It’s 2am on a weekend, you’ve just left the bar and you’re a little hungry. We’ve all been there and we’ve all indulged in the classic Quebec comfort food, sinfully good poutine! It comes as no surprise that there’s an entire week dedicated to decadent and versatile dish, and for the 5th year in a row, La Poutine Week is offering different poutines from various restaurants in Montreal, Toronto and across Quebec.
With approximately 50 restaurants taking part in La Poutine Week, from February 1st to February 7th you’ll definitely find a poutine to satisfy your craving. And what’s even better, this year La Poutine Week has teamed up with the food delivery service Foodora to deliver this classic comfort food dish right to your door! All you have to do is download the Foodora app or go on their website and order from one of the participating La Poutine Week restaurants. And if you’re a new Foodora customer, they’re offering 10$ off with the promo code POUTINE on orders of 20$ or more, from select restaurants.
We were lucky enough to try out two different poutines. The first from Le Smoking BBQ had more toppings than fries, and we love lots of toppings! There was plenty of smoked meat, another Montreal classic, as well as smoked pork belly. We loved that the cheese curds were battered and fried, a nice greasy touch!

Since we were ordering from Le Smoking BBQ, we also tried their pork belly sandwich, topped with creamy coleslaw. It was a great combination of salty and smoky pork, cut thick with the right crunch from the coleslaw. And they did not skimp on the amount of pork belly either, a generous three thick-cut slices, if you doubt us, just look at the photo!
Because we’re gluttons, we also tried the Portuguese poutine from Taberna. The chunks of chorizo added some spice and the grilled piri-piri chicken was how all chicken should taste – delicious! And we also loved that there were two cheeses used, the traditional curd cheese and São Jorge cheese, which complimented the spice from the chorizo.

And once again, we didn’t just stop at a poutine, Foodora makes it easy to order plenty of food, and we like to stay in and eat during these frosty months. The Bifana sandwich from Taberna is a Portuguese staple, and we had to have it! The Portuguese bun was fresh and light, with a little crunch to the crust, and thin pork cutlets were lightly fried and topped with a little piri piri sauce. A simple sandwich of minimal ingredients, much like their poutine, and yet, so good.
