1. Smoke’s Poutinerie
Smoke’s Poutinerie (simply referred to as Smoke’s by locals) is a Canada-wide operation that doles out some of the most satisfying spin-offs of Canada’s favourite traditional dish. More of a grab-and-go kind of spot than a sit-down eatery, Smoke’s focuses only on poutine with a variety of topping combinations seldom found at a typical club or bistro. Adventurous eaters will be impressed by the nacho, cheeseburger and pierogi options (think of them as two meals in one) while traditionalists will opt for the Hogtown, the Toronto-specific poutine that goes by the city’s nickname and features mushrooms, onions, Italian sausage and double-smoked bacon.
