Where to eat chicken wing poutine in Toronto

If you're of the opinion that Franken-poutine has gone too far or cry sacrilege every time you see a Toronto chef take a little creative license with this dish, then the following is not going to assuage you.

Poutineville in the Annex is a bonafide QuĂŠbĂŠcois-born restaurant - and even they're dishing out poutines that are as obscene as they come. Take the Dragon ($13), for example. It's a poutine that isn't content with simply being just any old mess of fries, curds, and gravy.

This poutine has a traditional base (the essentials are all there in true form), but is amped up with a spicy gravy flecked with chili flakes and topped with a trio of hot wings and hot pepper rings.

It's just one of many outrageous variations at this restaurant, where there's also the option to build your own quirky creation. It's just poutine afterall - have fun with it.
