I just don’t understand. Why is La Banquise’s poutine so popular? I can name 2 other places right off the bat that serve much better poutine than La Banquise. This is the third time I come to try La Banquise and it hasn’t fascinated me once.
The only reason I can come up with is that it opens 24hrs and one of the first (if not, the first) to come up with more than one type of poutines. Therefore, it has the first mover effect.
The fries are so normal. Totally comparable to La Belle Province. Alright, maybe a grade better, just because it’s not as greasy as La Belle Province. Now, the sauce. So mediocre. The cheese isn’t even squeaky. Boo. and all those fancy toppings do nothing to make it better.
It is NOT the best poutine in Quebec. NO. N-O.
