In a post from February 2007, David wrote, "Chef Bernard Corriveau proudly shows off a plate of poutine. The Quebec native, who now resides in Zapopan, prepared the dish for a group of cooks from the Sanborns restaurant chain. Sanborns locations in Guadalajara will put poutine on the menu this month as part of Canada Week in Jalisco. No word on if Carlos Slim, Latin America's wealthiest man and the owner of Sanborns, signed off on the menu selection."
In David's e-mail he mentions that although he likes poutine, he never really ate it very much when living in Canada. And the poutine in Mexico was just "okay." In David's words, "They really don't know know to make good gravy here and the cheese could have been more gooey."
He's unsure of any places that currently sell poutine in Mexico year-round and suggests that the Quebec government office in Mexico City might have an idea. Does anyone have any knowledge of the current status of our favourite dish in Mexico?
