AUTENTIC QUEBEC STYLE POUTINE IN T.O

k I realise that this topic has come up SEVERAL times on this board and yet I've read them all and STILL haven't found a satisfying answer!

I'm from the Ottawa/Montreal way and I've grown up with AUTHENTIC poutine: we're talking fresh cut fries, fresh curds, and thick gravy. I live pretty much in the downtown core of Toronto now and I have to say, I can't find a good poutine to save my life. The gravy is syrupy, the cheese isn't curd style, and basically somewhere between Ottawa and Toronto the recipe for poutine got lost.

KFC: meh it's okay but it's small and overpriced.
NYFries: again, okay, but small and overpriced.
Harvey's: best of the fast-food ones...
Costco: awsome, but I don't have a membership anymore so I can't go in to eat.

Basically I'm looking for a nice, small, clean place somewhere downtown where I can go and enjoy a real poutine. This is the biggest city in Canada- but does it exist?!
