Heading to Montreal – the poutine capital of the world – and wondering where to find the best? Well, for french fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy, there is no better place to binge eat than at La Banquise. Located in the Plateau area of hipster Montreal, expect to find a long-line up outside this modest diner. With dozens of poutines to choose from, traditionalist stick to the classic (simply cheese and gravy) but for those looking to try something different, there’s no shortage of artery clogging options. Poutine Elvis with ground beef, peppers and mushrooms. Poutine Obelix, with smoked meat. Poutine Chicks with breaded chicken. Poutine Kamikaze with Merguez sausage, hot peppers and Tobasco. The list goes on…For the Grand Poobah of poutines, try the T-Rex. It’s a carnivore’s delight with every meat imaginable piled high atop the cheesy fries. La Banquise (994, Rachel Est) is open 24-7. So, if you’re craving dirty poutine mid-day or as a late night, post drinking snack, there really is no wrong time to indulge. http://www.restolabanquise.com
