Leduc Snack Bar

With our friend John from Oregon visiting, a poutine aficionado from out west, we figured we'd try Leduc Snack Bar in Hawkesbury.

The little potato guy is cute and looks like he might even be ready for Christmas with his lights hanging off him.

There's a nice 3-season eating area on the side.

We split a family-sized poutine and shared it. John looks pretty happy to dig in!

And dig in we did. Tons of curds, great gravy and crispy fries.

We all deemed it worthy of a 5 out of 5 curd poutine. Wowza! Well done Leduc's!

Hume Hotel

This review is from my friend Peggi who was recently visiting Nelson, BC and had to have a poutine fix. She was delighted to find it on the menu at Mike's Place Pub, located in the Hume Hotel.

I ordered the poutine and the waitress asked if I'd like the poutine warmed up to melt the curds. I said, "Oh, no, that's heresy!" and she laughed and agreed, but added that some people prefer it that way.

I don't know how you rate your poutine, but I found it a little salty - could just be me. The yam fries were wonderful, crisp on the outside and soft inside, nice and sweet. Curds nice and firm and the gravy pretty good. All in all, a pretty darn good poutine.
