Wikipedia describes poutine as "a common Canadian dish, originally from Quebec, made with French fries, topped with a light-brown gravy-like sauce and cheese curds."
We had ours with ground beef, pepperoni, bacon & hotdog sausages. It was sooo good even our 10 year old boy loved it! No wonder the resto we went to had a long waiting line for a table, even late into the night. It's something one shouldn't miss out having when in Montreal.
