This week is Poutine week in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City. Participating restaurants have one special poutine and voters can vote for their favourite. We went to try one close to us at Lou Dawgs. Their special for the week is the Mighty Loutine – Fresh Cut Fries smothered with homemade gravy (made from scratch using chicken bones smoked in-house), fresh cheese curds from Quebec and freshly slow smoked pulled pork. The gravy did have a very smoky flavour and lots of pulled pork on top of the poutine. Yummy.
We also got the dry rub chicken wings. I didn’t like the wings as much though, it was very power-y with the dry rub and not much taste to it, only went I put on the sauces. We had as well the sampler sliders – chicken, pulled pork and brisket. It was alright, nothing really special. The poutine was the best of all.
