Montrealers... ...Bankley, Peace, Beer, Bobad, etc... ...might enjoy the article in the New Yorker Food Issue by Calvin Trillin on Poutine. Turns out my friend Lily Lanken was roped into the "poutine" search... ...with no idea why she was eating at 16 different poutine places in 4 evenings.

The article also mentions Wilensky's and the Halifax Bud the Spud chip wagon.

Yay! Recognition for this fine cuisine!

I think we love this stuff cuz we have such a great Health Care system. We figure it will save us, no matter what we do. Hope so, anyway!

I hope Lily was in good health before being put through that ordeal.

Poutine, aka "bypass on a plate", is probably one of the unhealthiest concoctions going, well deserving of it's reputation as an agent of early death rivaled only by Cosmos' 2000+ calorie mish-mash.

I used to live around the corner from Wilensky's.. it was a time warp, so much so that a few scenes from 'The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravtiz' were filmed there. They didn't have to change the decor much.
I rememeber once asking for a menu at lunchtime, Moe gave me a dirty look and handed me a 'special'.. 'Nina's' across the street had great blintzes... That's long before that area became trendified.. rent was cheap, so were bagels...and poutine was something that stayed mostly east of the Main... along with 'Pepsi and May West'

Several friends lived the duplex on Clark right next to Wilenskys, for decades, up to just a few years ago. But they were all healthy types who would only eat a "special" on a dare.

My daughter dragged me to Cosmos 2 years ago for a birthday lunch. She eats this stuff & still looks like a model. But for me that one lunch was a lifetime supply, a permanent addition to the spare tire.

there was a poolroom on the Main near St Cath.. down the street from the Rodeo which became the Lodeo cuz it was near Chinatown..
not sure if it was 'Silver Amusements'.. but the steamies were cheap and good...fit the budget of a hungry guitar picker... the back pool hall was dark, smokey and had spitoons... I heard that whole area is being turned into an 'entertainment district', I don't know why.. I found it highly entertaining the way it was...

here's a dime, hold the mustard...

Silver amusements, filled with pinball machines and a few pool tables gave you four or five fat french fries on top of your hot dog, all for 15 cents. Looong ago.

It's not unusual for an investigative reporter to come to a bad end on the job, but I sure hope Calvin Trillin survives the 16-20 servings of poutine.

Poutine is one "folkloric" dish that I have yet to try, and probably never will because it doesn't contain garlic. I will eat just about anything with garlic in it, but a mess of fat and carbs like that just ain't worth the inevitable gastric misery unless it contains a fair whack of the magic bulb.

Speaking as a UK resident who visited Canada once we had it twice, the second time to see if they had done it right.

But talking of funny food - we were given "scrapple" in Pennsylvania. I understand they make it by taking the scrapings off the abbatoit floor and pressing it all together. Typing scrapple into the internet gives you "pork mush". Yep.

Sorry for the thread drift.

A martini was once gin & vermouth with an olive. Now gin OR vodka and anything else can be called a martini of sorts. Even just a glass of gin.

Similarly, the concept of poutine has expanded. Fries, some sort of cheese, & anything (including garlicI suppose) will be termed some-sort-of-poutine.

We all have this guy The Fish Lake Garlic Man to be grateful to. He got me started on growing garlic by supplying the seed stock which he developed over many years of patient devotion to developing and improving a strain that is suited to growing in our region. We are enjoying the fruit of his labour.

Newfie Fries which is fries and gravy and dressing (turkey stuffing).
And, "mumble jumble"is fries, cheese, ground beef, stove top dressing and gravy.

In western PEI, "Fries with the works" is fries with hamberger, peas, and Gravy on top....kind of like a hot hamberger without the bread

Bowser & Blue have a great song called "The Night They Invented Poutine." Despite having grown up in Montreal, and getting back there monthly for almost 30 years, I have yet to bring myself to put poutine in my mouth. I don;t think I ever will.

Bankley, Pepsi and May West was a popular combo all over Montreal in the 1960's when I was a kid, not just east of the Main. I grew up in Ville St. Laurent and a Pepsi and May West was standard fare from the corner store at the 118 bus stop. BTW, it was Pepsi, not Coke, because they were the same price but the Pepsi bottle was bigger in the 1960's.
