To Market, To Market.

The Bier Markt is good for a lot of things. Beer, for example. But gastronomical hotbed it is not. And so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by what I found there on a recent outing to the resto’s newest location on King Street West – a middling offering of fries, gravy and curds packaged as poutine.

The fact is, it was fine. The gravy was fine. The fries were fine. The cheese was fine. There were some layering issues. And they could have been more generous with the gravy (ratio is important to me - take a close look at the photo below...there are some dry fries in there). But it wasn’t terrible.

It just wasn’t great.

My advice? Stick to the beer – let’s seek out a poutine that’s worth the calories.

  1. I agree, the Poutine doesn't look amazing, but whoever took the photo must be very talented!
