The other day Richard and I headed over to Zellers in Hawkesbury.
Zellers is a chain of department stores across Canada where you can find almost anything...including a 50s-style diner tucked into the back of the store.
I really liked the way they displayed their condiments in mini-grocery baskets.
I opened the menu and look at what jumped out at me. Smoked meat poutine! I had to give it a try. (If you want to know more about Montreal smoked meat, click here.)
The waitress kept whizzing by but we finally flagged her down and gave her our order.
And voila, here it is! My first-ever smoked meat poutine.
It was pretty tasty. Crisp fries. But too few curds. The smoked meat was fantastic...thinly sliced, warm and spicy. I usually prefer a chicken gravy to a beef gravy but I suppose this went more with the smoked meat.
All in all, pretty darn good. It gets a 4 out of 5 curds.
