Poutine - French fries comfort food



Taken at IN CASA Restaurant, Taichung City, Taiwan

Not your usual French fries but French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown BBQ chicken gravy and sometimes other additional ingredients.

Also known as Poutine, the freshness of the curds is important as it makes them soft in the warm fries, without completely melting. I read that this is a Canadian comfort food, especially but not exclusively in Quebec. Is that true, Canadians there?
