I'm a self-professed potato addict but it wasn't until I moved to Ottawa, that I discovered poutine and truly needed Potato-head Anonymous. Fresh squeaky curds and gravy on top of handcut fries, not to mention the varieties of toppings! Sparks Street in Ottawa is currently holding a 3-day Poutine Festival where you can get your fill of all sorts of exotic poutine combinations. I dropped by yesterday and got myself a Sriracha bbq pulled pork poutine, while not-so-secretly eyeing all the other kinds I wanted to try such as jerk chicken poutine and butter chicken poutine.
If you're in Ottawa today (Sunday 18, 2015), don't miss out on this delicious event! Oh, and if anyone decides to try the butter chicken poutine, please drop a comment. I want to know what I missed out on. :P
Till next time,
