Guest Blogger Special: Daryl’s Montreal Poutine Adventure.

September 22, 2008

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!

Goodbye Frujch.

April 4, 2008

Today is frujch‘s last day of operation and it ain’t because of bad business. The students of this SMU student-run-cafe are graduating (my seniors) and I’m going to miss them and the food so much. 😦 Especially so for Nabilah and the ‘Rosemary Me?’ grilled sandwich.

The worse part is, I could not make it down for tonight’s farewell party because of a busy schedule. However, I will be at frujch next friday for an unofficial last visit – Pecha Kucha Night. Daryl will be presenting then, can’t wait. 🙂
