No, of course not. This winning combination has been around forever, and there's a reason why it's basically everyone's fave. And although Montreal has tons of great spots to enjoy a delicious poutine, a select few really do that simple, classic combination up right.
This oldschool Sud-Ouest diner is literally everything good in the world. Other than a super welcoming vibe, you can bet that 100% of the time, you'll be noshing on a cheesy, fresh, piping hot, delicious poutine.
Four words, friends: mac and cheese poutine. This spot knows how to do up gooey, straight-up delicious poutines just right, although the crowning jewel in this operation is probably their mac and cheese topped poutine, sprinkled with (of course) chunks of bacon.
A legit Montreal institution at this point, this century old casse-croute has been serving up poutines and happiness forever. The sauce, cheese, and fries combination from this spot is legit irresistable.
Offering a handful of seriously delicious poutines, this spot is known for its high quality and super fresh ingredients. Although all their poutines are awesome, their Bourguignonne poutine is a true standout.
With tons and tons of varities of poutines, plus a super central location in Montreal's Plateau, there's legit nothing better than Chez Claudette. Protip: they're open late most nights, so you can satisfy the crave whenever.
