The place we chose for this evening's poutine was Ma'am Bolduc which had been recommended as a local favourite on a blogger's website. We arrived on a cold autumn evening and promptly ordered the poutine regulière, the basic version of the dish. Actually, everyone else ordered the basic version and I ordered the bacon and onion version!
Underneath the crispy bacon and cooked-to-perfection onion, I found the poutine gravy and chips and chunks of cheese curd. The chips were the type that you get here, some skin on and some skin off, but always yummy! They call them 'frites maison'. I wish I could make chips that good at home!
Comparing this poutine to others we've tried, I would say that it is up there with the best. Interesting that most reviews will place La Banquise at the top but maybe that's for nostalgic reasons; it's the place people go after a night of drinking out on the town for comfort food. I can understand that. In Sydney it's the late night kebab. Whatever, Ma'am Bolduc trumps La Banquise
