Sherman (Sherman’s Food Adventures) was organizing a tasting for Chachi’s at Metrotown and kindly invited me to come along. =)
Chachi’s is a chain restaurant from Calgary and the Metrotown location is their first location in BC. They are located in the food court and the sandwiches are better than expected considering that they’re in the food court! Keep reading to find out which ones were my favourite! Read more
Frenchie’s has a new location on Main and Broadway now and my co workers and I decided to hit it up on Friday. The interior has a bar and lots of interesting paintings. Unfortunately I can’t describe the paint style for you. The menu consists of poutine, sandwiches and Montreal smoked meat sandwiches. Some of the poutines come in either small or medium or large and some only come in medium. There’s a warning on the menu that says they’re not responsible for your addiction to their poutine haha
This was the 6oz Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich and it came with a side of coleslaw. The meat was shaved very thin and wasn’t too salty. Their smoked meat is brought in from Montreal. The coleslaw was very lightly dressed and I think it could’ve used a bit more dressing.
This was the medium sized Smoked Meat Poutine and it was huge!!! Seriously if this is medium, I don’t want to know how big a large is…
This was the small Classic Poutine. Can’t go wrong with the classic! It was also only $6.
This was the Pulled Pork Poutine with lots of tender slow cooked pork on top. The gravy was really good and there were also some onions in here as well as squeaky cheese curds.
Some of their more meat heavy poutine creations (steak poutine, pepperoni poutine, meat lovers poutine) can get expensive but then again they are huge so you get your bang for your buck. Our poutine cravings have been satisfied for quite a while now!
