This just in from my friend Natalie who was in Quebec City.
Here's her poutine review. Thanks Nat!
We tried out the smoked meat poutine at Talea in Quebec City and it was very delicious! The restaurant decor is lovely, featuring exposed brick, birch trees and other things that make you feel like you're in a comfy ski chalet atmosphere.
The poutine came served in a metal bowl on a wooden board, with a tasty
and healthful side salad.
The "fries" were fat, oven-baked hand-cut morsels of tuberous tenderness. They were blanketed with a yummy gravy, fresh squeaky curds
and ample amounts of authentic smoked meat.
My hubby Gordon would have liked more curds in the mix, so he rated it 4 curds out of 5.
I agreed that the curd ratio could use a slight improvement, but still decided on
4.5 curds out of 5 for this scrumptious concoction. A wonderful dining experience!
