Poutine??

Is there any place in L.A. that does Poutine??? This is a signature Quebecois dish.

        Had my first taste of poutine there, it actually was opened by a Canadian ex-pat who owns the building running his main business out of part of the building and decided to open the cafe.

          Who knew how quickly things go away? That link now takes you to a vague sort of shopping site, and a notice that "This domain may be for sale". I'm guessing there is no more poutine to be had in Monrovia...

        2. soleil westwood also has poutine......but only on weekends.

            Just read on eater la that Soleil is expanding their poutine sevice.

            "As of tomorrow French eatery Soleil Westwood launches a new poutine menu. A total of 10 "designer" poutines will grace the menu plus one poutine of the day. There will even be a foie gras poutine... "

              awesome! thanks for the heads up.

                Yes Soleil is AWESOME. They are the refined poutine makers here in LA.
                Frites allumette, savory sauce and mounds of cheese. Delicious. Owner is an Quebecois like me so i encourage the business.

                Animal, love that place, well the food, the place itself irks me a bit. But their "poutine" pissed me off. It should not be called poutine, the gravy is liquid salt with no other taste, the meat was good enough, fries were ok, but the cheese, it's what makes a poutine. Where was it?! Just call it gravy fries with meat and i won't have a problem with it.

                  I am an animal lover but I TOTALLY agree with you GenevieveCa, about the poutine: way overrated and way over salted. I will have to try Soleil.

          2. I think there are some other threads about this. Anyway, I think Dusty's in Silver Lake has it (http://www.dustysbistro.com), but while I haven't tried the stuff anywhere, I have heard good things about the Poutine at Canadian Café.
