Don’t Miss: Air Canada’s Poutine Pop-UpBy Iona Goulder
Poutine may not win first price at a beauty pageant, but believe us, the combination of chips, gravy and cheese curds is enough to turn you into a die hard fan after a couple of bites. This dish is the best late night snack going – and back in Canada where this comfort food classic was conceived – the poutine varieties are next level (count your lucky stars if there’s poutine topped with bacon on the menu). And while there’s a handful of places in London you get your gooey, cheesy, carb-y fix, Air Canada are launching ‘Poutinerie by Air Canada’ in London’s Old Spitalfields Market from Friday 5th October – Sunday 14th October, offering a gourmet Poutine menu with some extra special global twists.
In its classic form, the Canadian favourite combines crispy chips topped with delicious cheese curd and a flavourful gravy. Building on the success of last year’s London pop-up, this year’s Poutinerie by Air Canada will offer variations of the dish based on its global flight routes including the mouth-watering Hawaiian Loco Moco Poutine Poke made up of fries, seared salmon, boiled egg, scallion, crispy pineapple and sesame ginger miso mayo, alongside the vegan friendly Cancun’s Mayan Enchilada featuring sweet potato fries, corn chips, red enchilada sauce and avocado cilantro dressing.
The Poutinerie will include a covered outdoor area where you can enjoy your dishes with a selection of Canadian beer and wine. And everyone who buys a poutine will be in with a chance to win Air Canada flights. Two economy flights are on offer every day to any destination Air Canada flies to within its network of over 200 #CoolNotCold destinations on six continents including Cancun and Melbourne.
Poutinerie by Air Canada at Old Spitalfields Market will open from Friday 5th October – Sunday 14th October 2018.
