This is poutine. It's a national favorite, which originated in Quebec. How can you go wrong with french fries loaded with fresh cheese curds (tasting somewhat like mozzarella) and a gravy sauce? We had ours at a little place in Esquimalt called La Belle Patate and it really feels like a little slice of Quebec. - Fern

It is good JoJo! Next time you make it north, you'll have to try it for sure. Thanks.

Oh it figures I move away from Washington and Victoria gets a poutine vendor on the causeway. lol That's OK, It's about an 8 hour drive to the border with Quebec. I see a road trip in my future.

Funnily enough, I was watching a program on TV about Quebec cheeses, and they were mentioning poutine. I remember it from my time in Montreal, 27 years ago.
