  • Poutine is one of those foods I just gotta have every so often. Its the food of the gods. So I supposr Canafians are gods? I wouldnt go so far as calling it ambrosia because instead of imparting immortality upon eating it but more like shortening your life span. When ever my friends from from sf visit their first stop is to buy bags of cheese curds to take home and freeze so they can make there own poutines.

    When I hit White Rock/Surrey, I always hit Moby Dicks for fish and poutine, and bring home some of your delicious Sour Cream & Bacon Ruffles. I wish I could find those in the states, they are absolute goodness. Where would you suggest going for poutine in that neck of the woods? Any good seafood places you suggest?

  • I'm not familliar with white rock but I havnt found a good poutine in Surrey, where I live. The best poutine I found near me is in New Westminster at Cockney Kings fish and chips. $5 and its meal sized. If u get take out ask to get the gravy n cheese "the stuff" in a cup so u can mix it before u eat it. It gets soggy and gross otherwise. My favorite is Fritz down town but its kinda expensive now. If one is truley feening White Spot has a fairly adequate poutine, fries are good but the gravy is not that great. My favorite burgers are there too so it makes the poutine passable. There are White Spots every where, its like Red Robins. Ill have to try Mobey Dicks, sounds promising. I'm not really into seafood but White Rock has tons of great places so I'm told.

  • I'm enjoying my poutine right now.....

    Wow, heaven. It was worth fighting the crowd around that truck and the wait.

    Totally worth it.

    Also how do you pronounce it? I thought it was 'poo - teen' but the guy at Skillet pronounced it 'poo - tin'?

    Sorry, but since nobody else wants to ask, I need to.

    How can you have food in your fridgd and not know what it is?

    Did you buy the fridge fully stocked with random food? Does your neighbourhood suffer from very odd break ins? Are alien abductions getting weirder? Or did your partner buy it and you have not yet reached the stage of a relationship where you can talk about what's in the fridge?

    Please, I would love to know.

    Maybe he has roommates or family members that live there and use the fridge too?

  • I know, but that would be boring and not funny. I have my fingers crossed that it is something more exciting than that.

    If that is the explanation, he needs to stop taking all the credit for the fridge by calling it "my fridge".

    Um, 'poo-tin' as in Vladimir Vladimirovich? I've always heard it pronounced 'poo-teen'.

    "Puh-tin" or "poo-tin" (u have to sound french to say it so its something in between those two) is the french/eastern and I assume correct way to say it. In Vancouver we use the other I assume bastardized pronounsiation. Lol

  • "Poo-tin" is the supposedly legitimate pronunciation, but it sure sounds stupid.

    Interestingly enough, I first discovered poutine in Montreal.

  • However you say it, it was delicious, and filling. Wanted to take a nap afterwards!

    Thank you Canada.
