Montreal's Poutine Week Winner Was Just Announced & It's Not What You'd Expect

The results are in! The winners of La Poutine Week 2021, presented by Saputo and delivered by SkipTheDishes, have officially been announced...

This year's winner, among over 700 participating restaurants across Canada, is none other than Cochonne comme ta MER from La Gaspésienne 51 in Quebec City.

Although the winner isn't from the 514, we're glad to say that the pride and glory of Quebec are staying in la belle province.

Speaking of Montreal, the top dish in the city was the Kimcheesy poutine from La Belle Tonki. Well deserved!

Despite the fact that this was a very... different Poutine Week than we're used to, it was actually the festival's most successful run yet.

Over 225,000 customers "attended" the festival and the team saw over 50% more restaurant partners than the year before.

Most importantly, thousands of dollars were raised toward Anorexia and Bulimia Québec.

Congrats to all participants and to La Poutine Week for making this one of the most memorable ones yet.

In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.

Hockey's holy chalice has had many things in it from beer to a baptized baby but never poutine — at least as far as we can tell!
