Youmay have heard the rumours surrounding Stacks, who have taken up residency in Birthdays, dishing out posh chips and gravy, dubbed as the perfect hangover cure. This trend comes from Quebec and goes by the name of Poutine and involves a pile of chips, gravy and cheese curd. Yep, that’s chips, cheese and gravy…
Now, people who know LOTI will know we are Northerns…and back in the 90’s we’d have this for breakfast. A staple part of any self-respecting council house dweller’s diet. Stacks however get creative, and besides the ‘classic’ poutine they knock up a fair few interesting varieties including Pulled Pork poutine…truly awesome, and even a Cheeseburger Poutine, where chopped up burger is thrown into the mix.
It may not sound too appetising or even look like something you’d consider eating…but be gone with your pretentiousness, where is your will to be weird? We promise you this, if you are freezing cold, 4 pints deep or lost in a world hangoverness Poutine is where you need to be. DANG! Besides, in charge of the kitchen is Canadian Paul Dunits…he knows what he is doing!
Give their cocktails a whirl too, the largeritta…all day.
