Poutineville’s Heart Attack Poutine is the Queen of all Poutines

poutineville

While every region has its own particularities when it comes to food that could eventually lead you to a heart attack, here in Quebec we’ve got something called “poutine,” and amongst poutines, the Heart Attack from Poutineville is the Queen of all poutines. You see, the Heart Attack is a 15-pound mess of fries, chicken, bacon, wieners, ground beef, ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese curds, and mozzarella, all smothered in a delicious sauce that will make your taste buds scream for more. Behold:

Looks disgusting? Maybe! But it's absolutely delicious, trust me.

Last Saturday, some friends and I went to a new location of Poutineville in Longueuil, on the South Shore of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and met with Eric, the owner, where we had the chance to try the Heart Attack. And even though we were five on the beast, we only ate about three-quarters of it.

But the strength of Poutineville doesn’t only lie in this crazy concoction, but also on the rest of their menu, where they offer poutines such as the Poutineville, featuring braised beef and wine sauce, or the Mouth of Fire, with hot peppers, hot sauce, curd cheese, and spicy chicken wings. They also offer four varieties of fries, of which the “Smashed” fry was the best. This new kind of fry is made from boiled chunks of potatoes, which are later lightly crushed and then deep-fried, maximizing the crunch-to-taste ratio. These are really amazing. They also offer traditional, julienne, and sweet potato fries as well.

All in all, our trip to Poutineville was a fantastic experience: Great food, great service, and great beers to go along with everything. If any of you guys ever come to the region of Montreal, or if you already live there, I highly recommend that you stop at one of three Poutineville locations to try some of their great poutines.

I, myself, will soon go back to have some more refined versions of one of Quebec’s most iconic dishes. Anyone feels like joining me? :)

For those of you who are too far away from us, here’s an article I wrote in 2007 explaining how to make a poutine at home. Try it – you’ll be glad you did.

Edit: Oh, I almost forgot, this week is Montreal’s official Poutine Week. Be sure to head over to poutineweekmtl.com to check out the various restaurants that participate in the event and all the crazy poutine-esque concoctions they came up with in honor of the week.

  1. Starting blogger here, (100beersin100days on blogspot), would love to join you for a poutine! Hit me up! (In Ottawa, but will make the trek for a proper poutine)

  2. That is not poutine. It happens to share three of the same ingredients. Calling this poutine because it contains fries, gravy and cheese is as ridiculous as calling this a bacon cheeseburger because it contains ground beef, bacon, cheese, mushrooms, onions, etc.

  3. It is literally worth the drive from Toronto to Montreal for this. Just make sure you have a designated driver for the way home.

    • You should check your facts. Those Epic Meal Time dorks DID NOT finish their poutine in 20 mins and DID NOT win that competition. In fact, that idiot with the glasses barfed all over the table after 58 mins of the 60 min limit. They were disqualified. Another team had already won.

      Source: I was there and wrote an article about it.

      • Hmmm, why then in the video, they’re showing them finishing the plate and holding the trophy up in the air? Trickery? I checked your post and that muscle glass dude looked like he wasn’t feeling all too well, lol!
