costco's fries are pretty good, but the gravy is way too salty. tried Anny's the other day, good gravy, but the fries were mediocre. their maple twist cone is awesome!

Yes! The maple twist cone is AWESOME!

The fries there (in my experience) are hit'n'miss. I've had delicious fries one day and crummy fries the next.

had the Vera's poutine yesterday, it was pretty average, but the fries were crispy, gravy was a little salty for my taste and the cheese curds didn't all melt

Pro tip: KFC gravy + Costco fries, cheese curd = profit.

Went to Belgium Fries yesterday afternoon and had the regular poutine. It tasted like the Costco one except the gravy wasn't as salty.

Alright, after seeing the pics on the previous page, I went to La Belle Patatae and tried their smoked meat poutine. I did not like the cheese at all, tasted like rubber erasers. Isn't this stuff supposed to melt? The fries, meat and gravy were good though.

Yea I've heard that MTL style the fresh curds are not supposed to melt very easily.

I like mine with melty cheese and super crispy fries lol, total opposite.

Ya, its a matter of personal preference whether or not you like the squeaky cheese.. its the original style. Personally I quite like it.. A nice change to the gloppy cheese of other places.

it was like 3.99 the last time i had it. they come in the styrofoam plate/bowl things that you usually get with the chicken strips + fries combo if that helps...i've never ordered a side of fries before, so i don't know how big those are. it's quite a portion if you ask me lol

i think la belle patate has the most authentic poutine around here, likely the best, you can't beat the real thing

I got this deal 29.99 for Large Pizza 10 Chicken Strips + Fries, Large Pooutine and 4 cans of pepsi.

Shit the poutine was like KFC GRAVY, Melting cheese and like crispy fries like church's chicken fries but cut like kfc fries

Wife had a craving for poutine, so I dug up this thread and decided to go give Anny's Dairy Bar a try. Poutine was pretty good. What really hit the spot, though, was the maple butter twist. It was perfect with the poutine as a "chaser" (for lack of a better word). Alternate between the ice cream and poutine, ftw!

Poutine 7.5/10
Maple Butter Twist 9.75/10

The combo.......... 10/10 pure synergy

The curds are squeeky. Cheese did not melt, but if you push them under the hot gravy they semi melt. It's the way poutine is supposed to be.

BTW, Hondaracer, they sell curds there. $23.00/kg. Not bad, I guess. It's hard to get that shit. Apparently, a lot of Quebecers go there to buy the cheese.

I guess home made is best, since you can make it the way you like. I recall Costco used to steam the cheese curds before putting them into the fries and gravy. This was long ago and they obviously don't do that anymore.

Next. Fritz. I would like to go tonight, but two helpings of poutine might be enough to send me to the grave. LOLOLOL

I bought 2 coupons for the large poutine ($20 value) at La Belle Patatae. I am planning to give it a shot tonight.

Any recommendations?

So, I went to Fritz tonight. The poutine was better than Anny's. The cheese was really good. Straight from Québec, so they say. The cheese is not squeeky and melts easily. It actually has flavour. It's more expensive. Time to go a few different places next week.

I cannot go back to Costco poutine ever again. OK, maybe....... it's $3.99 afterall.
