    Anyone know where to get the best Poutine at Buller?

    A friend told me that Kooroora Kitchen serves some good poutine, but are there any other places that server you good poutines? (a.k.a "artery clogger" [​IMG] )

    Cheers [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure Apres do. But I can't say I'm a fan of that stuff. Anyway Cattleman's chips are absolutely brilliant this year and (dare I say it) almost, not quite, but almost worth the $8!

    Where is that? I have heard of it, but can't quite remember where it was.

    EDIT: Never mind. Found it. I been there before, didn't know that they served poutine!

    Yeah I think they're about $8. Might be $7.50. Anyway they are so so good.

    Apres is on Athlete's Walk, in the Chalet complex.

    Definately Kooroora Kitchen for Poon,
    However the beer battered chips at Apres are awesome.

    Are they better than Lord of the Fries? (a chips shop in Melbourne CBD next to Flinders Street Station)

    apres is not doing beer batter fries this year and the poon from there tastes like crap, comes in a smaller bowl then last year and is the same price as last year.

    I agree, my chips were soggy, meal was small and the gravy resembled worcestershire sauce. Poutine rating 2/10 (2 points given for the bacon quality). Go the kids hotdog and chips instead (they are for my son! honestly waiter!)

    Kooroora, crispy chips, good cheese, could use more bacon, good gravy, yum. Poutine rating 8/10

    Lord of the fries, good but bacon tastes bad, poutine rating 6/10. stick to the belgian mayo fries here.

    I tried the Poon at Apres. It was crap. I thought I was eating a bowl of lard with some potato as a side meal. To make it worse, my Poutine was cold by the time I started eating it. Not going there again!

    you mostly find this in Quebec - in fact IIRC you could even get it in Maccas when I was last there in the early 90's. So not everyone in Canada knows of it or eats it - kind of like we Mexicans wouldn't touch XXXX beer even if it was the last beer in the world [​IMG]

    It may not have the cheese and bacon, but the chips and gravy at Tirol are pretty good. And on a sunny day the view is spectacular.

    Not the same as Canadian Poutine, can even get it at Maccas there.

    Definately Kooroora for best Poutine at Buller, goes well with a pint of beer after a day on the hill.
