Canadian dish that has spread in popularity to the Northeastern states. Traditionally it was fried potatoes covered in turkey gravy and sprinkled with the skimmed cheese curds. Modern interpretations are:

Beef gravy and mozzarella cheese, called Hobo Fries in the MD/DC/NOVA region.

Chicken gravy and mozzarella cheese, called Disco Fries in the NJ/NY/PA region - often considered the true new form considering NJ has more diners that any other state and this is where the dish is normally available.
"Welcome to Quebec - would you like to try some poutine today eh? It should be right oot."

"Ugh, I was so trashed last night I couldnt even find my way back to the metro and I wandered around Adams Morgan for like 40 minutes. Thank God I made it back to College Park, because now we can go to Platos and have hobo fries."

"Yo, I got so fucking fucked up last night. I just barely caught the Path back to NJT and got home to New Brunzz. Lets peace over to the diner for some fucking disco fries."

Mix of French Fries, Cheddar Cheese, and Brown Gravy. Do not use Hot Chicken Sauce.

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!

One of the un-missable features of Quebec is poutine. This wonderful meal is basically made of fries, cheese, and gravy. The perfect poutine is one that contains fresh cheese with hot sauce that can melt it, and crispy fries. It would also be nice to have some bacon too. There are many variants of poutine, including but not limited to :

"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 term which origins can be found in French Canada (specifically Quebec). The original meaning is fries smothered with cheese curds and gravy. We in Ontario, Canada have re-apprehended this French Canadian word, to be a spin on "pussy," which is also slang for a vagina. So taste that!

Pronunciation: Peut-zhyn (never P00-teen -that would be the poor excuse for real Poutine, often served in Ontario)

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.
I went to the fromagerie (cheese factory) for lunch and had a great poutine. The cheese was so fresh that it squeaked!
