It is generally accepted that Poutine originated in Canada, and the fact that the word “Poutine” is Quebec slang for ‘a mess’ is a pretty clear indication that it’s true. Although it originally contained cheese curds, we have found some Melbourne restaurants and take-aways that have perfected the vegan poutine. If you are thinking it could never be the same as the original, you need to swallow your pride and try these out, because they may just change your mind.
