Poutine is a classically Québecois dish of french fries, gravy and cheese curds. Nope, its not the healthiest dish. Claimed to have been invited just outside of Québec City (the exact place varies), poutine is extremely popular in Québec. So popular that everyone has a favorite, and the Québecois will staunchly defend their favorite poutine. Do not get into an argument over which poutine is best. You will certainly lose. One thing, however, that is generally agreed (at least in Québec City): Québec City poutine > Montréal poutine.
