There are a few spots in Boston where you can try Canada's signature dish, Poutine. Saus has several options, while The Gallows, Deep Ellum, and Bostonia Public House each have one poutine menu item.
In an attempt to inspire global travel on their airline, Air Canada has created pop-up poutine spots based on several of the 200+ cities they serve.
Bostonians will get their chance to sample the globally-inspired dishes at our own Poutinerie by Air Canada in Downtown Crossing from October 3 - 14.
The pop-up will feature 10 different poutine choices modeled after the cuisine of select cities serviced by Air Canada. There will also be a classic Montreal option of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy.
The Paris poutine is gluten-free and consists of french fries, duck confit, crème de brie, and black pepper.
The London features “Chips” (thick-cut fries), chicken curry, and raita.
The Seoul is made with fries, kimchi, and popcorn shrimp.
Each poutine dish is $5. The pop-up will also offer Canadian beer and wine for $4.
