It's sort of a war between Drummondville and Victoriaville (small cities of Québec province) to decide who invented it first.
There's some other kind of poutine:
- Regular Poutine - heh
- Italian Poutine - Bolognese Sauce instead of Brown Gravy
- Spicy Poutine - A bit of Tabasco in the Gravy
- Galvaude - Add chunks of chicken and green peas
- Dulton - Add Ground Beef, sometime sausages.
Great hangover remedie, if you can eat it all!
"Après veiller, on va se taper une poutine chez ashton, histoire de noyer l'alcool."
"Italian" poutine : Gravy is replaced by spaggetthi sauce
BBQ poutine : Normal gravy is replaced by BBQ gravy
"All dressed" poutine : It may contain bacon, onions, pepperoni and other ingredients.
A meal originating in the Eastern Townships of Quebec in the mid 20th century. Poutine tastes best when made from hand-cut potato fries, fresh Quebec curd cheese, and barbeque gravy.
Poutine can also be served in other ways:
Italienne: with tomato sauce rather than gravy
Galvaude: by adding green peas and chicken to the regular poutine
And many other variations.
