Air Canada Hopes To Inspire Global Travel With Pop-Up Poutineries
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.
