If you have only one poutine in Montreal, this should be it. This tiny diner (seats 12-14, all told) has wonderful character, and if you aren't in a poutine way, try the tofu burger, or regular burger for that matter. The classic poutine (one size: $4.00) is such a richly flavorful dish that you should not skip it. The fresh-cut fries, if a bit limp. have that dank musk of a well-thought out potato, and you will love them. The curds were perfectly fresh -- not over-humidified like those stored for weeks in a bag, but just wonderful. And the poutine sauce, well, it is unmatched for its deep, velvety flavor, as you can tell from its first bite.
