Tater Tot Poutine

I saw a tweet about someone making tater tot poutine and so I says to myself I says, “Stacey, there’s no reason you can’t make that!” So I did. I stopped at No-Frills, my local grocery store and picked up a package of gravy mix and a bag of cheese curds. A quick stop at […]

Big Red’s Poutine

Big Red’s Poutine Food Truck

I’ve been following the Instagram feed from the food truck called Big Red’s Poutine on social media for months now. So you can imagine how delighted I was when I saw the Big Red’s Poutine food truck at the Port Moody Farmers Market last weekend! I have to admit, eating the poutine from Big Red’s […]


Poutine and Banh Mi at The Rivermarket

I was in New Westminster yesterday and jumped at the opportunity to go see what the New West waterfront/Front Street looks like now that the multi-level parkade has been taken down from Begbie Street over to 6th.

Anny’s Smoked Meat and Poutine

I always love it when worlds collide, especially in relation to my food blogging. And that is exactly what happened at lunch today. I had a meeting with a client scheduled for today in New Westminster, I needed a photo of poutine for my weekly Gastropost competition and I had a hankering for a Montreal […]


Poutine; the Quintessential Canadian Food

I consider burgers, apple pie, and cheddar cheese as the quintessential American foods. That  got me to wondering what the most quintessential Canadian foods are. What are the foods identified around the world as “Canadian”? After some deliberation I came to the conclusion that poutine, maple syrup and Canadian bacon are the quintessential Canadian foods.

Remember awhile ago I visited a little place in New Westminster called The Spud Shack? Yeah? I liked the food. Well, I suppose I kind of gushed about their food. Well, apparently I am not the only one who enjoyed their food. I just read on my favourite Vancouver food blogger’s site that The Spud Shack […]
