Where to eat gyro poutine in Toronto

As if poutine in its purest form isn't already an indulgence, Toronto has given birth to some pretty tricked-out versions. Among the most over-the-top is this O.G Loaded Poutine ($12.50) from The Original Gyro Grill.

It's not just some snack, but rather an entire meal of meat and potatoes, complete with its own side of tzatziki.

The family-run takeout counter in the Annex builds the dish over a massive pile of golden fries. It's generously dusted in salty feta then doused in a sweet and savoury house gravy before being finished with jalape単os rings, a drizzle a chipotle sauce, and then, a medley of chicken, pork and lamb gyro meats.

If that's too extreme for your tastes, fear not; feta poutine with a choice of just one type of gyro ($7.50-$8.95) is available too. Go with the lamb. It's the priciest of the three, but easily the most succulent.
