The ancient Greeks probably would have considered calling it ambrosia. Today, we call it poutine. But the folks over at Poutine 66 just call it dinner. The cooks start with fresh, hand-cut fries that they lightly season before topping them with housemade gravy and fresh cheese curds.
But that's just the beginning. From there, Poutine 66 whips up nine variations on the classic. The Morning Star throws a fried egg, bacon, and tomatoes into the mix, and the Hot Shot punishes hubris with a trifecta of spicy sausage, banana peppers, and jalapeños. The Veggie Bliss entices vegetarians with its lemon pepper coconut sauce. The shop even offers a few options that dispense with the gravy altogether. The gluten-free Italiana, for example, subs in marinara sauce and adds seasoned ground beef, green peppers, and caramelized onions.
And at any time, diners can shout "step aside" and create their own poutine concoction from a veritable bumper crop of toppings. Folks can go full carnivore with six different meats, including roast beef and bacon, or go green with everything from peas and cabbage to roasted garlic. Dishes come in four sizes, ranging from the personal snack option to the Monster, which can only be eaten with a silver fork.
