    I'm with you on the pizza thing though...puts me to sleep. Which, come to think of it, isn't a bad way to spend an afternoon.

    I have a bit of a poutine problem. But yeah, I just can't get into pizza for lunch. It's more of an evening food for me.

    I loves me some poutine. If you're ever in Stittsville (and why wouldn't you be, it's clearly awesome), check out the fry truck in the Rona parking lot, and order the large poutine. You will not be disappointed. Well, at least not while you're eating it.

    Check.

    Mid week North End Pizza deal - free poutine with pizza purchase....

    In Morrisburg, you get poutine every day with pizza purchase. True story. North End is definitely on the to-do list.

    Yeah, I'd be a bit leery about "fast food" poutine... have not tried Wendy's...

    The gravy's not great, IMO. I think the best in the fast-food poutine category is A&W.

    Must visit A&W one of these days... it has been a very long time... Swiss Chalet has poutine that isn't too shabby either.

    Best fast-food poutine I ever tasted (which is a small sample size) was a PFK in by the Droval airport (PFK = Polet Frit Kentucky). Can't vouch for any others.

    The worst is probably the Burger King here, in Morgan's Grant. They put salt on their fries (usually too much), then they put salty cheese curds on top, then pour a very salty gravy over it all). I am a bit of a saltaholic, but that was way too much for me.

    Best Poutine bar none is LaBelle Province in Quebec. Curds used - No stinking mozzarella.

    The Wendy's poutine is gross, mostly the gravy, it tastes like some gravy mix + water (probably what it is). I've had Burger King poutine and it's better (even the one at Morgan's Grant since I work there).

    My favorites for poutine in Ottawa are Spud's and TV's fries at Hunt Club & Merivale. I could eat that all day.

    You work at the MGBK? Tell them to use less salt. And if you ever see a guy in a minivan doing the drive through on Monday around 5:30 and ordering 4 King Deal Meals it's probably me (Mondays are crazy nights -- got to get the kids to Barrhaven for 6:30).

    Oh, in that case, please complain more about the salt. If more people speak up maybe they'll listen. Can't beat a $1.99 Whopper on Wednesdays or their coupons -- e.g. McD's "Get One Free" means you have to buy a BigMac with fries and drink and get a second one free; BK you just buy one whopper and the the second one free. While I don't advocate eating two whopperss, it's certainly better on both your wallet and our health to not top it off with fries and a drink.

    I give mozzarella a pass in pizzeria poutine because it's expected. I got pizzeria poutine in Mascouche and it had curds, though. Noice. Easily a pound of curds in a large.

    I love cheese curds. We call it squeaky cheese. So good. Up there with snacking bacon.

    That's exactly what we call it -- squeaky cheese.

    When I was a kid we would stop at St. Albert's on the way to visit family east of there (coming from Ottawa) almost every week. Curds and Fanta Cream Soda. Heaven.
