Family Corner Restaurant

A review from Jen in Prescott. Thanks for this great review Jen! I'll have to give this a try!

Last week hubby and I tried out the butter chicken Poutine at the Family Corner Restaurant in Cornwall. French Canadian comfort food meets Indian comfort food. 
The creamy heat of butter chicken on a bed of warm and crisp fries with cheese to ease the heat rounded out the dish.
It was very hard to tell if real curds were used as they were covered with sauce but they were satisfyingly stringy and the whole thing worked quite well. 
We finished the dish and the large was perfect for two people to share. 

I give it four out of five possible curds as I wished the chicken was real roast chicken and I couldn't be certain if real curds were used. Yup, we would do it again!

You should know however that there is no Indian food served on Mondays. The chef's day off.

Montreal Poutine

A review from Alisha who was visiting Montreal. Thanks Alisha!

The poutine was delish. The French fries were fresh cut and fried to crispy perfection...the gravy was okay but not hot enough...the cheese curds were really, really good.

Hmmm...sounds to me like a four out of a possible five curds...losing a point for coolish gravy. But having the poutine as a side to the hot dog was a fab idea! Montreal steamie and a poutine. You can't miss!

Perogie poutine at Beau's Oktoberfest

Oh yeah baby! There we were in Vankleek Hill at Beau's Oktoberfest and with the myriad of food offerings, we HAD TO try the Barley Mow's perogie poutine.

The perogies could have been hotter but the combo of cheesy perogies, curds and gravy really worked well. Adding caramelized onions and bacon? Fabulous! Hard to rate on my curd scale because it's so exotic and hard to compare with a run-of-the-mill poutine but...we gave it a 4 out of 5 possible curds. Maybe a 4.5 because of the addition of extra-crisp bacon.
