Nestled among ‘dépanneurs’ and quaint restaurants of the Rosemont sector, this new arrival stands out because of its many inventive ways of serving poutine. As you are being shown to your table, you are asked if this is your first visit. Then, you are handed a list of ingredients never before included in this dish. While checking out the choices on the menu, you realize you can create your own poutine. There are a variety of choices to add to the classic fries, sweet potatoes or small nugget potatoes. You then have a choice of either Feta, Swiss, goat or nacho cheese sauce.
All of these ingredients are topped with a classic red wine, three peppercorn sauce or meat sauce. There is also a choice of vegetables and a variety of meats if desired. While you are indulging in this fast food delicacy, why not have it 'au Gratin'? Poutineville serves the largest poutine in town! For $29.00 you will eat through 5 lbs. of fries with your personal choice of ingredients. This can feed around 10 hungry friends. It was a long held dream of Kosta Kariotakis to invent an original poutine, and with a restaurateur friend they developed new recipes before opening Poutineville. This ‘new concept’ restaurant is at the corner of Beaubien and De Lanaudiere. The originality of having a choice between a vegetarian or meat poutine will undoubtedly win over the hearts of many Montrealers.
Poutineville replaced a Greek restaurant and in time will be refurbished. At noon it is invaded by local residents and workers in the area. The owners are still amazed at the rapid success of their new restaurant.
