When in Montréal, poutine is a must try. Poutine is a dish made with French fries and fresh cheese curds smothered with brown gravy or sauce. In the Plateau neighborhood, there’s a well known restaurant that serves over 20 kinds of poutine - Resto la Banquise.
As sinful as it sounds, poutine is quite tasty, especially when paired with beer. It sits heavy afterward, so walk around the area for a bit to digest all that goodness you’ve eaten.
Resto la Banquise sells poutine in 2 sizes: regular and large. If you’re with a group, I recommend getting a large size and sharing. The regular size (pictured below) is more than enough for one person. If you’re vegetarian, they’ve got a poutine dish for you too.
|Poutine 3 Amigos – hot dogs, pork and beef sausage, Merguez sausage|
|Poutine Mart – Hot Dogs, Bacon, Mushrooms|
|Poutine Hot Dog|
|Poutine T-Rex – ground beef, pepperoni, bacon, and hot dog|
There are outdoor tables, but you they won’t serve you beer.
Be prepared to wait to get a table.
