Short and savory post!
Yesterday evening, with the most beautiful weather, we decided at the last minute to go to my new best festival EVER: PoutineFest! Oh yeah, you read that right… a festival dedicated to my favorite food, POUTINE!
If you’re in the Ottawa region this weekend, and like poutine, then you have to visit Sparks Street. Right in the heart of Ottawa, food trucks are lined up, waiting for you, and serving all sorts of poutine. Brian picked me up after work and we drove downtown with the boys. As soon as we arrived, we could smell all of that fried food! I’m a cheap date, you know, since I don’t drink, but if you want to make me happy, buy me a poutine!
With so many choices to choose from, it was hard to decide which one to try. Plus the boys were getting hungry, so we went for a food truck with a short line. It turned out to be a really good decision, as it was delicious.
I had deep-fried-curds poutine… I wouldn’t say it was ‘good’, I’d describe it better as saying it was ‘life changing’! OMG. Brian had an onion ring poutine, which looked really good as well, but WTF… ketchup on a poutine? Sometimes I just don’t understand him… oh well.
So we got our poutine from the Golden Fries truck. The boys had some fries, Pogos and donuts. Well, I might have had a few donuts as well!
Next time, I want to go with lots of people who can order all kinds of poutine and share. Here’s some of the type of poutine you can find on Sparks Street this weekend:
-Cinco de Mayo Poutine
-Pad Thai Poutine
-Pulled Pork Poutine
-Bacon Cheeseburger Poutine
-Deep Fried Cauliflower Poutine
-mini donuts and more!
So if you have a bit of free time this weekend, it’s quick and fun. Spring as arrived and finally we can spend some time outside; so why not spending it downtown Ottawa eating a poutine while sitting on the sidewalk (yeah, there’s not many option when it comes to sitting and enjoying your poutine… so we picked an open spot on the sidewalk and ate there). Go have fun and eat an amazing poutine! If you do, let me know which one you had and if it was worth it!
Have a great weekend!
