It's not because you don't eat meat and cheese that you can't have poutine.

These 7 restaurants heard our demand and offer the best plant-based version of the dish you could find in Montreal. Like any original poutine, it's all in the quality of the fries, cheese and sauce guys.
1. La Banquise
An institution in Montreal's nightlife, la Banquise needs no presentation. Needless to say that their poutine is as good as their reputation. It's worth the wait, friends.
2. L'Gros Luxe Végé
This place is definitely one of my favorites in Montreal, offering everything a #fatvegan could ever dream of. Their poutine is made with tater tots or regular fries and Vegnature cashew cheese.
3. Lola Rosa
Lola Rose excells at making comfort foods and their poutine is no exception to the rule. They offer a classic yet delicious poutine that satisfies any craving.
4. Copper Branch
Montreal's vegan fast-food chain offers the Canadian classic with a gluten-free sauce and Daiya cheese.
5. Reggies Bar
Drinking alcohol and eating poutine seems to naturally go together and that's why eating your favourite dish directly at the bar is so fantastic. A win for beer-drinking vegans like myself.
6. 57 Cals
You'll have to go to Laval to get that life-changing poutine, but it will be totally worth it, #mouthgasm.
7. Chez Claudette
Offering every poutine combination possible, Chez Claudette also offers 2 vegan poutine sauces. Just ask them to hold the cheese, but you won't even miss it.
