A poutine operation need not be a full-service, fancy operation. As intended, poutine is best eaten late into a cold night, with several alcoholic drinks in the system. Under those circumstances, Smoke’s Poutinerie, situated on one of Hollywood’s most trafficked throughways, begins to make sense. A small, perfunctory shop with a counter that seats four, Smoke’s is a sizable chain based out of Ontario that sells huge servings of very good poutine. The crisp fries are sold with a wild selection of toppings—bonus points for a swath of deep-Canadian styles, including a few topped with smoked meat. Though they are the world’s largest poutine chain, each location offers something catering to local tastes. Our local Smoke’s offers a Korean-style poutine, with bulgogi and kimchi atop the gravy and curds.

Smoke's is a great poutinerie located right in the middle of Hollywood. It is a great place to grab poutine to go (there is not a lot of seating). The ingredients are fresh and there are tons of options. It's fun to have a restaurant all about poutine. They usually do something fun for Canada Day so be sure to check it out at the beginning of July.


A poutine place situated close to a ton of bars -- obviously a great idea. Although this place is nothing fancy or out of this world, it will give you just what you expect - delicious poutine...and a wide variety/many styles of it. There isn't much seating, but if you're heading home after a few drinks and feeling hungry, poutine from here will surely hit the spot.
