The most distinct Canadian food is poutine. It was invented in Quebec around the 1950’s and features french fries and cheese curds with hot peppercorn gravy poured on top. And if you have the perfect poutine the hot gravy will melt all the cheese curds. One of the best things about poutine is the things you can do with it. This basic poutine recipe can be spruced up in anyway you could possibly desire. Want to use sweet potatoes? Absolutely. Vegetables? You got it. Meat? Bring it on. Spicy curried gravy? Why not. The ways poutine has been adapted are countless and can easily be made to suit any taste. There are restaurants and food trucks devoted to serving you the best possible poutine.
But, talking up the famous dish does not usually help the collective gasp of foreigners when you explain what poutine is. They are usually confused by the idea of french fries, cheese and gravy being a singular dish. Some say it could be good but they are just not sure about it. They say they would have to try it for themselves before they give it a verdict. Others, question your sanity. It is absolutely a greasy mess. And eating too much of it could probably give you a heart attack. But these two criteria can usually be applied to any food that falls into the guilty pleasure category.
One of the most well known ways to get your poutine fix in Canada is from the fast food chain, New York Fries. Despite the name, this is a Canadian company. Their poutine menu is pretty impressive: butter chicken poutine, pulled pork poutine, chili poutine, bacon double cheeseburger poutine, and the veggie works amongst a few more. It is far from the most extensive poutine menu but it is the classic location. Poutine may be a strange and even funny dish, but the greatest part is that the dish which is best described as hangover food or a guilty pleasure is the closest thing Canada has to a national dish.
