Best poutine in Manitoba?

Hey everyone, new user here.

I lived in Quebec for a few months last year, all my life I thought poutine was a heart attack waiting to happen, but after months of telling friends "no" to poutine, I finally tried one.. and fell in love with it.

However, coming back to Manitoba, I just can't seem to find a good poutine, I've asked many many people, gotten so many different responses, but nothing ever turns out good. Five people think that A&W's poutine is the best thing in the universe.. when it's not, then another recommends me a run down diner poutine (usually those are the best places).. but nope.. they use shredded cheese!

Basically what I'm looking for is a GOOD/Great poutine in Manitoba, I live in Brandon but I go to Winnipeg once in a while. Does a good poutine exist? I shouldn't settle to second best, none of us should! I'm looking for a poutine that uses squeaky cheese curds first of all, preferably fresh cut fries but that's not important for me, and for gravy I'd prefer something that doesn't taste like soup (like A&W and Burger King's poutines). Any recommendations?

Right now.. I think New York Fries has the best in this province.. and it's not even a good poutine.
