Dip Into French Fry Decadence at This Year’s Poutine Indulgence
Throughout March, Poutine Passport holders will be able to sample poutine from seven restaurants and food trucks throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
Spud lovers, your wait is over.
The Museum of Work and Culture’s Poutine Indulgence, the annual celebration of all things crispy, creamy, comforting and cheesy, returns this March.
Throughout the month, March 1 to 31, Poutine Passport holders will be able to sample poutine – the Quebecois delicacy of French fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds – from seven restaurants and food trucks throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
The sixth annual competition is part of La Francophonie, the Woonsocket museum’s monthlong celebration of French culture and language.
This year’s lineup includes two new Massachusetts eateries – the Poutine Peddlers of Taunton and Red’s Kitchen of Seekonk – as well as returning Rhode Island favorites Friskie Fries (Providence and Johnston); Adeline’s Speakeasy Kitchen Bar (Cumberland); Ciro’s Tavern (Woonsocket); KG Kitchen Bar (Providence); and Ming’s Sando Bar (Pawtucket).
Passports are available for $15 each and $25 for two. (An incredible bargain, if you ask us, for up to seven heaping platefuls of soul-soothing comfort carbs.) Passport holders have until April 1 to vote for their favorite poutine, and the winner will be crowned during the museum’s Salute to Spring event on April 3.
