We found Poutinville on a web search and were in the neighbourhood after a long day of showing visitors around. It's funny how we don't really go out for poutine unless it's to have it with visitors! A good thing really!
So, as usual I tried the regular poutine the first time we went and it was good, especially with its crispy smashed potatoes instead of hot chips. But that was after a long day of walking; we were all tired and hungry and would have eaten anything! So the next time we went, I tried the Poutineville Special, which is smashed potatoes instead of hot chips, and cheese curds, with shredded beef and a special red wine sauce. OMG! Yum! This dish tops all other poutines that I've tried!
Poutineville is just a few blocks up from Metro Beaubien. It's a relaxed place with lots of seating. There are even TVs showing the ice hockey games so you can enjoy two favourite pastimes of the Canadians!
