Ohhh poutine, you saucy, thing you. How is something so simple just so damn good?! If you have never tried this Quebecois cuisine, it's time to change that! And boy do we have an absolute treat to announce—Auckland is getting a poutine food truck! Yep, you read that 100% correctly. You will soon be able to get all of that greasy, cheesy, comforting goodness from up-and-coming food truck, Philippe's.
Named after its owner, Philippe Boulanger, it will bring you all things poutine to spice up your dreary days. Philippe was inspired to start his truck after growing up visiting Quebec and, missing his Canadian classics, he finally decided to quit his day job and live his dream.
But, this will not be poutine like you know it. There will be three oh-so-good options for you to try. Firstly, there's the FRIED CHICKEN POUTINE. Excuse us, we just died and went to heaven. Or, the dry-rubbed, slow cooked meat sounds just as delish.
If meat isn’t your thing, you needn't worry! The wood-smoked BBQ, pulled Portobello mushroom is sure to be a winner. Mushrooms have never sounded so good.
Philippe spends all of his spare hours perfecting his recipes and we just can't wait until he opens his truck.
There's no more deets for now, but watch this space and check out Philippe's Facebook page, because we'll be keeping you posted!
Can't wait until then?
