Why locals love it?

There’s nothing more “Montreal” than ending a night of partying with a poutine from La Banquise – even Anthony Bourdain recommends it. Open 24/7, it is where you go to satisfy your post-party munchies. The combination of hot fries oozing with gravy and cheese curds – and whatever else your heart (read: stomach) desires – is what you will find.

Why you should visit it

Serving up 30 varieties of the local dish, this joint has been a Montreal favourite for 45 years. Patrons are immediately greeted with the aroma of greasy food accompanied by a long line of inebriated partiers as they walk in and staff is as animated as food and decor. Crazy combos range from hot peppers & Tabasco, to feta cheese, and guacamole.

Special tip

For the ultimate gluttonous experience, order the T-Rex (poutine topped with ground beef, pepperoni, bacon, and hot dogs).

This is a famous place, but expect to wait outside just to eat a poutine...there's always line up. I don't like line up, so I don't go there. Even during the nigth there's line up.
