The Perfect Poutine - 2013

This poutine came from a brew pub in Dunham, QC... It had a pepper sauce and was a bit creamy in texture. The fries we ok, but needed a bit more crisp, the cheese was too cool, thus never married very well with everything else... Overall ok!

This was from the Pataterie in Bedford, QC which I think is one of the best! It could have been better, because it was rather early in the day and the sauce still needed to reduce. The fries are crazy good, the cheese succulent. Still one of my favourite.

P.F. Chang's Bistro Chinois

I have heard a lot of good and bad about P.F.s so I went to check it out myself to see what all the hoopla was about. It was a very beautiful large room with lots of nice vistas, so I was encouraged to begin. The waiter was great explained the menu and the mixing sauces as shown above, but then the wait began... 25 minutes to get a refreshment! But that seemed to unjam everything and the food came quickly... it was good, but lacked a lot of flavor... good thing for the sauces. 
Not authentic Chinese food, but not bad for what you get.
