The nation's favorite meal, vegan style.

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.

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

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.

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.

Looking for something to do this weekend that has nothing to do with Valentine's Day? For those of you whose first love is food, La Poutine Week 2022 is here to save you — and there are currently three Montreal poutines on the leaderboard that you'll probably want to try before it's too late.

While the festival is ongoing, which means people are still voting in real-time and the final winners have yet to be secured, it's not surprising that, as of Friday afternoon, the top five poutines in Canada were all based in Quebec.
