Yeh, I caught one once. No, that's a fib. My line got tangled with friend's line, she's the one who caught the dogfish.
I've never had poutine, not having been in the poutine area for more that a few days a long time ago.
So, from afar - it would depend on the fries, which I assume can vary re the potatoes and the process. And the gravy (I suppose there is a routine recipe but what do I know). And the cheese (what are cheese curls? if they are cheese curds, depends on the milk). How fresh and hot it is, or stale, as the case may be.
Of course I'd love to try it.
It sounds like a head rester, sort of like perfect mashed potatoes.
Meat? what meat? that doesn't sound right.
