The Best Poutine in Toronto

The best poutine in Toronto is our humble take on perhaps the greatest Quebecois invention. However, being outside Quebec borders means we're free to do pretty much whatever we want with this dish that's synonymous with being Canadian, as long as fries, gravy and cheese are involved somehow. 

Here's the best poutine in Toronto.

This little shack pumping out the city's best poutine calls Market 707 home. It's run by a Montrealer who makes his own cheese curds, so you know smoked meat, wiener and brussel sprout poutines are going to taste amazing. There are also lots of halal and vegetarian options.

The late Anthony Bourdain even endorsed this poutine found on West Queen West until the wee hours of the morning. Served in iconic cups, it comes topped with BBQ pork or bacon, or you can go for a vegetarian version. Don't forget to garnish with provided sriracha.
