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.

Vancouver (British Columbia)

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 :)

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.

Not far from downtown? Awesome suggestion!

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!

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

The best poutine is at Belgian Fries on Commercial Drive.
