Fast Food Poutine: New York Fries

A couple weeks ago, just after another interview, I treated myself and my driver (my stepsister, thank you Sophia!) to some yummy junk food. New York Fries, which is an entirely Canadian company is a fast food place you can find in just about every food court. I used to work there so I know too much and they have this three step process to cook their fries. It's not that great. I often feel like I have this grainy-sandy feeling in the back of my throat after I eat there but that might just…

Poutine number two!!

Saturday we made the trek out to Davie St. for some La Belle Patate. They have a small, medium and large size for poutine, which is immensely exciting. I settled for a medium instead of succumbing to my stomach's idea of hunger. Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge poutine (Medium) + Onion rings for Branden! And a Smoky for Branden <3 It was extremely greasy Branden and me both felt enormously whaley for the next three hours. It diminished after the walk we made from Davie to Waterfront, but still, it's not…

Poutine: Smoke's Poutinerie

I'm going to end this year with my favourite food: poutine! I finally got around to trying Smoke's Poutinerie, which is just past Smithe on Granville street in downtown Vancouver. The prices were average (about $8), all poutine was one size and there is a TON of variety! I opted for the traditional, but some of my friends got a little more adventurous! Hopefully I remember all the names... Traditional Chicken Chili Country Style Double Pork That same week I went again and tried the Double…

Last Saturday I went out to a place called The Metropole Community Pub on 320 Abbott in Gastown (the touristy part of downtown Vancouver). Downtown Vancouver, Poutine, Waffles, Community, Breakfast, Food, Kitchens, Morning Coffee, Waffle

Poutine: The Metropole Community Pub

Last Saturday I went out to a place called The Metropole Community Pub on 320 Abbott in Gastown (the touristy part of downtown Vancouver). Poutine was on the menu for $6 so I dove right in. The fries here were really good and so was the gravy. The cheese didn't taste like anything special but it was perfectly melty. This one was a lot smaller than The Cambie's but it was the same price. Because of the enormous size difference, I'm gonna have to put it under the Cambie. Dunn's Famous…

Poutine #6: Frenchies on our downtown day!

Frenchies is on 425 Dunsmuir (under construction scaffolding right now so it's easy to miss.) It's diner style with the red couch seats and little round corner tables. I wish I'd gotten a picture of the place but there was this enormous $12 poutine in front of me. It was enormous. And BBQ Pulled Pork Poutine. Three of us split it. Three. You can check out the whole menu on their website For poutine rank, this is #3 taste-wise, but #1 price-wise. That said, we're going by taste (my blog my…

Another day of poutine!

Tuesday was a downtown day and of course that means we stopped for some poutine! =D There was a new place that opened at the beginning of July called Mean Poutine (#getdrunkeatpoutine). It's the size of a large closet but don't let that fool you... HUUUUGE. You see that fork? That's your reference. This is twice the size of the La Poutinerie poutine. It was also fantastically delicious. The fries were beer-battered I think. The cheese and gravy were good by me too. I somehow managed to eat…

Poutine: Zako's Deli

I completely overlooked this place when I was making my poutinerie lists! When I was doing my Co-op at BCCRC I once wandered the streets looking for something I felt like eating. Pizza wasn't doing it, and I stumbled into this Deli. The owner is the NICEST person and the poutine is AMAZING. The rest of the menu looks and smells delicious as well. Anyway, after months and months, I made it back to do my poutine review =) For $6.50 you get this large poutine I dove right in... ... and ate my…

POUTINE: Firefighter's Club

IT HAS BEEN SO LONG which is really a good thing because I don't have anywhere to work out anymore D: BUT. You can't keep me away forever. Branden's parents invited us to go with them and his grandparents for Mother's Day. It is his Grandma and Grandad's favourite place to go and they have their usual spot and their usual meal and it's really cute teehee. I ordered the Firefighter's poutine (duh!). It was a pulled pork poutine and the fries were AMAZING. The cheese curds were good and the…

Poutine: The Spud Shack

Well it has been a long time since I had one of these, hasn't it!? My glorious friend Paul graciously introduced me to this fantastic little place, right by New Westminster skytrain station and it was really good! I wish I'd gotten better photos. I got a medium for $7, and they also serve beer and other things. I forgot to get a photo of the menu! Sorry! The gravy was really good and the cheese was actually squeaky! Personally, I don't put a lot of weight on squeaky cheese but I know some…

SFU, where I just graduated from, finally got a fancier dining establishment to open up there which is where I found myself when I went up to help my friend invigilate the midterm for the class she's teaching (I have really cool friends <3). I saw poutine on the menu and you know how it is... We split it between us so the photos shown are half the amount you get. Also this was a beef poutine. The gravy and the beef were freaking delicious, and the fries were amazing! The cheese was good but…

Poutine: The Cambie

I have not been out for a long time! Not for me anyway. On Wednesday the 12th, I walked the stage for my graduation from my Bachelor's of Science degree =3 I'm a biologist now! An unemployed one, but it happened. My friends and I went out after to celebrate being graduated and mostly unemployed. The Cambie is on 300 Cambie St (SURPRISE) in Vancouver. They serve food nice and late so it's a great place to stay at and have a drink. For the record, I had a Bazooka Joe, my first tequila shot…

Fast Food Poutine: A-ampersand-W

(Note: the title looks like that because "&" isn't allowed in the box... lame) Herro!! I hope you guys are ready for some greasy good because A&W put out their wonderful new coupons and they included (OMG) POUTINE! My friend had some bad news, so we staged a kidnapping and snoped her right out from coffee with her mother ;) As you can see, it came in that generic fast food container but dude, this is one of the better ones! The gravy is amazing! It tasted like it could be chicken gravy, and…

Poutine: The Kaboom Box

Food truck Wednesday happened at SFU last week!! Guess what I found? THE FREAKING KABOOM BOX! The last two or three times I've tried to find them and eat, they'd run out or been closed and I had been left sad (and in the rain, thanks Vancouver). BUT NOW... Hells yea, b*tches! And it's vegetarian! I didn't even know! I LOVE MUSHROOMS. (It came to $6.50 after tax.) Mushroom gravy is the best guys. Seriously. It is AWESOME. And the cheese was really good stuff. I wish there was more (not that…

Sunny Saturdays =D

So I had a fabulous day downtown yesterday. Ania from Anabelle's Make-Up who you can follow on Twitter told me that Shoppers Drug Mart started carrying essence in Canada! Oh man, I got so excited you have no idea. I decided I might as well go in while I was downtown. The woman there lied straight to my face, saying they didn't carry that brand. Turns out for some reason only our ghetto store in the suburbs carries them. OH WELL. The real reason to go downtown yesterday was poutine. Dunn's…

La Poutinerie!

So apparently this blog is becoming about nails and poutine, I hope nobody minds =) Today we intended to go to The Flying Pig at 1168 Hamilton, but we got caught up at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and found this little treasure truck. LA POUTINERIE 11 kinds! (Fries and Fries + Gravy don't count as poutine) Branden got a Chicken poutine And I went with the good old classic It was delicious. So points for this one, the fries were like home-made and it was not at all heavily greasy. However, the…

Vancouver Escapades... and eventually poutine!

Sunday was the day for poutine. That was the plan anyway. We left at 11AM with the intent to go to the Flying Pig in Yaletown for a pulled pork poutine. Little did we know they only serve brunch on Sunday, and it would have been a 45 minute wait... But we passed a couple cute things on the way there! This little dress maker's shop, Victorian style! A boxcar on Hamilton St when you enter Yaletown (by the park) Like I said, we made it to the Flying Pig (that has THE most adorable logo) and…
