This Is The Montreal General Tao Poutine You Will Want To Eat More Than Twice

When Quebec meets Asia things get delicious.
This Is The Montreal General Tao Poutine You Will Want To Eat More Than Twice

Photo cred - L'Gros Luxe

I have often said that the only type of cuisine that cannot be bettered by the addition of cheese is North American-style Chinese food. Now, after seeing the creation of L'Gros Luxe's General Tao Poutine, I am not too proud to say that I was wrong.

A fusion of two iconic comfort foods, the General Tao Poutine is greasy perfection. L'Gros Luxe's signature tater-tot poutine is topped with pieces of deep fried chicken smothered in sweet General Tao sauce, with some green onions added on top for good measure. Aesthetically pleasing (I like how the chicken bits and tater-tots look alike) the dish is also a straight up mouth-gasm. Cheese curds and Chinese food can definitely work together.

Served yesterday as L'Gros Luxe's plate of the day, the General Tao Poutine needs to make a return, or just become a regular menu item. If it does, it could mean bad things for our collective waistlines, because with the double amount of deliciousness that comes with a combo General Tao Chicken and a poutine also brings along double the calories.

Keep up to date with all of L'Gros Luxe's food creations by heading to their Instagram feed and Facebook page here.
