Festival de la Poutine Vancouver & Poutine Crawl 2011

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver is known for its abundance of sushi and coffee joints along with cupcake shops, unique diners, and locavore cuisine but the Quebec-classic poutine is bursting onto the scene. A staple at Fritz European Fry House and La Belle Patate, more restaurants are adding the french fry, cheese curd, and gravy-covered combo to their menus. As such, Vancouver is hosting its first Festival de la Poutine next month, presented by Francouver.
