Obviously you have to have poutine when in Halifax. We went to Smoke's because Willy's was closed and we didn't want to take the time to cross the water to go to Cheese Curds. I wish we had. I got the original poutine at Smoke's...More
I have to admit, I'm a bit torn when it comes to Smoke's. See, I'm originally from Quebec, and had been in Halifax for a bit over a year before I heard that this place existed. By then, you'll understand, I was craving a poutine...More
