Okay, I just had to share this with you.
Remember last week, when I asked if anyone has any suggestions on what to eat/do in Montreal? Cidell urged me try poutine, a “wonderful disgusting diet breaking bowl of french fries, gravy and cheese curds”. Sounds good to me! That was the first time I had ever heard of the dish.
Well… yesterday, the NY Times published an article on this Quebecois delicacy, which got me even more excited to try it. They mentioned a website, montrealpoutine.com, that is a great reference, especially their list of 24 hour poutine joints.
Then… this morning, I’m browsing the Seattlest site, when I see yet another mention of poutine! It’s written in response to the NY Times article, and they say that Aussies are also fond of poutine, so an Australian chef at a local restaurant has got it on the menu.
So after all this poutine hype, I am dying to have some!
