Due to the brief interruption of rain, thunder, and lightning just as we were strapped into our treetop trekking gear at our Blue Mountain summer getaway, we weren’t able to go on the Timber Challenge High Ropes course for another 30 minutes. We decided to go for a quick lunch instead! After waiting an unreasonably long time to get the attention of the host at the Copper Blues restaurant in the village and still not getting any attention from our server even though we informed them that we had a limited amount of time to dine, we dashed over to Mile High Poutine instead for our lunch.
What a great decision this was! We ended up having a fast and delicious lunch! For those of you that don’t know, poutine is a Canadian invention that includes French fries with lots of gravy and cheese curds. It’s one of the most delicious foodie inventions ever made! 😀 I absolutely love my rich gravy and gooey melted cheese curds. 😀
Mile High Poutine not only serves the classic poutine, but they have a lot of different kinds of poutine which as chipotle chicken, Montreal smoked meat, buffalo wing, and nacho libre. What a selection! The Philly Cheese Steak one immediately caught my eye as I wanted something meaty and cheesy on this day.
Here’s what mine looked like!
The cheese was rich but not cheesy enough for me and I was actually a little disappointed to see that the Philly steak wasn’t even real steak meat. It was more akin to processed meat. In any case, I didn’t let that disappoint me too much because I enjoyed the poutine still.
I stole a bite from Wendy’s Nacho Libre and really loved the guacamole in hers. It was SO saucy which I loved and the toppings went all the way to the bottom of the cup. I love that! The worst thing about poutine is when the toppings don’t reach the bottom so that once you are finishing the last couple of fries they are dry and bare.
Desmond ordered the Buffalo Wing — I liked the chicken meat in it!
Mile High Poutine had a consistent long line-up of customers which continued even after we got our food. There are no tables or seats so after you buy it, you kind of walk off to the side to eat it. If you’re in Blue Mountain Village for the weekend, it’s a great choice to try out since it’s so Canadian too. 😛
