La Kennebec

Over the weekend, my sister and I headed to Alfred, Ontario (known as the French fry capital of Eastern Ontario) to try their poutine. Our first stop was La Kennebec.

Don't you just love the handle on the front door?

They have an extensive menu...

...and lots of specials too. We ordered a small poutine.

They made the fries to order in their busy, clean kitchen.

Fantastic and hot fries! (My sis thought they were just about the best fries she had ever tasted.) Delicious gravy. Only complaint was it was a bit light on the curds. Otherwise, pretty close to a perfect poutine.

We decided on a 4.5 out of a possible 5 curd rating. And it got a bonus eco-curd for being served on a piece of waxed paper on a reusable flat basket and washable cutlery. Well done!

Well of course the french fries were fantastic! Alfred is called the french fry capital of Canada for a good reason. I have enjoyed great fries and poutine there many times. Yum!
