At this stage in my life, I can say, with 100% sincerity, that I don't know what could possibly be better in life than a tasty, warm poutine.
1. Decarie Hot Dog's Regular Poutine
Okay, seriously, the poutine at Decarie Hot Dog is a landmark. Get one in your mouth right TF now, and prepare to be seriously amazed.
2. Deli Sokolow's Latke Poutine
Seriously, whoever decided to combine poutine with latkes is a legit genius. This dish is exactly what you need to get over those November blues.
3. Chez Tousignant's Regular Poutine
Chez Tousignant has been making a huge splash for their totally home-made dishes, like their above and beyond amazing cheeseburgers, or their totally tasty pogos. But if you ask me, their poutines are the real standout: fresh cheese, crisp fries, and hearty sauce elevate this dish onto a plane of its own.
4. Jukebox Burgers' Mac & Cheese Poutine
Do I even need to say anything here? Jukebox is known for combining awesome things with poutine (like their poutine burger, or their poutine hot dog). One of their tasitest combos has to be their mac and cheese poutine: creamy, tangy mac and cheese, smothering a bed of crispy potatoes, delicious sauce, and melty cheese curds.

6. Maamm Bolduc's Bourguinonne Poutine
Seriously, Maamm Bolduc has got one incredibly tasty selection of poutines. But their Bourguinonne Poutine is on a level of its own, mainly due to the addition of red wine sauce (!!).

If you love meatballs, then you're going to love Le Ballpark. Located in the Mile Ex, this spot serves up mainly juicy, tasty meatballs. But they've got other dishes too, like their Cheeseburger Poutine, a combination of hamburger, cheese, toppings, and - of course - poutine.
