WW: Lebanese poutine


(Because the restaurant where I ordered this is in the States, it calls this dish "shawarma fries". When my plate arrived I was unsurprised to find that it is in fact Lebanese poutine. I didn't ask the staff where they got the idea, but Québec boasts a large Lebanese population, and immigrant families tend to split on entry, with some going north and others south. So it may ultimately be a Canadian invention.

Given that the whole "sauce and cheese on fries" thing isn't a thing in the States, you gotta give them credit for audacity, to say nothing of skill. This stuff is darn good; it would fly out the door in Montréal. Hope it catches on here, too.)
