La Poutine is a cozy little spot on the edge of the U of A campus serving up faithful Quebecois poutine, as well as countless variations.
Poutine. It couldn’t be any more Canadian.
La Poutine opened it's doors in May 2011 inside the historic Garneau Theatre Building. After owners Lindsey and Francis had enjoyed poutine all across Canada, they decided to create a restaurant concept to reflect their unique take on the Canadian Classic: authentic, elevated and loaded with quality toppings.
What is Poutine, you ask? Poutine is a dish created in Quebec in the 1950's consisting of fries, cheese curds and piping hot gravy. The word "poutine" is rumoured to mean "hot mess" in old french slang.
At La Poutine, we aim to elevate the traditional 1950's poutine by using fresh, house-made and local ingredients. Each poutine is crafted with love and each component has been carefully sourced:
Fries: Our fries are hand-cut from locally grown russet potatoes and twice fried in canola oil.
Cheese Curds: Our curds are brought in from La Belle Provence, Quebec for that authentic squeak.
Gravy: We offer 3 types of gravy: Traditional gravy, Beef-Style gravy + Gluten-free.
Our petit restaurant has 10 seats inside and 12 outside (Oui! Even in the Winter!) We look forward to welcoming you!
