These 11 Restaurants Serve The Best Poutine in Michigan
Because we’re basically surrounded by Canada from all angles, we’ve adopted a few of its customs. Specifically, we’re talking about poutine, a savory concoction made up of fries, cheese curds, and gravy.
You’ll find this dish on a growing number of Michigan menus, many with interesting twists. Some chefs top theirs with a variety of meat. Some add a fried egg on top. Some are meat-free, meaning the gravy is vegetarian. Others use poutine as an addition to something else (like a burger… yummm). We’ve dug up some of the best spots around the state where you can get your poutine craving satisfied.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Oh man, we’re starving now and planning our next poutine run. Tell us, where are your favorite spots around the Mitten for poutine?
