Montreal poutines you absolutely must try

It doesn’t get much more Quebecois than poutine. Fries, gravy, cheese curds – done right, it’s one of the most delicious, satisfying dishes around. So to make sure you know what good, authentic poutine tastes like, here is the list of the best poutine in Montreal!

Brouhaha Maison Des Brasseurs

1
5860, av de Lorimier, Montréal, QC H2G 2N9

It may not be a restaurant per se, but the poutine at Brouhaha, the brewpub of the Rosemont neighbourhood, deserves to be in this list of hits. Brouhaha's "poutiflette" (a mix of Poutine and Tartiflette) is one of the best poutine dishes in the world!

Restaurant L'Anecdote

2
801, rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2J 2H7

L'Anecdote may be an American-style diner, but its poutine can stand alongside that of its more Quebecois neighbours. In fact, it is probably much better. Try it and see…

Patati Patata

3
4177, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1Y7

Tiny, colourful, and always full of customers, Patati Patata focuses on potatoes. And since the main ingredient – indeed, the critical ingredient – of poutine is the fries, Patati Patata has earned itself a place on this list.

Poutineville

4
1348, rue Beaubien E, Montréal, QC H2G 1K8

Just because Poutineville has several locations doesn’t mean you should turn up your nose at their menu – it is, with no exaggeration, superb. The concept – create your own poutine from a range of ingredients – has what it takes to make your mouth water even before you order.

La Banquise

5
994, rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2J 2J3

La Banquise is (rightfully) on the list of all the tour guides, and most visitors to the city will try it at least once (a wise decision). This establishent’s well-deserved reputation draws legendary line-ups at 3:15 am on summer nights. What more can be said?

Maam Bolduc

6
4351, av de Lorimier, Montréal, QC H2H 2B3

Warm, relaxed, pleasant; the restaurant itself is a great reason to go there. As for poutines go, they know how to do it right. Try the Italian version (spaghetti sauce), the vegan (mushrooms and sweet peppers), the bourguignonne (red wine and ground beef) or the classic “galvaude” (chicken and peas).

Restaurant au Pied De Cochon

7
536, av Duluth E, Montréal, QC H2L 1A9

It's simple: it is the best poutine in the world. The foie gras poutine of Martin Picard includes a wonderful pan-seared lobe of foie gras, fries triple-cooked in duck fat, and a homemade sauce that includes cream. Beware of imitations!

Precipitation and leaves bright with colour – two things that go hand in hand in fall. And rain or snow combined with the return of cooler days can chill to the bone. The solution? Warm soup, of course! Here’s a list of comforting soups to taste this fall in Montreal.
“Bring your own wine” restaurants in Montreal are easy on the wallet. Some also offer fantastic food! That’s why the terrace/bring-your-wine combination may seem hard to beat. Here are restaurants where you can bring your own drinks and eat under the stars!
Whether it’s for a 5 à 7 or for dinner, the residents of Griffintown don’t need to travel far to find a quality restaurant. A bit like it is everywhere in Montreal, this neighbourhood is fortunate to have magical places. People come from every corner of the city to eat here!
