Hi all, One of the popular dishes where I live is called a poutine. It is a fast food dish made with french fries covered in cheese, usually cheese curds, with gravy poured on top. It is delicious!! There are also many ways to make it; you could add meat, veggies, or change the sauce. I was telling one of my friends about it, he lives in England where they don't have poutine, and he said he wouldn't eat it because it sounds gross. I have been eating this since I was young, so I never looked at it like that. Do you think this is gross? Have you tried pouutine? And if you know what I am talking about what is the best poutine you have ever eaten? My favourite was made my an old boss at a restaurant I worked at. He would fry up some mushrooms and spice them up and then add them to the poutine.

I think we have a version of it here in Malaysia at the KFC restaurants. We called it cheese wedges. It's fried potato wedges smothered with cream cheese. It's so delicious. I can just eat those for lunch and nothing else. I think the cheese is what makes it so delicious and scrumptious. This is making me hungry. I should get one of those wedges now.

I think they put a little mayonnaise too. They cannot make it too exotic like your poutine because it will not be popular among Malaysians.

I think I would try that, but I don't think I'd take in that junk food full of calories often. I know it's tempting, but I'd surely regret putting on weight because of that. hehee..

You are definitely right about the calories but its just too yummy to pass up sometimes. That being said, its been quite a while since I have eaten one. Maybe on my lunch break I will go get one!

Hi Ladyhope I've never heard of Poutine but it sounds similar to a dish found at places like TGIF,Applebees, Friendly's , ect... its not a complicated dish any restaurant who has fries and cheese and gravy could make it but I'm sure its called something , at Friendly's they have a dish called Loaded Waffle Fries Its Waffle Fries with cheese sauce ,bacon bits , served with sour cream and chives gravy can be added for extra fat if desired . A lot of people like that particular dish its pretty big and gets lots of cheese on it. I don't think what Poutine is gross if you like it thats all that matters:-)
