Poutine at Caplansky's

It's true. Zane is making poutine. Not just any poutine mind you, but Caplansky's influenced poutine. Cheddar curds, a downright heavenly smoky, meaty gravy all atop his wonderfully perfect fries. Get it on its own or as part of the combo.

Went today for lunch and it was available, so everyone at the table ordered it. Once it hit the table the previously vehement discussion of politics suddenly evaporated and the sounds of silence ensued. Well, not exactly silence...several mmmms, a couple of ahhhhs and some yelling when one of our party tried to lick their empty bowl clean.

The sandwiches are their usual tastiness. No more lean though, it's regular or fatty now - which seems just fine to me. The coleslaw keeps improving, and displays some subtle changes every time I have it.

I've noticed in some other postings that the menu at Caplansky's isn't like other Montreal style smoked meat places and I would add this: It is not a Montreal style smoked meat resto, it's Caplansky's, pure and simple. Nothing more, definitely nothing less.
