When I think of La Poutine Week, I see monstrous poutines with crazy ingredients, portions or designs. However it’s not the case at Monsieur Restaurant + Bar. This poutine is without a doubt the prettiest one I’ve seen so far. Crispy chorizo, sautéed wild mushrooms and kale cover the mix of Yukon and sweet potato fries, cheese curds and grated mozzarella. Greens and edible flowers top the whole. The mix of sweet and salty from the fries compliments the spicy taste of the chorizo. The ingredients are local and organic for the conscious foodies. The portion is perfect and the poutine actually feels light. You will be satisfied but not bloated so you can enjoy other things, maybe another poutine or a dessert.
At the cost of $14, it’s worth trying if you enjoy food with local ingredients and love a beautiful plate!
