2021 Best Poutine


Shōjō’s “Shadowless” fries might not be poutine by the strictest definition, but this fusion twist on the Canadian comfort food is too good to argue over technicalities. It trades brown gravy for a spicy sauce of beef mapo tofu, replaces curds with tangy “kimcheese,” and employs super-crispy duck-fat fries that can contend with anything offered up in Montreal.
