101 Poutines To Eat In Montreal Before You Die

The true Montrealer bucket list.

Ah, poutine. It's the epitome of Quebec cuisine, and quite arguably should be made the official food of Canada. In Montreal alone there are literally hundreds of different poutines to choose from. Some good, some bad, and some that are just so incredibly delicious that you can't help but devour them instantaneously.

What we have here for you is a list of 101 of those poutines that you absolutely must try before you die. Feel free to turn this into a check list of sorts, but if/when your arteries start to get a little too full from the cheesy goodness, just remember that it's the poutine's way of telling you that it loves you too. Now get out there and start eating.
