The Gravy Train Poutinerie is Canadian comfort food fit for the silver screen

Tum Cohl and Evan Goldberg are Canadian natives who moved to Los Angeles to start their careers in the movie and music industries. After moving from Canada, they missed a special part of their college days in Montreal – poutine. Poutine is a Canadian comfort food consisting of fries, gravy, and cheese curds. A light bulb went off! With many Canadian transplants in California, they decided to start a stand on movie sets to cater to the hungry production crews. They became so popular, that in March 2012, they made a move to the gourmet food truck world.

The Poutine Sliders are two mini all-beef burgers topped with hand-cut fries, fresh cheese curds, and choice of gravy on sweet Hawaiian rolls. These were amazing! The hand-formed, plump patties were juicy and flavorful. Having poutine actually in the slider added a crunchy texture from the crispy fries, velvety texture and porky flavor from the gravy, and creamy saltiness from the cheese curds. The sweet Hawaiian roll gave it a little sweetness to bring it all together. These giant sliders were served with even more crispy fries and sprinkled with a little sea salt. This was so good - a meal in itself! Thumbs up, way up!
