Poutine may have originated in Québec, but you can certainly get your cravings satisfied in Toronto for steaming hot fries smothered in gravy and squeaky cheese curds. If you’re a self-respecting fan of the dish, we insist that you pay a visit to Nom Nom Nom Crepes.
Located at Market 707 (Toronto’s first outdoor shipping container market), the establishment is owned by Marc Perraut from Montreal who has a reputation for his inventive French-style street food. We’ve been fortunate enough to take many of our groups there on our “Best of the West” food tour to sample his decadent crepes. Lately, Marc has been putting his culinary talents into serving up the Québécois staple to hungry Torontonians and visitors alike.
There are 6 different kinds of poutine on the menu including smoked meat from the famous Dunn’s Montreal, slowed pulled pork with chipotle, and seasoned chicken with caramelized onions and brie. But of course, you can always go for the classic.
Marc’s poutine has become so popular in the city that last month it was featured in BlogTO and voted by readers as the best poutine in Toronto. His secret to making it so good? Well, he says it’s quite simple and reveals that it involves using the best red potatoes, sourcing the gravy from Québec and whipping up batches of his own freshly made cheese curds. Voilà!
Need we say more? You can drop by Nom Nom Nom Crepes from Monday – Saturday from 11:30 am – 7:00 pm. Marc has also teamed up with Hurrier to provide delivery in the downtown area if you find yourself in desperate need of your poutine fix.
