I first came across Montreal Poutine at the Saratoga Race Track this summer. I wandered by several times, allured by the smell of the fresh-cut french fries. I did not give way to temptation this summer though. I figured my trips to the track were expensive enough without me having to buy french fries.
Tonight, I dropped my girlfriend off at Crossgates and I noticed a Montreal Poutine in the food court area.
Business appeared to be booming. I had to try it. I did not have the poutine, however. I had a smoked meat sandwich, which cost around $6.00. That is a pretty good deal for the mall.
I have not had smoked meat in awhile, so I do not have anything to compare it to. It was a very good sandwich though. Very fatty, but very good. The meat was so soft, tender and flavorful. It tasted exactly like corned beef, but a little moister.
It is not something I can eat every day, but once in a while, I would like to stop over at Montreal Poutine for something different. Maybe next time, I will even try the french fries. They have sweet potato fries too, which is a healthier alternative. I give Montreal Poutine a thumbs up!
