Devouring the best Poutines in Québec
No matter where you are in the province of Québec, the side street Casse-Croute is the ideal destination to submerge yourself in pure Québécois traditions. Known for making the world’s best poutines – a layered salty concoction of fries, cheese and gravy- casse-croutes are found all over the province. According to a popular saying, the further you are from urban centers, the better the poutine.
