Poutine in this city is about a dime a dozen these days. Don't get me wrong, our world-famous comfort food is a beautiful thing, and by no means am I bashing it, just sometimes you
want need a little more action on top of all that warm, gooey awesomeness.
The poutine has come a long way since its inception some 50 years ago, and while the core ingredients generally remain the same, there now exists a near infinite amount of variations to what has become one of the trendiest dishes on the planet.
You might have noticed that we here at MTL Blog have a slight (unhealthy) obsession with the popular dish. Don't believe me? Type Poutine in the search bar at the top of this page and you'll see what I mean. The point is, we know and love our poutine, so not a whole lot surprises us anymore in terms of toppings.
Unless of course it's our other favourite comfort food...

Ignore the artery-clogging, heart-attack inducing, literal food-coma causing aspect of it, and admire the stunning glory of the Bacon Mac & Cheese Poutine! All the deliciousness of greasy fries and squishy cheese curds melting under rich, savory gravy, but with the added starchy goodness of creamy macaroni and cheese piled on top for the ultimate flavour overload. Sprinkle on some chives and crispy bacon bits for good measure, and you are officially in total poutine Nirvana.
Best part is, this beautiful behemoth of a poutine is available in Montreal! Either walk on down to Dirty Dogs on Mont-Royal street, or if you don't happen to be fortunate enough to work right next door like we do, order yourself one on Justeat.ca.
