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).

There are so many choices of poutine. Ambiance is nice and during summer you can eat at the terrace outside. The restaurant is 24/7 so if you go out late in the night , you can find food during the night !
