Disney World’s Poutine Obsession: 15 Ways To Get Your French Fry Fix

So…a poutine cloud apparently burst over Orlando and now you can get varieties of this relatively obscure French Canadian pub grub delicacy pretty much everywhere in Disney World. There’s even a dining spot completely dedicated to poutine.

The dish traditionally consists of French fries covered in cheese curds and brown gravy, and Canadians will cheerfully tell you that NONE of the dishes below qualify. Yet they’re called Poutine on the menu, and since we love french fries with stuff piled on top of them, we’re happy to tally them up for you!

Oh, and here’s some real Canadian poutine for reference.

So here’s the Disney World Poutine Crawl!

Cheddar Cheese Poutine — Refreshment Port, Epcot

Cheddar Cheese Poutine is the most recent addition to the poutine World and can be found at the Refreshment Port in Epcot.

This version of poutine is covered in Le Cellier’s Cheddar Cheese Soup, which is indulgent and packed with bacon (recipe here!). And now guests can grab a plate of Cheddar Cheese Poutine (or a cup of the soup by itself) without a coveted ADR!

Cheddar Cheese Poutine also has the traditional cheese curds and some golden French fries. Oui, please!

Kobe Beef Brisket Poutine — Nomad Lounge, Animal Kingdom

Nomad Lounge has become pretty well known for its adventurous drinks and eats, so we were stoked to discover Kobe Beef Brisket Poutine on the Lounge’s small plates menu!

This poutine is super classy, y’all. The bed of thick-cut fries is covered in Kobe-style beef brisket, house-made mozzarella, and savory pan sauce. Plus there’s extra cheese sauce on the bottom of the bowl! This poutine is a must!

Alas, the Kobe Beef Brisket Poutine is currently off the Nomad Lounge Small Bites Menu — but we realllllly hope it comes back!

Classic, French, Italian, Latin, and Seasonal Poutine — The Daily Poutine, Disney Springs

You know a snack has made it to the upper echelons when it has a spot named after it — and thus we have The Daily Poutine! The best part about the menu at The Daily Poutine is that there are always several varieties to try.

Classic Poutine features the fries, curds, and brown gravy of poutine’s birth. (This is the closest to authentic Canadian poutine currently found anywhere in Disney World.)

Latin Poutine has fried yucca, black beans, pulled pork, and queso fresco.

There’s s whole process for asking for the secret menu at All Star Movies, so you’ll definitely want to check out the DFB Guide’s YouTube video sharing this secret menu — it’s totally awesome.

Sock Hop Fries — Beaches and Cream Soda Shop, Disney’s Beach Club Resort

Beaches and Cream Soda Shop is one of our favorite spots to grab a burger and some ice cream (you’ll find at Beach Club on the walkway near Stormalong Bay!), and it also happens to be home to Sock Hop Fries.

Now we admit, Sock Hop Fries (also called Gravy Fries!) aren’t technically poutine, but we’ve already seen that Disney takes plenty of leeway when creating these plates of French fry goodness. So we’ll give Sock Hop Fries a pass because they have all the flavors of classic poutine: brown gravy and white cheddar shredded cheese (instead of curds). They’re so messy and delicious. We love them.

Carolina Mess — House of Blues, Disney Springs

In Disney Springs’ West Side, guests can munch on Carolina Mess at the House of Blues.

Carolina Mess is a plate of fries covered in pulled pork, jalapenos, cheese, and brown gravy. Quite the combo. It’s a southern take on the Canadian classic!

Montreal Poutine and Signature Poutine — Le Cellier Steakhouse, Epcot

You can’t talk about poutine without talking about Le Cellier, the signature table service residing in the Canada Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. This place represents the birthplace of poutine — and Le Cellier has some tasty options on its menu.

Montreal Poutine is fresh-cut French fries, Montreal-smoked brisket, French onion gravy, Gruyère cheese, pickled vegetable slaw, and mustard-beer sauce. Yes,that’s a lot of good stuff in one pan. But it’s just a stellar combination of flavors.

The Signature Poutine is French fries, Canadian cheddar, truffles, red wine reduction. There’s not technically a brown sauce. Or cheese curds. But with ingredients like truffles and red wine reduction, this is about as fancy a poutine as you can find. And it truly IS delicious.

Canadian Poutine — Paradiso 37, Disney Springs

Paradiso 37 is our last stop on this tour of Walt Disney World poutine, and this version pretty crazy.
Paradiso 37 Outside View

FYI — there are much better restaurants than Paradiso 37 when it comes to entrees and full meals, but they do a great job with appetizers and drinks. And this particular dish caught us totally off guard.

The Canadian Poutine is 100% not at all Canadian, and is basically more of a “nacho fries with gravy” than anything else. But that’s cool, cause it’s SO GOOD. Topping the fries are cheese sauce, roasted garlic gravy, braised beef, and cherry peppers. It’s a terrific combination of flavors in the spirit of poutine — and the briny peppers add a little something unique. Plus it’s heavy and built for two, so this one is party ready.

So…yeah. Basically none of these are authentic Canadian poutine. But in our world, good food is good food! What are you waiting for? Get your “poutine” on!
