All you can eat poutine coming to Toronto

Posted by Staff / July 3, 2014

poutineville torontoGet ready for all the poutine you can handle. Poutineville, a Montreal-based poutine chain specializing in all things poutine has announced it will be opening its first Toronto location in the Annex later this summer.

In addition to outrageous menu items like poutine grilled cheese sandwiches, poutine gyros and steak poutine, Poutinville is know for something called their AYCE poutine promotions where you can gorge on a selection of their signature poutine dishes for a flat rate of $15. In other words, get ready to stage your very own poutine eating challenge.

Will Toronto Health Services require release forms, an AED on the premises, and maybe a public health nurse with some lipitor?

Poutine grilled cheese sandwich? If the store were a person, I'd want to marry it.

I can finish one poutine.

My 14-21 year old self would have attempted more.

Sadly can't do that anymore. *sigh* Damn you time!

You need to lighten up.
Smells fishy / July 3, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Ok. I don't believe all these people apparently crapping their pants in excitement over yet another poutine place (or, as is usually archly pointed out to us, pronounced a rather lisping 'pootzzzinnn" in Montreal). I am suspecting it is one person making up a dozen screaming fanzine replies. It's a pile of hot steaming grease and potatoes.
4TheWin replying to a comment from lovely. / July 3, 2014 at 02:24 pm
@lovely + Has anybody told you lately how sad you are?

BTW - Poutine is Canadian. If you don't like it, don't eat there. Problem solved. It really is that easy!
lovely. replying to a comment from 4TheWin / July 3, 2014 at 02:30 pm
Eat it all you want, champ.

Doesn't change the fact its the exact same thing we belittle Americans about.
Big Cat / July 3, 2014 at 02:50 pm
Can anyone even finish a Large order from Smokes Poutinerie for a price less then $11? Fatass's everywhere
PoutineFanatic / July 3, 2014 at 03:22 pm
I am so excited & happy that I might just cry!!! Poutineville has the most amazing Poutine. I'd go to Montreal just for their Poutine! Knocks Smokes outta the water!

Michael T / July 3, 2014 at 03:41 pm
All you can eat poutine? That's really dumb. They should just offer a single box like all of the other places. You can get 2 boxes if you're really hungry or if you are bringing a date. I don't believe anyone in Ontario will get an All You Can Eat Poutine because we aren't French, they're the ones who wanted to separate from Canada, not us.

Warren / July 3, 2014 at 04:05 pm
I'm not sure how the A.Y.C.E works but if i could spend $15 to fill up on at least 6 small portions/distinct varieties then it would be worth the extra couple dollars instead of gorging on a large monotonous portion from elsewhere.
Çhillâx / July 3, 2014 at 04:18 pm
Péople péople, thîs îs äctüally a Montrëal chain õpening here with a regular Poutine menu.

Nõ one forces yòu to get the all yòu can eat promotion. In the Montrëal lôcations its only on Tuesday nights ãftêr 5pm.
Ivy replying to a comment from Tam terrific / July 3, 2014 at 06:58 pm
Maybe you can just put a bit of each flavour. It's not like you need an entire serving - do you not know how buffets work? Also, they seem to have other things besides just poutine.
N / July 3, 2014 at 07:17 pm
Its about a Montrealer who moved to Toronto last year and I have had nothing but disappointment each time I have a poutine here....maybe Toronto will finally have real poutine...I cant wait!

i agree.

ugh. gross.

i think these AYCE places are nasty. encouraging binge eating ...
Darkside denizen / July 3, 2014 at 09:51 pm
You don't have to be French to eat and enjoy poutine....or better yet all you can eat poutine! And Ryan's comment made my week. Lol
AJ Corrigan / July 3, 2014 at 10:27 pm
They think that they will be profiting from this, but with people like me living in the GTA they will not. I will bankrupt this place.
Steve / July 3, 2014 at 11:44 pm
I'm American & I would give my left arm to have a Poutine all you could eat place over here. To all the haters of Poutine, go kill yourselves!!

Anyone else out there from Poutineville who has not yet checked in yet to do a bit of cheerleading for yourselves?

Michelle Lu replying to a comment from MrsP / July 4, 2014 at 07:39 am
... I disagree.
I acknowledge the fact that poutine is unhealthy but I don't think that AYCE is really encouraging anything. Whether you like it or not, but poutine is still one of Canada's signature foods and not everyone agrees that poutines are nasty. (Honestly? They are like the best thing ever in my opinion. As long as you eat it in moderation) I dont know much about the AYCE but i think if they didn't allow a business to expand (are rhey even allowed to do that?) it would cause more protests than not. Besides the article never even mentions AYCE. The deciosn to binge on food is a personal decision. AYCE doesn't decide for them.,
ChrisM replying to a comment from Michael T / July 4, 2014 at 09:08 am
Hey idiot, you obviously didn't think things through if you think people won't purchase an All You Can Eat Poutine. It's $15 for free poutine for the rest of your life. That's why they call it "ALL" you can "EAT". This will put all of the other poutine places and even most restaurants out of business. Go back to business school and re-learn the part about Business!!
Lightenup! / July 4, 2014 at 09:43 am
Everyone needs to take a deep breath! For the love of god who gives a rats ass if people want to eat here or if they are excited about a poutine place clearly there are deeper issues if you find it necessary to bash people over food! The negativity and comments are ridiculous honestly because YOU don't enjoy something doesn't mean others should conform to what you believe. Eat away people you know why cuz IT'S YOUR CHOICE friggin people
Nina replying to a comment from Lightenup! / July 4, 2014 at 10:06 am
Lightenup! you are definitely a Quebecois separatist that Michael T mentioned in his meticulously crafted comment. LOL!

I'll be ordering AYCE the very first time I'm in there. Best way to sample across the menu. I won't be able to eat enough to impress anyone but i'll damn sure be trying my best.
Brighten Up / July 4, 2014 at 11:36 am
Apparently all of Toronto is thrilled to the core with all-you-can-eat poutine and will be lined up at the door every day. However, all the orchestrated and industrious cheerleading in the world is not going to convince me to eat a sloppy, steaming plate of fries/gravy/cheese.

Sorry for not buying the hype.

AceOfSpades / July 4, 2014 at 12:00 pm
"Poutinville is know" SMH.

Rob K replying to a comment from Michael T / July 4, 2014 at 03:25 pm
I don't get it, so will this place be serving poutine only to those from Montreal who are in favour of separating from Canada?

I guess what I am trying to say is, does this place serve poutine?
Krazr replying to a comment from ChrisM / July 4, 2014 at 03:37 pm
Wow how dense are you? The $15 price tag for AYCE doesn't entitle the customer to an entire LIFETIME of poutine. On the contrary, the transaction will only allow the individual to consume as much poutine as they can in one single visit. You're probably the same guy who I always see lining his pockets with mashed potatoes at the American buffet. Please employ common sense before littering the BlogTO's comment fields with such sheer and utter unintelligible nonsense.
Michael T replying to a comment from Rob K / July 4, 2014 at 04:08 pm
Yes Rob this place is will be selling poutine. Hence "poutine" is in "ALL YOU CAN EAT POUTINE" therefore that is why they will be offering poutine either in a single box or in an all you can eat poutine type option. So essentially you can either just purchase straight up, or in multiples of boxes (Think 2, 3, 4 or even 5). OR you can go the dangerous route and get the All you can eat poutine poutine. With this method you will pay the clerk $15 and then you will get poutine anytime you want! you can even stop in next Thursday after the bar and you'll get poutine because your name will be on the list of the people that paid $15 for all you can eat poutine.
Rob K replying to a comment from Michael T / July 4, 2014 at 04:19 pm
Ok great, I was just cautious because one time a restaurant put chicken in their name, and let me tell you, they were not serving chicken.

Wow y'all are messed in the head.
Becca replying to a comment from lovely. / July 4, 2014 at 07:59 pm
Ummm...I'm not sure where that comment comes from because we in the USA don't generally douse our fries in gravy (ugh!) and we don't eat cheese curds (I think that's what those are called). We DO have unhealthy food...but you can't blame us for THIS! ;)
GiveMeThePoutineNow / July 4, 2014 at 11:16 pm
Ok seriously, whats with all the negativity? Some of you should read the Star's write up about this place- its going to be an upscale sit-down poutinery (aka- not boxes) and the all you can eat feature is a tapas style selection of some of their best sellers. All that to say I WANT IN!!
FlamingSquirrel / July 5, 2014 at 06:05 am
I'm from Montreal. You guys are gonna love this place; the all you can eat is basically mini bowls of their various poutines. They have a standard menu of poutines and a "Build your own" checklist thing you can use. One of the few places that you can leave saying that the meal was "painfully delicious". YES, I'm a fan. NO, I don't work there- if I did, I'd be dead by now.
Moderation / July 5, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Why are people complaining about this?! It's called moderation, fucking enjoy it! Eat delicious food then go to the gym. I make fun of Americans because ALL their good choices are like this, and overall they are unfit. Life is about pleasure, live it.
Bill Best replying to a comment from Big Cat / July 5, 2014 at 03:30 pm
That's exactly what I was going to say. I suppose the benefit to an AYCE would be trying a variety.
Steveration / July 5, 2014 at 04:43 pm
Will I be able to get just regular fries without anything fancy?
say wot? / July 6, 2014 at 01:38 am
What do you think, Steve? I mean really. What do you think? Go in, and order a large poutine. Tell them to hold the gravy. Then tell them to hold the cheese. Voila. You have your regular fries.

Now, just shoot me.
Steverator replying to a comment from say wot? / July 6, 2014 at 04:55 pm
No that didn't answer my question, I don't want to order a large poutine. I'm simply wondering if they have traditional fries on the menu. No gravy. No cheese. Sheesh.
say wot? / July 7, 2014 at 12:51 am
I would imagine that yes, they must sell french fries on their own; I mean, fries are pretty much the reason the place exists. But why would you go all the way to this place for regular fries?
Steverator replying to a comment from say wot? / July 7, 2014 at 09:13 am
I would only go there for the "all you can eat" fries. Once I've paid my one-time $15 fee, I will be able to stop in whenever (like on my way home from work) and get a box of piping hot regular fries. Since my name will be on the "PAID" wall, they won't charge me as they'll see that I already paid my $15. Voila! Fries for life.
say wot? / July 7, 2014 at 12:23 pm
Yeah, Steve.. go pay $15 for a box of fries and see if you get any the next day. Sure! That is what "all you can eat" means, Steve. Take all your friends, too.

Thanks for some other magnificent article. Where
else could anybody get that type of info in such an ideal manner of writing?

I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the search for such information.
François / September 14, 2014 at 11:12 am
I live in Montreal and love poutine, and I eat it in moderation but yes, once in a while (during Poutine Week for instance) I will exceed a reasonable quantity but we all do for something we like be it chocolate, steak or ice cream. This is good news, maybe we can hope for Toronto to finally have decent smoked meat next!

Males, in particular, should not be consuming soy protein in any
significant amount, let alone twice a day every day as Visalus
advises. If you want to build a considerable business,
you'll have to be able to come up with constant leads.

This can cause a greast deal of stress to many people especially whn the amount they want to borrow
is only relatively small. Unless you are oone of the lujcky few
that are seemingly made of money, these financial problems are
bound to come up once in a while. In an interesting contrast, banks regularly charge fees,
up their rates, and play money games with their customers' money and, yet,
we don't see the news outraged over banks and their practices.
