The Best Poutine in Toronto

The best poutine in Toronto proves that treating golden, crisp French fries as a bed for rich gravy and quality curds is the ultimate move. Whether you stop there or let loose with outlandish toppings — pulled pork, ground beef, ranch dressing or pickled jalapeños — is entirely up to you.

Here's the best poutine in Toronto.


Nom Nom Nom Poutine

Nom Nom Nom Poutine

Part of Dundas West's 707 Market, this tiny takeout spot does one thing gloriously well. Here, la belle province's most outrageously calorific export is topped with jerk chicken, pulled pork, smoked meat — or the relatively restrained combo of velvety gravy and habit-forming curds.

At this St. Clair West chippie, superlative fries are doused with thick gravy and smattered with squeaky curds for poutine that rivals most. Available alone, the team's poutine is also a hard-to-resist upgrade to regular fries to go with your halibut.

With or without a heavy blanket of smoked meat, the poutine at this Scarborough deli is hearty enough to satisfy the most substantial of hungers. Lose yourself in every crisp and savoury, gooey, gravied, cheesy bite — just remember to come up for air.

Beyond numerous smash burgers, this Entertainment District spot excels at dressing fries with a range of tasty bits and bobs. Hand cut potatoes are double-fried, then napped with vegetarian gravy and sprinkled with fresh curds for classic poutine. Order yours Nashville Hot — with popcorn chicken, slaw, pickles and spicy oil — when you're feeling extra.

At this poutinerie, with locations in Chinatown, on King West, and more, there's no limit to how poutine can be dressed. From butter chicken and Buffalo cauli-ranch to perogies, Korean Bbq and popcorn chicken, the chain's culinary mash-ups know no bounds. Purists will also find traditional — veggie or non — poutine, built on fries or tots.

Glistening, golden and ready for its closeup, the poutine at this casual restaurant in Etobicoke is as alluring as the burgers being flipped on the grill. Each of the five varieties — from traditional to bacon and egg — is made with a base of Yukon gold potatoes, house gravy and curds from Quebec.

From burgers to melts, chicken bites, banana pudding and more, there's no shortage of must-try eats at this Little Italy joint. Add waffle fry poutine to the list, and leave no stone unturned.

Simple translates to textbook comfort classics at this Koreatown burger spot. Vegan gravy, springy curd blobs and golden, fresh-cut fries unite in winning poutine. Order it topped with fried chicken tenders if forgoing the burger altogether.
