I have a friend that I talk to regularly from Saskatchewan, and he introduced me to poutine. I'm interested in trying it, hopefully I can avoid cardiac arrest. Anywhere near Bancroft serve it? If not I'll look for it on my way through Ontario.

The dish of choice in the area at the moment is venison - at other times of the year brook trout (which is actually char) - try also moose sausage/burgers/steaks/roast... I can't for the life of me recall a place in Bancroft that serves poutine. You'll just have to visit Perce Neige, Baie or Defi.

If you're coming from Pa and you happen to be on the QEW whilst passing through the Niagara Region there is a good chip truck in Grimsby. They sell a dish they have entitled "Newfie Fries". Fries, gravy, cheese curds, gravy , turkey stuffing and whatever is leftover from the other day. No joke. Best version of a poutine in this area. I've driven commercially for 5 years on and off, well into the far northern reaches of Quebec and Grimsby's chip truck makes a fantastic one off of the poutine.

here in BC I like poutine from "belgian fries"
but that is far away from tall pines

actually, let me correct this statement, I love pretty much all poutine.

Ugh!!! Harvey's poutine is nothing more than a thing that looks a bit like poutine, is called poutine but is nothing like real poutine. Some of the best poutine I ever had was in Jasper Ab. A pizza restaurant call the Jasper Pizza Place. It used to be a little hole in the hole on main street run by a couple of guys from Quebec. There's why it is so good. Now is is bigger and fancier but the poutine remains some of the best I have had

Come on DAD! Get with the program. Poutine is the best food ever! It shows that you are not a true Quebecois! lol Don't listen to my Dad, go to New York Fries, and degustez! As I recall, there was poutine available on the spectator stages at the different venues last year at the Tall Pines. However the comments weren't that great... Enjoy!

The pizza delight (bancroft) also has something they call poutine but as suggested if it ain't in Quebec it ain't the real deal. IMHO. Pountine just don't taste the sane without Baie dust or rain layered on top.

Chez Chantal's - La Malbaie, Quebec.

It's on the water (St Lawrence) on the outside of a hairpin and you get to watch the world (rural quebec 'tuner' cars that is) from your seat. Not too long ago, you could also watch International rally cars (Duval, McGeer, Richard, Sprongl, Buffum, Warmbold, Erickson, Lageman, ACP etc etc etc) service at the edge of your table while slopping some poutine into your mouth. Before that, you would even see cars zooming through the hairpin, over the tracks into the flying finish...all from the wonderful Casse Croute Chez Chantal.

The FOC team has stopped here for poutine while taking the scenic route to Baie before. I make a stop here several times a year. Take note, they're only open in the summer months now.

I don't have enough poutine experience to say if it was good or not, but the sled shack way the hell out at the end of the last stage of Perce Neige has what I expect qualifies as REAL poutine...cig ashes and all!!!!

Make sure to wash down with a bucket full of Blues.
