    Drop down and get your gravy on.

    We asked you Canadians to tell us where to get the graviest and cheesiest poutine in our great nation.


    Alas, here are the best places in Canada to stuff your face with the perfect trifecta that is fries, gravy and cheese curds:

    1. Belgian Fries — Vancouver, British Columbia

    "Belgium Fries in Vancouver has the greatest poutine EVER. The fries are crispy, the gravy is thick, and the curds are massive. It is to die for."

    "Whistle Stop in Peterborough, Ontario has the largest selection in Canada. Not an exaggeration, it is a confirmed fact. 100+ types and they are all so friggin' good!"


    3. Ivan's Restaurant — North Bay, Ontario.

    "They don't skimp on the cheese or gravy and they have tons of speciality poutines, from 'Philly Cheese Steak' to 'Stacker' (covered in onion rings). The portions are huge and fairly priced."


    4. La Belle Patate — Canmore, Alberta

    "The owner is from Quebec so it’s about as authentic as you can get in this part of the country. Their Canadian poutine topped with bacon is to die for. Makes for great sober food as well as drunk food. They also have vegan options if you’re into that!"


    6. Joe Beeverz Bar & Grill — Brandon, Manitoba

    "The Wolf And Hound pub in Vancouver has the best poutine in the world. They come with truffle mayo, which is literally the best."


    9. Restaurant Chez Claudette — Montreal, Quebec

    "Try the 'Celine.' It's not authentic if it's not a greasy spoon in Quebec. Enjoy with a side of pogos and Blanche de Chambly."

    — Laura Huddart, Facebook

    "Jerk Chicken or Montreal Smoked Meat poutine anyone? I'm a traditionalist though, so I go for just the fries, gravy and curds. You can hear them chipping the potatoes by hand in the truck. The curds are local too. Mmmm!"

    — Megan Heather, Facebook

    12. La Banquise — Montreal, Quebec
