As one of Canada’s most well-known food offerings, poutine is a staple on most local restaurant menus. But although many restaurants offer it, they don’t all create the delicacy of French fries, gravy and cheese curds equally. Lucky for you, I know exactly where to find the best poutine in Mississauga and have compiled my top five choices!
Priding itself on offering only the freshest poutines, Philthy Poutinerie has over 30 flavours of poutine including interesting flavours such as perogie, chicken parm and pizza. Their notorious P.I.G! poutine features bacon, peameal, Italian sausage and pulled pork and like their other poutines, is available in three different sizes. All poutines feature fresh cut fries, real cheese curds and a signature gravy. Gluten free veggie gravy and a wide selection of other menu items are available.
Already a popular chain across Canada, Smoke’s Poutinerie is now expanding into the United States, too. And for good reason! Although limited to only poutine choices, their menu is basically limitless. Plenty of pork, chicken, steak/beef and vegetarian toppings round out their extensive menu and extra toppings are always available.
Easy to miss when driving by, Holy Smokez is an unassuming place that offers some of the best poutine around. What sets them apart from the others is their poutine-making process, which involves triple frying their fries to produce extra crispness. Add their signature pulled pork to enjoy a poutine that’s fresh, hot and amazing. Be sure to top it with the owner’s recommended BBQ sauce!
Burger Legend is a newly opened joint that offers amazing poutines to complement their hamburger offerings. Sure, their traditional poutine of freshly cut fries, authentic Montreal cheese curds and gravy never disappoints, but I suggest you get the maple bacon poutine. The addition of crispy, maple smoked bacon offers out-of-this-world goodness!
A staple in most malls nationwide, New York Fries consistently offers a poutine that doesn’t disappoint. Their signature gravy, real cheese curds and iconic fries create a treat that’s truly satisfying. Feeling adventurous? Choose from non-traditional poutine flavours, including butter chicken and pulled pork. Join the free NYF Fry Society loyalty program to earn rewards towards free menu items.
