    hmmm, that's close enough to me to look through if the one i go to (main street in HB) doesn't have it. trader joe's is usually pretty good at nailing flavors. for me, the gravy has to be just right and the curds have to be slightly chewy. the poutine i had at redondo beach cafe had a thin and transparent brown gravy that looked and tasted like it came from a can and the curds were all soft and lacking much texture. i respect what they do for hockey fans in the area but the food is not something i would go out of my way for.
    i've also had the beef cheek poutine at haven gastropub in orange. the flavors in the gravy were good, but the gravy was too thick and they poured it over super thin shoestring fries which made them all soggy.

    this is what ideal poutine looks like:

    this is intriguing. maybe i should try it.


    i do make poutine myself when i feel like putting the time in. i usually get the curds from whole foods and i think trader joe's has them, too. then i make the fries and the gravy homemade. it's a lot of work and cleanup and not really all that healthy (since it's not worth it to make small portion) so it's probably only a once a year thing for me.

    I had duck poutine at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena last year. It was pretty good, but I wasn't impressed. I think I'll try the real stuff one of these days when I travel to America's Hat (Canada) for a Kings road trip one of these years.

    Default McPoutine goes Canada-wide

    Has anyone eaten at Animal off of Fairfax? I have heard good things about the place, but haven't been to yet. I know they have poutine there as well.

    just bought and had the poutine at trader joe's and it's completely on par with this review (thanks to ianmonsta):
    Trader Joe's Now Sells Poutine, and it's Awesome | Serious Eats

    curds were indeed "squeaky". gravy was a little gelatinous, but had the good flavor and wasn't bad. definitely better than redondo beach cafe. not as good as montreal, but not a bad substitute at all. all the flavors were just right.

    I had the Poutine at the Haven in Orange as well, I think mine had lamb. It was mildly tasty, just too much for a full meal. Should've stuck to their burgers
