Poutine in Orange County?

Any updated leads on finding poutine in Orange County?

Poutine is basically a mound of thick fries, doused with a gravy and topped with cheese curds (which should melt from the heat of the gravy and fries).

  1. That's French Canadian, isn't it? I'm not even sure you're going to find a place on the West Coast that has it. Hopefully I'm wrong...

    1. Don't know about OC, but there's the Canadian Cafe in Monrovia. I recall they have poutine, but have never tried it personally.

        It's good - heart attack on a plate, but good! And vegetarian!! Last time I was in there I had a discussion with one of the people about it - there are no meat products in the gravy!

      2. I stand corrected. Thank you, Prof. Their website says: "We are the Poutine and Real Canadian Bacon Capitol of California." How's that for ya?

        1. Definitely not OC but Silver Lake has Dusty's. The owner hails from Montreal and offers poutine along with a number of other specialties, including the croque monsieur and madame. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

          1. Unless it has closed, how about Cafe Casse Croute in Anaheim on Brookhurst between Ball and Lincoln? We've never been (the gravitic pull of Kareem's fatteh is irrisistable) but they are supposed to be Canadian.

              I love Cafe Casse Croute and have been there on a number of occasions but they do not have poutine. I know the Frysmith food truck sometimes has poutine, they occasionally make it out to Orange County I think.
