Battle Results! Best Poutine Battle: Brampton vs. Mississauga


We just celebrated Canada's 151st birthday, and since Canada Day happened just a few short days ago, there's a strong possibility that you celebrated our nation's birth with one of our most famous cuisines: poutine.

When it comes to great poutine, everything is important. Are the fries perfectly cooked? Is the gravy savoury with absolutely no curdles? Is the cheese scrumptious and melty? Are the additional toppings--if there are any--delicious?

Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable poutine options--but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

What places were competing?
