ha! That is the ultimate question!
I did not end up finding poutine… kind of.
There are only 3 “restaurants” within a walkable radius from where I am right now. I’m near the airport, but outside enough that I can’t easily to go it without a shuttle.
The 3 “restaurants” are: Tim Horton’s, Lafleur and an Italian restaurant. I walked to Lafleur, where they typically sell poutine. It was 20 minutes walk one way. I get there and there’s no seating area, meaning I would have to eat it standing outside, or walk all the way back and it would be terribly cold…
I actually went back to the room and ordered food in. But there’s a minimum amount to spend for delivery, so poutine was too cheap.
I’m staying in the city center tonight. Maybe I’ll have a good one for Valentine’s day!
