When in Montreal, one must try poutine, right? It's a gift (or curse, depending on your cholesterol level) from French Canada of french fries topped with chicken gravy and squeaky cheese curds. If you're truly fortunate, you may also find some smoked meat or foie gras on top. Yes, somehow the good people of Quebec province have managed to outdo the folks at Outback.

But I can't look away, and so I'm turning to you for help. Who has Montreal's best poutine? If you don't see your favorite in the poll, be sure to add it in the comments.
