    I have been in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Montreal and I have enjoyed Poutine many times. I am not exactly sure of all the different recipes but I gave you a link that might help.

    Hello Macvas,

    Not in Md., but if you're ever in Old Town Herndon, Va., try Jimmy's Old Town tavern. They serve up a reasonably good version of Poutine

    My daughter absolutely loves poutine, which she learned to eat when she lived in Canada for 6 years. Sometimes I don't understand that girl!" />

    Living in Arkansas now -  this talk of Poutine is killing me.    Need to travel or make it at home.
     
    Does anyone have favorite recipe for tackling this at home?
     
    thanks,

    I had poutine in Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick.  Enjoyed it each and every time.  Even McDonald's offers it but not as good as the Belgium type fries.

    and there you go - conversations are picked up like they never ended after a silence of 5 years

    Poutine available in at least two places I know of in Cincinnati: Bard's Burgers in Latonia and Senate in Over-The-Rhine.  I've only had Senate's version, where they add braised short rib meat on top the dish.  Very rich, very good.
     
    Cincinnati has a 2nd cousin (twice removed) to poutine - gravy fries with cheese.  Most notable example is to be found at Pleasant Ridge Chili in Pleasant Ridge.

    There's Poutine in Tempe AZ!!
    I just found this place on Urbanspoon this AM and I'm headed there for Lunch! It's called Beaver Choice. They bill themselves as a Scandinavian Bistro, with the owners coming from Sweden. They must have stopped in Quebec on the way here because they feature Poutine as a hangover cure for students from nearby ASU.
    The also feature a inexpensive lunch menu for starving ASU students as well as a regular traditional Scandinavian menu  for Lunch and Dinner including things like Kotbullar - Swedish meatballs, Pytt I Panna - Swedish Hash and Gravlax.
    Can't write anymore because I'm drooling on my keyboard. I'm off to lunch and will report back later.
    Read among yourselves and I'll be right back:
     Well, I'm back from Lunch at Beaver Choice and can report a very pleasant experience. It's in a strip center on the Southwest corner of McClintock & Broadway in Tempe, right behind Ted's (Of Buffalo Fame) Charcoal Grilled Hot Dogs! I can now kill 2 birds with 1 stone!
    It's a storefront, family operated, very clean, seats about 20 + takeout. You order at the counter. I asked the young man if they had Poutine. He asked if I was from Canada! My suspicions were correct! The family immigrated from Sweden by way of a stint in the restaurant business in Quebec. That's where they started making & selling Poutine.
    The family was very friendly & outgoing, taking time to explain their menu and answering mine and other customers questions. I could tell many of the people who came in were 1st timers.
    While I was waiting for my medium sized Poutine ($5.00), the Misses of the family was passing out samples of a delicious Almond Cake.
    Having never eaten Poutine OR Cheese Curds, I had nothing to compare my meal too, but what I had was very good. Hand-cut fries, a delicious Brown Gravy and Cheese Curds about the size of a nut. Very tasty! The medium sized order was just right for a lunch portion. The large size would probably feed 2 people, the small would be a good size side dish.
    I bought a dessert. It was a round ball, a little bigger than a Golf Ball, made from Cocoa Powder, Butter, Eggs and a little flour rolled in Coconut. Boy, was it RICH, but good!
    I'm anxious to go back and try some of their Scandinavian Dishes I give them high marks!

    The hardest part of good poutine is getting good squeaky fresh cheese curd. I wonder where the places being described source their cheese. Since it shouldn't be refrigerated, and has a short shelf life, it is hard to get unless you are close to the producer. Family came to visit from Quebec a few months ago and brought me a bag of cheese curd and my home made poutine...even with frozen fries...was quite good!
     

     
    They also brought me a couple of jars of this delight!

    According to this column poutine will be available at Miller Park in Milwaukee this summer.
     
    I wonder if the Nationals will wear old Expos uniforms when they visit...

    Well if there is any state in the union where good fresh cheese curd should be readily available it would be yours! Report back if you try it...just go easy or you may fall into a poutine coma and miss most of the game.
     
    Speaking of poutine, here was a bowl at Patati Patata in Montreal...
     

     
    ...and another at Le Roy Jucep in Drummondville, which claims to be the birthplace of poutine...
     

     
    and at a roadside stand in Lotbiniere...
     

     
    ...and in Quebec city...
     

     
    All this poutine talk has me day dreaming...mmmmm...poutine!

    At the charming little Chattaway restaurant in St Petersburg, FL, a few weeks ago we were surprised to see "cheese curds, fries, and gravy" on the menu - a note said it was in honor of the Green Bay Packers.  When we asked the management how they ever discovered poutine, they said they had never heard a name for the dish, but that they had been told it was the most famous dish in Green Bay. 
     
    We eschewed the poutine in favor of good rare roast beef...
     
    Cheers, John

    Tony Bad,
    Thanx for the pictures. Now I can compare what I had. The cheese curds I had were much smaller than what you show but it was still good. They probably have a problem getting a selection of cheese curds out here in AZ and have to take what they can get!

    The top picture is, according to several sources, the best poutine in Montreal, and was REAL good, did have rather small pieces of cheese and was not as heavy or filling as others. I say it is all good!

    That's an interesting claim made by the Chattaway.  I took an informal poll of a few Green Bay co-workers and when I described poutine they had no idea what I was talking about.
     
    Tony, I'm hoping it won't be restricted to the Club Level at Miller Park.  It's the only 1 of the 4 seating levels that's sealed off and a person needs a seat ticket just to get in, and traditionally the food served there has been much more upscale than what's found on the other levels.
     
    Ann, the West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe sells poutine at its Milwaukee Public Market location.

    Cool info!
     
    I note that I hit 3 of the 4 top rated places. My family were all good sports.  Can you tell I like this stuff?

    I was thinking the same thing, screaming-the only tribute to the Packers MIGHT be the cheese curds. However, I would have no problem trying them no matter what the reason they are being served!!

    broke down and made some poutine at home this weekend - The cheese curds were far from the fresh needed and it was a very different experience.

    I was able to try it this past Saturday and Monday and it's actually pretty good, but I think it needs more cheese and because it's from a concession stand the fries won't always be fresh out of the fryer:

     
    But it was a nice snack ($7) and I'll definitely buy it a few more times this season.  Perhaps they'll tweak it a bit and add a few more curds.
