One of Canada's national treasures in the food department is none other than poutine! We're known for some pretty odd foods from ketchup and all dressed chips to maple syrup cookies and beaver tails but poutine definitely tops the list.
We all love poutine over here because what could be wrong? It's just french fries, cheese curds and gravy! All of those things are good on their own but together they're so much more delicious. Last year Toronto hosted it's first-ever poutine festival to celebrate our favourite food and it was a huge hit so they're officially coming back again this year!
This year's Toronto Poutine Fest will officially be held at Yonge-Dundas Square on May 24th-26th just like last year. It's the perfect way to kick off the warm weather and head into summer because who cares about a summer bod, am I right?
There are tons of great poutine shops on the list of vendors this year including Golden Fries, Le Smoking BBQ, The Lobster Limo, True North Eats, Roost Food Truck and more!
There were some seriously crazy poutines on deck last year and this year won't be any different. You can expect some out of the box poutines like Lobster Bacon Poutine, Pulled Pork and Ribs Poutine, Popcorn Chicken Poutine, Double Cheeseburger Poutine, Hot Dog Poutine, and soooo much more!
Some new showstoppers will include Wickedly Sinful's Apple Pie Poutine, Roost Food Truck's Buffalo Chicken Poutine, Big D's Dog House & Poutine Emporium's Muerte Taco Poutine, and Gaga Pate's Italian Poutine! There will also be live entertainment at the event so you definitely won't be bored.
If you didn't get a chance to make it out last year, now's your chance! Check out their website for more information.
