Rumors of Poutine in Los Angeles

Went to Vic's for lunch and ended up talking to a dude from Montreal for a half-hour. Canadians are nice people. It's true. Polite, friendly people. They really don't belong in Los Angeles at all.

Anyway, I now know of two places in SoCal where one can get poutine.

First, is Redondo Beach Cafe, owned by a pair of Greco-Canadian brothers, and serving up a fine selection of smoked meat sandwiches, Greek food, and poutine.

Second is Soleil Westwood. I guess it's quite a bit nicer, going for the whole French bistro feel, but I've heard they have a good Poutine. I believe it is owned by a Quebecois. No offense meant, if I'm wrong.

Finally went to Soleil, twice actually. I loved it! Read my review here.

If you don't know what a poutine is, it's a Quebecois dish from Montreal. One translation is something like "mess," as in "a total mess of stuff thrown together."

It is made of French fries, covered in cheese curds and brown gravy. Sounds weird, I know, but I've had it, and it was awesome. I only had it once, in New York, at a Belgian place called Pommes Frites. I have been told that their version is fairly lackluster, which fills me with excitement at the thought of having a proper poutine. My opinion is that their version was exceptionally tasty. I have wistful memories of it.

Also, I seriously need to start taking a camera with me everwhere, because I saw the A-1 douchiest thing ever. There was a guy in line for food wearing FAKE nerd glasses. They were 3D glasses, with the lenses taken out, and a piece of white athletic tape wrapped around the middle. Man, I wanted to smack that guy so bad. Some of us actually WERE nerds, and we all hope that fake nerds die in fires.

If you're wearing fake nerd glasses, you make me sick.

Seriously. I always HOPED I'd get a nonsense hate-spam like this, and it's finally happened.
