The Metropolitan Brasserie’s Duck Poutine

Shredded duck, triple cream brie and foie-gras gravy (what? who knew such a thing even existed??) make up this insanely decadent and literally heart stoppingly tasty poutine.   It can be found at the The Metropolitan Brasserie; a gorgeous, lively and delicious french restaurant in downtown Ottawa, which also happens to be right up the street from work. For this reason it often gets picked for after work drinks and celebrations.  Recently I was there for a coworker’s going away party and decided it was a perfect time to try this poutine creation I’d been eying and dreaming about for a few months now.

It was beyond rich, with a very generous chunk of triple cream brie and enough of that foie-gras gravy to generously coat the crispy fries.  So rich in fact that I actually shared and still couldn’t finish it.  It’s not something I could eat regularly but I’m glad I tried it because what I did eat was downright delectable.  Everything I love about poutine, but fancier!
