Poutine week is an annual event that challenges restaurants to create the best poutine they can. We've already seen some pretty original ones, like Shawarmaz's "Magic Poutine" and Dirty Dog's "Chik’N MacWaffle," a glorious monstrosity that puts mac 'n' cheese and chicken-and-waffle on top of a poutine.
There's another entry that's caught our eye, and we just had to share — introducing La Belle Tonkinoise's "Poutine Ðặc Biệt."
TL;DR Starting today, February 1, until February 8, you can get this creative vietnamese poutine at La Belle Tonkinoise. Check it out!
La Belle Tonkinoise is a Vietnamese restaurant that is well-known for their comforting dishes, like pho and spring rolls. They are competing in Poutine Week for the second year, submitting a new, creative dish.
Their take on poutine is available starting today, and it will be available until Poutine Week ends on February 8, 2019.
The creative dish consists of the traditional fries and cheese curds as a base. Then, La Belle Tonkinoise adds pho-flavoured braised beef, vacuum-cooked beef flank, homemade beef meatballs, and pepper-flavoured beef carpaccio.
The whole thing is then topped off with pho-inspired gravy, spicy sauce, hoisin sauce, and herbs.

It looks SO GOOD. Our only complaint is that the poutine isn't bigger! I could eat three of those bowls.
You can find La Belle Tonkinoise on 1380 Jean-Talon Est, Montreal. Hurry! The dish is available for one week only.
