A Quebec (or French-Canadian) staple, a dish of homemade french fries topped with white cheddar cheese curds and beef gravy (wannabes and some americans have been known to serve this dish with any cheese and turkey gravy). Generally served in a styrofoam container or carton.

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.
I ate a poutine yesterday, I hope I won't suffer an heart-attack.

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!
The nicest Poutine is Ashton's one.

Here, this is from a Canadian. This is what poutine is.

Take a potatoe. Cut it into thing rods. Deep-fry it. Pour hot turkey gravy, (Yes, turkey, Quebec, the province next to mine, is unsuitable for bovine farming, although there are some pockets here and there,) on the deep-fried potatoe-sticks (fries). Add some white cheddar cheese curds, let the curds melt, or pop a few in your mouth. Eat with a fork.

There you go.

You Americans don't know what you're missing.

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."
