Aftah coming home from a part-time gig, Da Wife was watching Eat St. on da Cooking Channel and I saw something I nevah heard of, Poutine. Actually I tink I did hear of it but nevah knew wat it was cause it sounds fancy expensive.
Now depends on who you speak to, it's pronounced a few ways but who da heck cares! Da grindz looked ONOLICIOUS! Hea's a little something something from Wikipedia:
Poutine ( /puːˈtiːn/; Quebec French pronunciation : [put͡sɪn]) is a Quebec dish, made with french fries, topped with brown gravy and curd cheese. Sometimes additional ingredients are added.
Let me point out da "additional ingredients".
Once you mention french fries and brown gravy in da same sentence, I'm all in but watching Eat St. and dis one truck vendor, Smoke's Poutinerie (http://smokespoutinerie.com), he had au'kines of ingrediments/toppings - aside from da base of freshly made yukon potato fries - and themed ones as well such as Nachos, Bacon (obviously bacon filled), Hogtown, Beef Peppercorn, Philly Cheesesteak and tons of oddah stuff but once you go beyond da "regular" poutine toppings of just gravy and curd cheese, you no longah one side dish and looking for some kanack action.
Now hea's my question......... Wea da heck can I get one of those in da 808???
I always watch these mainland guys wit their supah-onolicious kine grindz (along wit our mainland readers like ManekiNekko who recently rubbed it in mentioning Johnnie's ) and I'm surah we get someone somewea serving up a specialty. I not talking chicken katsu, hamburgah steak or some "gourmet" plate lunch (adding Nalo greens wit a fancy dressing does NOT make it gourmet - Wassup Wit Dat!), but like something like Poutine's wea da cook does one or two things but does it right!
Anybody know of any restaurant, hole-in-da-wall, mom & pop or truck vendor around I can check out for maybe - dare I say it - a Grindz Review?
Or you no like share your secret spot?
