A Well-Known Poutine Joint Has Just Opened a New Location in Mississauga
Honestly, what's better than a poutine?
If you said "nothing," then we're on the same page. High in fat, calories and deliciousness, the quintessential Canadian comfort food is perfect for any and all occasions and it can be served in its classic form (straight up with nothing but fries, cheese curds and gravy) or with a plethora of wild ingredients (including pierogis).
Now, people who have been anxiously awaiting more poutine options might be happy to hear that Smoke's Poutinerie has opened a City Centre location on Confederation Parkway in Mississauga.
This will actually be its second City Centre resto, but the first is a little less known because it's inside Sheridan College.
"The new location follows the brand's success with the Sheridan College location at the Hazel McCallion campus that opened in 2016 as well as the Smoke's Poutinerie in Port Credit that opened in 2015," the brand said in a statement. "The citizens of Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, and Etobicoke now have even more access to weird, wild, and wacky poutine creations."
The news is likely to please diners, as Mississauga has shown great enthusiasm for Smoke's in the past. The brand's Port Credit location opened to great fanfare back in early 2015 and people were also enthused when the Sheridan College location opened.
“It’s global domination,” said Ryan Smolkin, Smoke’s CEO, in a past chat with inSauga.com. “We’ve been saying that since the beginning. It’s killer. The growth is killer. Port Credit is doing awesome with [the late night crowd] and families and the walking traffic. Now, we finally have the perfect location on Confederation Parkway."
As for the "weird and wacky" poutines, the menu features traditional, chili cheese and bacon, pierogi, pulled pork, jerk chicken, butter chicken, Korean, Philly cheesesteak, bacon cheeseburger, nacho grande and Mexican scrambler poutines (just to name a few).
The restaurant officially opened its doors at the end of November.
