French-Canadian cuisine is hearty, unique, and delicious. If you've never had tortiere on Christmas Eve or sampled brown sugar pie, you've got some good eating ahead of you! Of course, the most popular French-Canadian dish is poutine. Poutine is an indescribably delicious concoction that traditionally contains French fries, cheese curds, and gravy – and this blend of contrasting tastes and textures makes poutine almost irresistible. In recent years, specialty poutine shops have sprung up in larger Canadian centres, offering variations such as chipotle pulled pork, curry beef, or poutine with salsa, jalapenos and sour cream.
While these exotic types of poutine can be interesting, I much prefer more traditional varieties. And the best poutine I've found in my neighbourhood is at my local St. Louis Bar and Grill.
This fun and friendly bar and grill is an all-Canadian owned and operated company that has dozens of franchises throughout Ontario and is moving rapidly into other provinces. The restaurants pride themselves on serving quality food at affordable prices in a comfortable and homey atmosphere. It is a great place to go with co-workers for lunch, a fantastic family restaurant, and a fun destination for friends to gather to watch the game.
