Canada's Hunger Buster

Indulge with Poutine

Poutine, healer for the hangover, sweet gravied taters for the stomach’s soul. If a single Canadian dish could take over the world, it would be poutine. One bite of hand-cut potatoes, smothered in brown gravy and the day’s freshly made, squeaky cheese will convert any disbeliever. Add meats, veggies, or in the case of Au Pied de Cochon’s porky ducky fois gras, and you’re only improving perfection.
