Best poutine in Montreal

by spikeysteve

Heading to Montreal in a couple of weeks - I'm from Australia and I need to try the best Poutine Quebec has to offer. So help me out here... where do I find it?

Re: Best poutine in Montreal

by GrumpyDiver

At any street corner where there is a chip wagon (i.e french fry vendors). As for the "best" - can't help you there. They all taste more or less the same to me.

I guess everybody's got their own opinion as to where you can find the best poutine in Montreal, but for a really neat experience I'd recommend La Banquise (http://www.restolabanquise.com) at 994 Rachel Est. If you make it out to Quebec City, then I'd definitely recommend Ashton's. Hope this helps!

There's a whole website devoted to Montreal's poutine that I found really helpful, we tried La Banquise based on the review there and it was great. Unfortunately it doesn't look like the website has been updated in awhile but you still may find some helpful info

It seemed like about half the restaurants in the city had poutine on their menu. Even the pizza places.
But, honestly, I had better poutine around Quebec City. There was a little place in the suburbs that was very, very good. Ashton's is hyped up, but I didn't think much of it.
But it's fries, gravy and cheese curds, and they sometimes put chopped up hot dogs in it. It's not really worth going out of your way for.

Poutine is Canada's equivalent of your Antipodean meat pie. It should be simple, just fries, cheese curds and gravy, and the greasier the fries the better. Food for fuel and always best eaten on the hoof and definitely best enjoyed after a beer or twenty. The take away places that are still open after the pubs kick out are the ones to visit!

So forget about the "foodie" recommendations just look for the takeaway or van with the longest queue at 3 am.

Also if you find one (I've only found one in Ottawa) go for a "Poutine Burger" - all the most unhealthy things in the world between two halves of a bun!

Sorry no Montreal recommendation tho' as I was on best behaviour during my last visit. If you're not a 20 pint, 3 am, person then search out one of the 3 Brasseurs pubs, they do an OK (if a little sterile) poutine - www.les3brasseurs.ca

Enjoy!

Hi spikeysteve, I am from Australia too, from Perth and I will spend 3 weeks in Montreal in June-July. On your way back to Australia, would you be able to give some tips or some dos or don'ts for Montreal?

Travel Tips for Montreal

So many festivals!

by mim95

During our one-week stay in Montreal, we saw three festivals in different parts of town. There was the Francofolie, where Francophone music performers showed their talents on stage. Downtown streets were blocked off for the festival. Not too far from there, another street, St Laurent, was also blocked off for a giant street sale. All the shops and restaurants set up tents on the street with lots of bargains! The street was really packed with people! There was another festival too on Mont Royal that we passed by but we didn't have time to go there.

Summer is definitely a great time to go to Montreal, with so many famous events such as the Grand Prix and Jazz Festival.

go to the restaurant Le Père...

by Sweb

go to the restaurant Le Père Saint-Vincent built in 1659 and was owned by Lambert Clauss
one of the 'fighters' for liberation of Montreal against the amerindiens. during the spring it starts off with the Grand prix of Canada, then: Jazzfest (11/2 month),
international movie fest, Benson&Hedges firework show.. it goes on till the end of the summer.

Montreal Tip

by cjg1

was going onto the field at Olympic Stadium before the game. I have never been on Astro-turf or a MLB field before so this was a nice unexpected bonus to the trip. More on Olmypic park in a fore coming travel log.

Stairways

by zChris

The stairways! Those cast iron stairways leading up to the upper level doors are absolutely beautiful. You can find them all over Montreal. I imagine they must cause a lot of accidents in the winter, and they don't exactly live up to disability laws, but their detail and grace gives Montreal character unlike any other North American city.

Montreal is a pretty relaxed...

by chachanine

Montreal is a pretty relaxed city. Just about everything goes and nobody hassles you for anything. But there is one tip I have to give and that is, please speak French whenever you can. Although just about everyone here can speak some English, Montreal is part of Quebec and that means that it's a French speaking town. If you don’t speak any French, at least start your sentence with a bonjour (hello) or pardonnez moi (excuse me). Afterwards, you'd be surprised how easily a Montrealer will be willing to chit-chat in English with you. If you don’t, don’t be surprised if a Montrealer just walks by you giving you a dirty look or passes some disobliging remark. Language is a very touchy issue here and I’ve found that a lot of tourists are completely insensitive to this issue, especially Americans.
