Poutine is a mindblowingly simple concoction that originated in Quebec. Many variations are now available, but the original combination is still the best in my mind. Poutine, pronounced Put-Sin, consists of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds. As with most things, when each individual component is spot on, the resulting creation will naturally be much better. Piping hot crunchy french fries, well seasoned smooth gravy with just the slightest hint of sweetness, and fresh springy (not chewy) cheese curds. There's really nothing like it. This is typically a dish found in Montreal and the surrounding areas, but I was lucky enough to stumble upon a poutine shop last time I was in Brooklyn. Can't wait to go back. I decided that my arteries were in need of a workout, so I washed my poutine down with the house burger.
How good does that look?? A well made burger is truly a thing of wonder, but that subject is for another post all together. As for me, I have a plane to catch! Flight leaves at 5:30pm and will be touching down in Copenhagen around 5:30am (EST) tomorrow. Be looking for a post tomorrow or Wednesday for my first glimpses of the city and all it has to offer.
