Smoke's Poutinerie, just as Canadian as Stompin' Tom, double doubles, toques, polar bears, butter tarts, and hockey. Eating at Smoke's is a rite of passage for anyone who identifies as a true Canadian.
Traditional Veggie Poutine. This poutine tastes just like regular poutine; the vegetarian gravy's texture/taste is no different from the regular gravy. The fries are crispy, the gravy is smooth, and the cheese curds are slightly chewy. The poutine is a little sweet and salty, just the way it should be.
Nacho Grande Poutine. Mexican ingredients such as salsa, guacamole, jalapeño peppers, sour cream, and chili worked well together to give the poutine a quesadilla/nacho-esque flavour. Even with all the sauce, the fries maintained their crispy texture.
Triple Pork Poutine. Pulled pork, bacon, and sausages. The sweetness of the pulled pork, the saltiness of the bacon, along with the slight spiciness of the sausages worked well to neutralize and balance each others' flavours. Though I expected this dish to be too salty, to my surprise, it wasn't.
Steak Stroganoff Poutine. The sourness of the pickles cut through the richness of the sour cream and the mushrooms very nicely. The dish was creamy, well balanced, and delicious.
Country Style Poutine. The dish was a bit salty, even for poutine. There weren't enough mushrooms and peas to balance out the saltiness of the bacon. In addition, this dish didn't have any sauce in it, so the overall texture was quite dry.
