Waterworks Food and Bistro

Lucky us! Reviewer Marcia visited Vermont on a poutine discovery trip and found two worthy contenders. These are our first reviews from that state.Thanks for the reviews Marcia!

 Our group decided to split a LAMB AND MUSHROOM POUTINE WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE CURDS as an appetizer at this lovely river-side restaurant in Winooski, Vermont. Of the five participants, I think I was the only one who had any prior experience with poutine, but everyone was game to try it. And, what a great choice! 

The fries were hot, thin and crispy with a hint of garlic, the gravy was (as they always say on the TV Food Network) unctuous, which is a fancy food word for thick, creamy and tasty. The ground lamb was great… but then there were the curds. Cheddar cheese! Poutine aficionados would likely have scoffed at them – no squeak to be heard (and it wasn’t just because the restaurant was extremely noisy)… they just weren’t the squeaking type of curd. But they were delicious… and the whole plate of poutine disappeared before the fries had a chance to get cold.

I would give it 5 out of 5 curds!
