Guest Blogger Special: Daryl’s Montreal Poutine Adventure.

So I’m doing a food review (for the first time!) for, and since I’m in Montreal, I’ve decided to find a food that is supposed to taste best from here, and that’s poutine

Poutine is essentially fries, cheese and gravy mixed together. Which is fine if you’re a fan of all three ingredients, but it happens that I’m not a fan of cheese. But just as Amelia wouldn’t let personal taste preference get in the way of great food reviews, I decided to brave it anyway!

Research at Montreal Poutine led me to 4177 Boulevard St. Laurent at a place called Patati Patata, which has the review “If you have only one poutine in Montreal, this should be it”. So a short cab ride later I was at the place, with the following video:

The shop.

The taste-test.

Overall, I finished almost ¾ of that bowl (yes, including the cheese), which is really a testament to how good it tasted. I can imagine to a person who likes cheese, this meal would be awesome. The texture of the cheese curds from Patati Patata was the best part: not too soft and not too hard as well, hence making it real easy to go down.

While I don’t see myself eating a lot of poutine, I can say it tasted good enough for everyone who visits Canada to at least try it once. Just make it at a store rated highly!

    Honestly Daryl, after looking at your expression from trying the poutine, I’m afraid I’m not going to like it much too as I dislike cheese. 🙂 But I’d love to try it at least once. Thanks once again for doing this D! Can’t seem to get it embedded here using Vimeo. *pout.

    Haha omg I must look so retarded but it was fun doing this!

    It’s not actually soya sauce, that’s just the closest thing I could imagine to say for the camera. But yeah it’s a salty gravy!
