JP's Crispy Chips in Ottawa the BEST POUTINE

food face | Jul 27, 200905:56 PM     4

I can't believe a place like this actually exists. The medium is $7 with tax. over 2 pounds of fatty goodness. As much curds as fries. I never understood the whole "squeeky curd" phenomenon until I ate at JP's Chip Truck in Ottawa. The curds where picked up that morning. Massive and mild. The fries where cooked to order. I requested them not too crispy. I couldn't believe the counter staff didn't get annoyed with my request! He happily obliged and asked how my friend wanted her fries cooked too. The gravy was beef and not too salty....just right. The staff are super sweet and stand behind the product. They insist the owner doesn't skimp on anything. Coming from Toronto where the poutineries measure the curds it was nice to enjoy an abundance of local food and generosity that is not found in most places. Thank you to the good people at Ottawa Foodie. If you are in the Ottawa area...this is a must try.

Please note that the long thing on the fork in the photo is an ACTUAL CURD!!!! It was longer and bigger than the fork and any french fry. Some would say "too much" I say "just enough".
