Doesn't this poutine with bacon look tantalizing? It's from a joint called T-Poutine on the Lower East Side in New York City. Thierry Pepin, a fellow from Québec, decided to introduce poutine to New York and opened T-Poutine.

Look at all the varieties of poutine they offer (click image to enlarge). Everything from the classic to steak-covered to one called a Morning Glory that has bacon and egg on a poutine. Wow.

My only issue with T-Poutine is how they suggest it's pronounced. It says here, it's "poo-teen." If Thierry shows up around here and orders a "poo-teen" I'll just cringe. That might be okay in New York but locals here call it "poo-tin" (rhymes with chin). Don't ask for a poo-teen. It's a dead giveaway that you are a tourist.

In the meantime, if anyone goes to T-Poutine and can give it a review, please let me know and leave a comment.

They seriously need to get that pronunciation right! But that poutine looks delicious, cardiac implications aside. OH my, is that a SAUSAGE with that bacon??

Thanks to Knatolee for inspiring me! Being a recent transplant to The Big Apple, I'm keen to try TP, a bit of Canadiana from the Upper North Side!
