The Best Poutine in Toronto
The best poutine in Toronto is our humble take on the great Quebecois melange of fries with gravy and cheese. However, being outside of Quebec borders means we can put our own twist on this quintessentially Canadian dish.
Here's the best poutine in Toronto.
Market 707’s resident poutinerie has been making killer cheese curds for years. Owner Marc Perraut uses onion-based gravy from Quebec and cheddar cheese curds. Those crispy fries are truly the perfect vehicle for toppings like Schwartz's deli smoked meat, Brussel's sprouts and hot dog slices.
Look out for the bright red plaid signage and the bespectacled face of founder Ryan Smolkin and you've found a Smoke's franchise. Numerous locations across the city serve the same chicken-based gravy (the secret's in the spices) and eclectic toppings like Butter Chicken and Canadian Pizza.
This general store-style pit stop in Leslieville serves up extra crispy hand cut fries loaded with darky gravy, made with the jus from their smoker, and white Ontario cheese curds. Beef brisket, applewood-smoked pulled pork—smoked meat is kind of their thing so you'd be remiss not to get some on your fries.
Believe it or not, this poutinerie at Dufferin and Wilson makes normal-coloured poutine and it's pretty damn good. Their Unicorn Poutine (which looks like a rainbow exploded over fries) may not suit everyone but regular orders include Quebec curds and gravy with drool-worthy toppings like Mac & Cheese or chicken shawarma.
