Possibly the best poutine on the planet, definitely the best I have ever eaten. Fritomania [2442 St Joseph Blvd, Orléans, ON K1C 1E9, Canada] is a little roadside shack that’s been open for over 50 years, right outside the city and well worth the adventure out of the capital.
Service is ultimately friendly and greets with a smile – order at the counter or call in. Potatoes are fried in peanut oil – making them super delicious, gravy is homemade. The food comes out steaming hot in a takeout container, no frills.
Portion sizes are so large, a small will do the job and then some – a real score at under $5. Add-ins such as fried mushrooms, bacon, and chicken enhance the dish – other options include burgers, chicken fingers, sausage, and hot dogs.
Good to know:
+Ample parking in the private lot
+Primarily a takeout place with just a few seats inside
