Must Eat: La Poutine

My brother and his girlfriend, Brittany, are in town visiting from Mississippi. This is Brittany's first time in Canada so we had to make sure we showed it off in all it's Canadian glory. I've been busy playing tourist in my own town exploring all the gems in Edmonton which, in my opinion, must include FOOD!

We couldn't think of a better Canadian food to start with than some local cuisine from La Poutine! Bonjour.

Lucky for me, there were four hungry people in our crew so we were able to try quite a few varieties. From left to right: Traditional (x2), Italian, and the Supreme.  I'm a traditionalist and love the plain ol' fries, curds and vegan Quebecois gravy but the Italian was surprisingly delicious!  Who knew so many things tasted good with fries and gravy?

If you're in Edmonton, I highly recommend checking out La Poutine.  I think it's safe to say Brittany enjoyed it too as she is already itching to go back.  Welcome to Canada, girlie!  I hope you brought stretchy pants ; )

  18. Poutine was one of my biggest cravings when I was pregnant (that and pink grapefruit - a great balance!) Must get pregnant with #2 so I can eat it guilt-free again!
