I am a student blogger on the cusp of graduating and entering the scary big wide world. Subscribe for my dissertation-induced comfort eating Odyssey!
Published April 17th 2017

I recently returned from a term abroad in Canada and I have been having severe poutine withdrawal. Poutine is a Canadian dish; fries topped with cheese curds and then smothered in gravy, it is the ultimate comfort food.

So when I went to Edinburgh with my parents I got my Google on and found somewhere that served poutine; enter stage right, Bread Meats Bread.

When we arrived there was a 10 minute wait with nowhere to sit, this is a great indicator of popularity but if a place is busy during a weekday and there is nowhere to sit and wait, that can become a little tedious.

But then we sat down and got a pitcher of beer (absolutely do this, it was a godsend). Then I ordered a hot dog, my mum ordered a spicy chicken burger and my dad ordered a beef burger, and we got a large poutine between us.

The hotdog and chicken burger were delicious but just on the wrong side of spicy, the beef burger was also lovely, and the poutine was heavenly, albeit a little too peppery. But even with all of my complaints I still would have eaten a bucket of that poutine.

I would definitely recommend Bread Meats Bread, but I would suggest going at an off-peak time, avoid anything that specifically says spicy on the menu, and order a pitcher of beer. Happy Eating!
