If you haven't been to Canada before, you probably have no idea what poutine is. And for good reason. It's Canadian and not one of the more famous exports. It's real simple: In the basic recipe for Quebec style poutine, crispy French fries are covered with fresh cheese curds and topped with hot brown gravy The key to good poutine... More

I was visiting Toronto and obviously I had to try the Poutine, so I went to this place (the name seemed promising). I must say, I completely enjoyed my meal! I thought that the cheese curds were squeaky and delicious, the gravy had a ton of flavor, and the best part - the fries stayed crisp even while covered in... More

The gluten free option is what sold me on this place (as well as the good reviews). Great service, yummy poutine, creamy garlic sauce was great too. Also, one of the only places open super late! My only issue is that at the end your poutine is literally swimming in gravy. If you're super hungry get the large size (don't... More

The fries are crispy, the curds are squeaky, and the gravy savory. Yes, this is the real deal, and really great Poutine. Even more interesting is the West Queen Street neighborhood, which is a funky, hipster, up-and-coming-not-quite-there-yet cool, older part of town with small, interesting shops. Go for the Poutine, enjoy the neighborhood.

was craving poutine, I heard about this place and went, but was disappointed because the gravy have too much salt, nothing to do with the original poutine from Quebec, and it is quiet expensive. I even think Mcdonald poutine is better.

This was our first and only time to try poutine, and it was delicious. We had seen Anthony Bourdain's 'Layover' that featured a midnight meal at Poutini's, and had to try it. Delicious.

I had the maple bacon poutine and my husband got the traditional. Very delicious! I really liked all of the choices we had to pick from. Mostly, we chose this place because they are known for having safe gluten free choices! For me, its a medical necessity, not a choice. Its hard to find places with fried food that I... More

As non-Canadians, we had never tried poutine before. It sounded pretty gross but we are converts. The poutine here is fresh and spicy. A diet-buster but worth it!

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
