Let's be real, the holidays are just an excuse for us to be able to eat an absurd amount of food and not feel guilty about it. Although, once you've inhaled three turkey dinners in a span of 48 hours, food-induced sadness is unavoidable. But hey, the new year hasn't hit just yet and I'm sure you're still nursing a hangover from Boxing Day so let's talk comfort food.
The ultimate kind of comfort food - poutine. I don't know what it is about the combination of cheese and gravy together but man that shit is life changing. Shoutout to Fernand Lachance for making our poutine dreams come true since 1957.
Speaking of making dreams come true, I've put together a list of the best poutine spots in Regina that will take your mouth right to the gates of cheesy heaven. Yeah, you're welcome.
