Best Poutine in Downtown

So I've heard that McDonalds makes a mean poutine north of the border, but let's be real: if I'm driving to Canada, I'm not going to eat fast food.

Where are the best places for poutine or other distinctly local/Canadian bites in the Vancouver area? I'll be in town for a weekend, so I could probably do 2-3 places.

    Unbelievably the McDonald's poutine is in fact not too bad but you're right, probably not the most authentic. My favourites are Fritz European Fry House or Mean Poutine!

      Haha thanks! I mean I heard that it was the best, and I believed it, but I want at least SOME restaurant I can't find in the US :) · (0 likelikes)

    I've tried many but the one at Six Acres I can consider the best, yet the west coast is not comparable to the puotine you can have on the east coast, but it's still a pretty good sample.

      ps: this is not a chain restaurant and you can also drink some good craft beer, but the place is tiny and can get packed. · (1 likelikes)

      It's in Gastown, which is the nicest neighborhood in Downtown (and where I live ;) ) - Let me know when you come and I'll give you more suggestions! · (1 likelikes)

    Tim Horton's, it's fast food Canadian style although it is now owned by an American company (Wendy's I think) must be over 100 in the Vancouver area. My favorite Breakfast Sandwich with turkey sausage on a biscuit. www.timhortons.com
