Usually Chez Claudette, but hell do i want to go get one of those at Dirty Dogs
La Banquise or Orange Julep
I have tried all the classic montreal poutine places and I have to say that the best poutines are found in Montreal arenas (Excluding the Bell Centre). There must be something about the hockey atmosphere but it makes eating a poutine that much better.
I love going to La Banquise! Best place for poutine!
Oh, I’m so not a connoisseur but want to up my game. Restaurant La Belle Province has been my go to spot up till now!
La Banquise, but I would love to try the Fabrice and the Dirty Dogs ones.
A.A. in St-Henri! Poutine perfection.
Poutineville or Chez Claudette
Chez Jerry’s poutine is also one of a kind ! The Rosalie Jerk poutine looks good as well
Julep or Greenspot
Poutine from Greenspot, there are so many choices!
