Poutine, the classic mixture of fries, cheese curds and gravy, has become a quintessential dish of Montreal, Canada. In Canada, the popular, savory dish is frequented by the weekend’s late night/early morning crowds, hungry for some greasy sustenance to subdue their alcohol-fueled hunger pangs before slipping into bed, just in time to beat sunrise.
However, while it’s important to know and understand the history of poutine, you might be able to get your hands on some — without having to renew your passport, or purchase a plane ticket to Canada.
Enter Three Seventy Common Kitchen + Drinks. Located in Laguna Beach, Calif., roughly 2,900 miles west of Montreal, you can find a picturesque homage to the Quebecian dish.
Executive Chef Ryan Adams specializes in more than just poutine – still it would be wise to add 370 Common’s Foodbeast Approved Short Rib Poutine to the list of mouthwatering creations that will grace your palate during your visit.
Chef Adams, who was voted Orange County’s Chef of the Year in 2014, has spent a great deal of time perfecting his poutine. It should only take one glimpse of a gooey cheese pull, or one taste of Adams’ gluttonously delicious house made short rib gravy, and fries. It’s no wonder this internationally-inspired dish has become a local celebrity.
