Before catching the Deadpool movie (yay Ryan Reynolds!), my friend and I grabbed a quick bite at Mean Poutine. Located on Nelson and Granville, Mean Poutine is just a takeout window and there is no seating available. As their name suggests, they specialize in gourmet poutines as well as gourmet hotdogs.
We went with the Philly Cheesesteak poutine served with brown gravy, certified angus roast beef, grilled onions, peppers and sauteed mushrooms. It was great that there were a lot of veggies included in the poutine but they all looked like they had been sitting around for a while and no where near fresh! They just looked so unappealing and discoloured. Especially the mushrooms! They were canned… and okay I wasn’t a huge mushroom fan to begin with but this was appalling. They were suppose to be “sauteed”! Everything else just seemed meh now and just tasted off. The fries weren’t even that crispy. We both agreed that this was a terrible choice. Maybe we should’ve went with the fried chicken poutine or the southern BBQ… =/ We ended up going next door to MegaBite Pizza after.
Should’ve went back to Frites which is just around the corner!
