La Banquise – Poutine at its best

When I first arrived in Montreal in 2014 I was quickly introduced to poutine, a marvellous plate of French fries covered with gravy, cheese curds and anything else you desire.

La Banquise is by far one of my favourite places to get some. It is a medium-sized place with an outside terrace that serves about 30 different sorts of poutine. From tomato and guacamole to Swiss cheese and bacon, there’s something for everyone, including a vegan option. It’s a perfect no-fuss place to hang out with friends or family and anyone that doesn’t fancy poutine can get a burger, sandwich or salad.

Because it’s just that good, there’s usually a line to get in. However, it’s open 24h a day so there’s plenty of time to go during the less busy hours.
