Thus, I was excited to hear the news that a Smoke's Poutinerie is opening here in London on May 31. When this news broke a few days ago, I immediately entered a poutine trance, obsessed with the idea of gravy and cheese on fried potatoes. So I searched my apartment for anything resembling it.
What I found was: sweet potato fries, cheese, and a whole lobster.
So I cooked up the fries, I grated some cheese, I pried the meat out of the lobster, then I made lobster gravy
I smothered the fries with the gravy, then topped it with cheese and lobster. It looked like this:
I am not ashamed to admit that this was some of the best "poutine" I ever had. It was very rich and filling, though, and I didn't feel like eating for like 24 hours afterward.
Fortunately, my appetite for poutine is back. See you at Smoke's on the Monday.
