The Jolly Fryer

On our way to the Muskokas over Thanksgiving weekend, Richard and I stopped in Eganville, Ontario at The Jolly Fryer.

We had great hopes for a good poutine.

The seating area looked inviting and the weather was cool but fine for mid-October.

The poutine arrived, not hot enough. The fries were crispy, the gravy cool and the cheese. Gak! Shredded mozzarella and not curds. It automatically lost a full curd on our rating scale.

Overall, we were both underwhelmed and gave it a 3 out of 5 curds. I liked the fries a lot -- really crispy! Richard was less keen on the whole thing.

And that, I guess, will be the end of our outdoor poutine experiences for 2010. Many of the chip stands all over the countryside have now shut down for the season. See ya in the spring, outdoor poutine!

La Roulotte

Thanks Dom, for this fine review!

Hi! My work territory covers all of Quebec and New Brunswick and, as a poutine addict, I've made somewhat of a mission to find the best poutine of the province. I've been living in Montreal now for 15 years and for the first 11 (before my current employment), I've looked to LA ROULOTTE for a great, great, great poutine! Layered and delicious!!!

Since I've been on this hunt, I have yet to find a better poutine than this one. I am very loyal to La Roulotte and always will be! So, if you want a crazy delicious pout, go to La Roulotte; you won't be disappointed!
Also, their hot dog has been voted best in Montreal for some time now, too.
