They've got Vegan Poutine!

If you like poutine or even just french fries, Poutini's is a must. My family had both the vegan and regular poutine, and the vegan poutine was delicious!

This place is the best poutinerie in Toronto. I'm surprised it hasn't expanded because it's much tastier than the competition. The gravy is good. The fries are good. The curds are good. Nice staff. I do think the large size could stand to be a bit larger, but hey, I'm fat.

We waited for this place to open because we wanted poutine and vegetarian gravy. So glad we waited! Delicious squeaky cheese curds and gravy we wanted to drink.

I got a "tiny" size which was a good size as a snack, I am def looking forward to trying a large when I have the appetite for it! It was great that the vegan gravy is also gluten free. The fries are so good, home cut fries.

Once you've had some, you'll be a changed person. These guys took poutine into a whole new level. Kitchen team coordination was fantastic. If they have decent wine glasses, I would've popped open a bottle of Niagara Pinot Noir or Mercurey to pair with.

I was visiting Toronto recently and a friend found good reviews of this place putting it in the Top 10 of poutine places in Toronto. As an aussie I'm used to chips and gravy. I had the plain/classic poutine of chips, cheese curds & gravy in the large size. It was tasty and different. If I had it again I'd... More

I'll start by saying that this is my 1st and only experience having poutine; I got the small-sized vegan option and the regular, layered poutine w/ cheese curds + gravy. Parts of the thick-cut fries were crispy, but most were soft (though not limp/soggy). Personally, I like my fries crispy, but hey, what do I know what good poutine is... More

yummy poutine with layers of cheese curds in a slightly spicy gravy.... A bit far to go for poutine but if you are in the area it's a must-visit.

Pretty good poutine, but does not measure up to most Quebec poutine (and is expensive for what you get). My biggest beef is that to get the real Quebec experience, you have to order extra curds. They stiff you on the curds.

The layered poutine is awesome. Layered with extra cheese curds. They have vegetarian and vegan options, too. It's basically the best poutine in Toronto that I've tried. The downside is the incredibly loud, and quite frankly often annoying, music. And I love music of all varieties. I just prefer not to be sonically blasted while I enjoy my poutine. In... More
