Montreal Poutine Resto-Bar

I had been walking all morning through Old Montreal and my watch read 10:30am. It was too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. I was getting hungry, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to eat. I knew that I wanted to try some of the local Canadian dishes. I came upon Montreal Pountine Resto Bar while walking down Rue Saint Paul. The doors were open but when I looked inside it was empty. The waitress who was outside asked me if I wanted to come in and I said “Yes”! She asked if I wanted to be seated inside or outside in the patio and of course I chose to sit outside.

As she led me outside to the patio, I was in awe. It was a charming and quiet place with luscious, colorful plants and flowers that brightened up the outdoor area. There was plenty of seating with wooden tables. Since I was the first one there, it gave me an opportunity to take my time and photograph this quaint and unique hidden gem. Each area of the patio had something lovely.

Since the patio was in the back of the bar and away from the street, it gave it a tranquil and private setting. Little birds playfully flew in and out of the courtyard making the atmosphere more natural.

Montreal Poutine Resto-Bar is a picturesque little joint. Outside spiral stairs lead to a little private dining space on the second floor, where you can enjoy the view, the food and atmosphere. Vines climb up the brick wall enhancing the natural beauty of the area.

As the friendly and courteous waiter approached me and gave me a menu, he asked if I wanted something to drink. I ordered a bottle of water and asked if I could have a few minutes to look at the menu. With a variety of food selection on their menu, I ordered their local dish, Poutine.

They offered different variations of poutine, but I went with the original recipe. This common Canadian dish includes french fries, topped with gravy and cheese curds which melted into the meal as I ate it. It was very flavorful and filling, that it kept me from being hungry for the rest of the day!!

Have you had Poutine or any other local dishes in Montreal? Did you like them?
