever had in Melbourne but it's only a one-off event and each year the recipe changes so while it's always a surprise it's hard to top this one.
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.
