In an interview with Toronto Life magazine, Montreal chef Chuck Hughes lamented that, “Over the past few years, poutine has become known as a Canadian dish, and it is absolutely NOT a Canadian dish. It’s Québécois! “. Indeed, poutine is without a doubt the flagship of Quebec gastronomy. First served in snack bars and fast food restaurants, it can be found today in fine dining establishments, which reinvent the original recipe in countless innovative wayss, all as delicious (and decadent!) as the next.

We present you downtown restaurants that, in times of lockdown, will satisfy your craving by preparing you a poutine to go that’s good to the last fry!
