What is La Poutine Week?
For its 11th edition, La Poutine Week guarantees poutine offerings that will satiate the most discriminating palates. For two weeks, restaurants in the greater Montreal area will put their signature spin on Québec’s unofficial-official dish in the name of friendly competition. Prizes and bringing rights will be awarded for “People’s Choice” and “Judge’s Choice” among other categories via the La Poutine Week website.
It’s not only Montreal that’s getting in on the squeaky cheesey action. Thousands of restaurants right across Canada are celebrating La Poutine Week as well, from Ottawa/Gatineau, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver, and beyond!
As co-founder Na’eem Adam explains “This year, La Poutine Week is back for two weeks to empower local restaurants and bring communities of poutine enthusiasts together. We are honoured to be organizing our eleventh year of the festival and to have become La Poutine Week Canada’s largest poutine festival every year!”
La Poutine Week is proud to be teaming up with DoorDash again this year. The exclusive delivery partner for all custom poutines connecting consumers with their favourite restaurants!
