November 30th, 2012: a day that will probably live in infamy.
Smoke’s Poutinerie opened on Robson Street in Vancouver, and our city was never the same.
Also, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn was the No. 1 movie in Canada.
But let’s focus on Smoke’s.
“Poutine” is Quebec slang for “a mess”, and let’s face facts, when you’re cruising downtown for a pile of greasy deliciousness past midnight, you’re usually a bit of a poutine.
Lucky for you, Smoke’s is notorious for its hangover preventing mounds of fries, cheese and gravy goodness, topped with everything from grilled chicken to Italian sausage to bacon. In fact, their menu is so extensive we had to ask Smoke’s founder Ryan Smolkin for some advice on where to start.
Here’s his list of the top 3 poutine dishes that’ll get you hooked on Smoke’s for good.
All poutine dishes include daily hand-cut fries, custom unique seasoning, fresh Quebec cheese curds and their signature rich homemade gravies.
Bacon Cheeseburger Poutine
Prime Ground Beef
Nacho Grande Poutine
Shaved Montreal Smoked Meat
Kosher Dill Pickle Slice
Squeeze of Yellow Mustard
Including these bad boys, Smoke’s has 30 different poutine options, and with late night dining until 4am on Friday and Saturday, your drunk ass will have plenty of time to make a choice.
Smoke’s is opening the doors on Robson Street today, with the Granville Street location (conveniently located next to the Roxy), slated for the next couple weeks.
