Best Poutine in Montreal
Poutineville is a Montreal chain and one of the best Poutines in the city. They also have the biggest poutine you’ll find weighing a hefty 15 pounds called the Heart Attack Poutine (topped with everything from chicken, bacon and hot dogs to green peppers, minced beef, mushrooms and homemade gravy).
