One of the most obvious reasons to love Canada is Poutine. Originating in Quebec, this comfort food consists of three easy ingredients: french fries ("chips"), cheese curds, and gravy. That's it. Don't ask me why it tastes so good, it just does.
As a popular cultural treat, poutine can be found almost anywhere - including chip wagons alongside the road. Where I am currently vacationing in Westport, Ontario there are numerous chip wagons stationed along roads in the local towns. After passing by a handful of these poutine factories, I finally realized the destiny to which I have been called: to taste and grade each of these chip wagon's poutine.
I accept the challenge.
So, in the coming days I am going to be posting one report per day to determine just which of these local eateries produces the best version of this national delicacy. I will grade each ingredient separately (fries, gravy, cheese); but also grade the arrangement of ingredients; the portion size; the cost; and the all around satisfaction. These factors will amount to a grade based on a 10-pt system.
