La Gaspesienne 51 poutine – La Poutine Week 2021

Organizers have stated that this year’s La Poutine Week, which ran from February 1 to 7, was the most successful festival ever. There was a 100% increase in traffic to the La Poutine Week website; there was a 50% increase in the number of restaurant partners from last year; and over 225,000 poutine lovers participated in the week-long celebration of this Quebec-born comfort food staple.

Also, as a result of the increased participation, many thousands of dollars were raised for Anorexia and Bulimia Québec (ANEB), an organization that guarantees free, immediate and specialized help to people with an eating disorder, as well as their loved ones.

The winning poutine dishes from across Canada were decided by the many poutine connoisseurs who casted their votes for their favourite dishes on the festival website.

Representing Montreal, La Belle Tonki won for their Kimcheesy poutine dish, which contains fries, cheese curds, spicy Cheddar sauce called “Spicy Ramen Challenge”, kimchi, homemade sweet and sour sauce and chicken popcorn. For vegetarians, there is a vegetarian version available that has tofu popcorn.

It contains a mini burger with squid ink, snow crab ​and coleslaw, as well as home-made fries, candied leeks, bacon, island ​ scallops, Nordic shrimp, lobster meat, le petit Gaspésien cheese curds and all topped with Migneron cheese sauce.
