THE 6 BEST POUTINES IN PLATEAU-MONT-ROYAL
The Plateau-Mont-Royal (or quite simply the Plateau) is a great neighborhood to explore, notably for all of its restaurants! It is essentially the gastronomic hub of the city. Many restaurants deserve a spot on this list, but we are presenting here the known institutions of the Plateau, the cream of the crop!
Au Pied de Cochon, 536 Avenue Duluth E, Montreal
Foie gras, more foie gras and even more foie gras! Martin Picard, the chef and owner, has certainly found a way to make our humble poutine noble. Garnished with fried foie gras and a foie gras sauce, you might not want to be counting calories on this one. True amateurs swear by it!
Open since 2001.
La Banquise, 994 Rue Rachel E, Montreal
The one and only Banquise! Open 24 hours a day, this restaurant has charmed all of its clients, from the locals to the tourists. There’s something new and tantalizing for everyone thanks to the large variety of sauces and toppings, choices ranging from classic to vegan options. You will leave satisfied, well satiated and already wanting to come back for more as soon as possible!
Open since 1968.
Rôtisseries Romados, 115 Rue Rachel E, Montreal
There is assuredly nothing better than a poutine recreated with Portuguese sauce! Their open kitchen allows clients to observe the preparation of the roast chicken according to traditional Portuguese traditions. We also love their homemade french fries, they certainly make a difference! In other words, their poutine is the perfect blend of cultures and flavors!
Open since 1994.
Restaurant Chez Claudette, 351 avenue Laurier Est, Montreal
Authenticity and a welcoming atmosphere, that’s what keeps us coming back to Claudette’s! The poutine is cooked according to traditional methods, without pretension and garnished with a classic sauce. It deserves to be the first snack bar you choose if tasting your very first poutine. Open 24 hours, it is the type of place that families can enjoy as well as the most inveterate night owls!
Open since 1982.
Patati Patata, 4177 boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montreal
Here, nothing is ordinary! Not even the front of this colorful restaurant, painted by Étienne
Martin, a local Quebec artist. The french fries gave them their reputation and you must absolutely try their “patatine” poutine. The charm and atmosphere of this little place make it well worth the visit!
Open since 1996!
A NEWBIE ON THE BLOCK!
Mange-moi, 35 avenue du Mont-Royal Est, Montreal
Classic poutine, that’s good, but an original poutine, that’s even better! Discover new flavors with Mange-moi’s creative and unique poutines accompanied by one of their original cocktails. Summer is coming, so go ahead and take one of their poutine’s to-go and enjoy it in the Jeanne-Mance park right next door. But don’t forget to plan another visit, there are many here to taste!
Opened since 2013.
