Tasting Quebec 

Yes, Montreal has many kinds of restaurants, you just name it… But first.. Poutine! What is a Poutine? Let wiki answer this 😉

Poutine (/pˈtn/Quebec French: [put͡sɪn]) is a Quebecois dish originally made with French fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy.[1] The dish emerged in the late 1950s in the Centre-du-Québec area.[2] For most of its existence, poutine was negatively perceived and mocked,[3] which is in drastic contrast with its later popularity.[1][4][5] In the past, poutine was even used as a means of stigmatization against the Quebec society.[1][3]Today, poutine is celebrated both within and outside Quebec borders. Poutine festivals are held in DrummondvilleMontreal, Quebec City, as well as in Toronto and OttawaChicago and New Hampshire. Poutine is now served using different toppings and ingredients beyond the original French fries, cheese curds, and brown gravy.
