poutine is a classic quebecois dish. la banquise is voted the ‘best poutine’ in town as well as the ‘best selection of poutine’. it opens 24/7 !!! traditional poutine consists of fries, curd cheese, and gravy. not only they offer the traditional poutine that pork belly got, but also 25 different kinds of poutine. i ordered the one with ground beef and green pepers.

very dense, heavy, but surprisingly delicious. mine reminds me of philly cheese steak.
