There are only a few locations where you can get delicious poutine in Florida, and Jacksonville is one of them. Despite being located in a southern city, The Stuffed Beaver has made French Canadian food very popular among its locals. The Stuffed Beaver is a local French Canadian restaurant serving poutine, crepes, smash burger, and much more.
The menu consists of classic Canadian dishes such as lobster rolls, eclair crepes, croque monsieur, all beef wieners, and other variations that will take you on a Montreal food adventure. Also, if you want to experience a real Canadian food tour, visit the casual restaurant on July 1st for their Canada Day Food Celebration.
The celebration will introduce any non-Canadian food connoisseur to traditional fares and street-style Canadian food. According to Caitlin M. Mason, a Facebook user, The Stuffed Beaver has "the best poutine you can get in Jacksonville... it’s 100% authentic Canadian and they have KETCHUP CHIPS!"
On Fridays, the restaurant serves Lobster rolls that keep this local secret spot as a true foodie gem. The Victorian-style building will feel familiar yet modern to any Canadian visiting the restaurant. For those new to poutine, this is a comfort food that consists of French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.
The Jax poutinerie puts a new spin to local food and lends a new cultural experience to those looking for a unique taste. Canadian cuisine is original and this is the place where you can order castor tail with Nutella and sprinkles of crispy bacon.
These are original culinary creations that will transform any Southerner into a Canadian at heart.
