Meet Smoke’s Poutinerie, an Ontario transplant that never met anything it didn’t want to immediately place atop a mess of fries, opening Monday in Hollywood. You’ll want to see this slideshow.
It’s a strip mall situation on Cahuenga, where people tend to partake in after-dark activities that stoke one’s desire for hand-cut fries under gravy, fresh cheese curds and smoked meats. Quite convenient.
Maybe you’ve been day-drinking with friends next door at District 13 or Stout. You tap a friend on the shoulder, pointing to the door. Dip in here. Something like the double-smoked bacon, pulled pork and Italian sausage Triple Pork Poutine may sound like a decent idea.
Or the fries topped with bacon cheeseburger ingredients. That’s what friends are for.
Or maybe there’ll be a good special. Sometimes they do specials. One time, the Halifax outpost put deep-fried Cadbury Creme eggs on top of bacon fries.
The poutine equivalent of a mic drop.
