Air Canada Poutinerie

OPENED November 03rd, 2017

This pop-up has now closed.

Air Canada Poutinerie is a pop up specialising in poutine, open from 3rd to 11th November in Shoreditch.

In case you’re thinking, ‘pou-what?’, poutine is a dish of chips with cheese curds and gravy that’s hugely popular in Canada and North America.

The Spot:

This is basically a bar with a load of poutine on offer. Hurrah! It’s run by Air Canada (they’re promoting Canadian destinations and there’s a chance to win flights), so expect some aviation-themed decor too.

The Food:

You didn’t think you’d just be eating standard poutine, did you? Following in the footsteps of other single item outlets (Bubbledogs, Hip Chips, The Cereal Killer Cafe), the dish is available with different toppings.

We love the sound of the Vancouver’s Stanley Park Poutine with its pine-salted chips, Burford Brown egg, smoked Cheddar and celery root gravy and the Boston loaded crab with blue cheese crumbles. In fact, we’re just gonna post that whole menu here so you can cast your peepers over it…

 

Toronto the 6ix: Sweet potato fries, maple-soy pork cuts, kimchee, cheese curd, green onion and mayo.

Seattle’s Emerald City Burger Gravy: Fries, peanut-chipotle butter, hamburger gravy, Kraft Cheese, pickled gherkin.

Montreal’s The French: Frites, confit de canard, Comté cheese, cep snow.

Portland’s Vegan Chili Fries: Fries, Szechuan chilli gravy, bean curd, sesame, spring onion.

Miami’s South Beach Pollo: Corn-dusted fries, white cheese, pulled chicken, avocado.

Cancun’s Costa Maya Mole: Sweet potato fries, queso fresco, mole sauce, micro coriander.

Vancouver’s Stanley Park Poutine: Pine-salted chips, Burford Brown egg, smoked cheddar, celery root gravy.

Buenos Aires’ Chimichurri: Potato chips, grilled Provoleta cheese, chimichurri sauce.

Boston’s Loaded Crab: Chips, fresh crab, gouda cream sauce, scallions, blue cheese crumbles.

The Halifax Downstream Poutine: Chips, Canadian lobster, cheese curds, shellfish gravy.

The Drinks:

There’s a selection of root beers, craft beers and Canadian wine to check out. Canadian wine is underrepresented in the UK market so we’re keen to get stuck in. They make some excellent ice wines up there, especially in Niagra, and also some very good full-bodied reds in the Okanagan Valley.

 

The Damage:

Most poutines are £3.50 with the exception of the shellfish options which are £5 (crab) and £7.50 (lobster).

In a Nutshell:

Chips, cheese, gravy… say no more. Actually, there is one more thing: all the proceeds from the pop-up are going to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. That’s right, you are doing your bit for charidee by eating cheesy chips.
