Poutine: The Real Deal

Finally went riding last week. It was about freakin time! And after a great, sunny day at Bromont (shout out to Mira for the ticket!), Simon had the good idea to hit Chez Ben (on s'bourre la bédaine) for some fine poutine. Actually, this poutine is straight up fine art.


First, it comes in an alumnium container with cheese on top and at the bottom. This deserves a 10/10 since it's the only way a poutine should ever be served, as it keeps the warmth and melts the cheese perfectly. Sauce hits every single fries, that way you don't get dry potatoes. The cheese squeaks, the sauce is a perfect blend of spicy/sweet and a perfect texture. You don't want some weird, thick gravy on your poutine. The fries are of the classic Quebec cantine type, which is perfect for a poutine. Also note worthy, this is the fastest service you'll ever get. Expect your beautiful lunch served in a matter of seconds, no matter what. McDonald's, please take note.

I know I'm totally biased, but this is THE best poutine. If you're ever visiting the Zoo (other fine Granby attraction) make sure to hit this spot.

Did I have this poutine with you guys before? Like way back when we went outlet shopping? I shed a tear for that poutine.

I really want to comment on this... but as Simon say yesterday. I don't want to be 'shopping for a slap'(said in the best Quebecois french).

C: That was Patate Labelle in Lachute. Really good too. I didn't remember you were there. Remember those hot dogs with bacon and curd cheese? That was out of this world.

Mi: Listen to Simon! haha

How can someone not respect the genius of Chez Ben? Mira and Simon I'm very disappointed in you 2. To think i thought you guys were cool people......Respect Chez Ben

Hey Ben, I'm not asking much but try to remember our best moments shared as crew. I WAS THERE, I WILL ALWAYS BE THERE! Patate Labelle was great, poutine is the food of gods.

I never said I didn't respect.

This poutine was great. Too bad I can't get that around here.
