If you’re one of those people that never orders poutine because you’re trying to watch what you eat (like me…), this event is the one time of year you should allow yourself to indulge. PoutineFest has all types of poutine that ranges from classic fries with cheese curd smothered in gravy, to fries covered in tacos (delicious!) and even ribs and pad thai!
Billy Bob’s Bloomin’ Onion truck had battered deep fried onions! These looked amazing! A whole onion made into a giant onion ring, basically! But we were on a mission for Poutine so we never indulged in this deliciousness, which I now regret as I’m writing this blog post. Guess I got to make my way down to Fort Erie…
The Upper Deck is a new Food Truck in town which will be located in Orleans on Innes Road. The upper portion of the bus is air conditioned and patrons will be able to eat up there during the summer! How cool is that??
What the Truck: Pizza and Panini were also there, offering up delicious food.
Pong’s Poutine Food Truck from Carp was also on the scene offering up classic and speciality poutines as well as Thai chicken curry, bacon cheeseburgers and chili.
Vanier Snack Shack was offering classic poutine along with a meat and veggie poutine.
The Twisted Tomato is a Ketchup Company offering over half a dozen flavours of their premier ketchup, which patrons got to try out on their poutine.
Green Papaya had 4-5 different kinds of poutine. The bottom rectangle on the following day had the special of the day. I want to say it was a thai chicken dish, but cannot recall it’s actual name.
Routine Poutine is a mainstay over on the Gatineau side and offers classic poutine. They won first place last PoutineFest and second place this time around.
Mr. Churritos even offered a Churro Poutine! Mmm, dessert poutine with marshmallows! (sorry, no picture.)
Le Smoking BBQ from Montreal had a Ribs Poutine! It was so hard not to order and we might be regretting it…
Golden Fries was also there. One of Ottawa’s local food trucks located in Orleans at the Convent Glen Shopping Centre. They offered a lobster bacon poutine! Craziness!
Big D’s is an Ottawa Food Truck out on Hazeldean Road that I’ve been trying to get to! I’m making it my mission this summer! They offer gourmet hot dogs and poutines!
Bonita’s Cantina, (another food truck that I’ve been trying to get to for the past year) was there offering up Porktine, Tacotine and a Fries Supreme!
Known for their tacos, I of course ordered their Tacotine! Amazing! I can’t wait to go check out their actual menu at City Centre this summer! My friend ordered the Porktine, and she said it was also delicious! (The picture unfortunately didn’t turn out)
I remember Tiny Tom Donuts from when I was a kid frequenting Wonderland! A dozen mini donuts for around $5. They have 4 flavours: Icing sugar, Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon and Cinnamon.
Until next time Poutine… until next time…
