One thing we really wanted to do during our day in Saint John was to try poutine. Poutine is a Canadian snack (from Quebec I think, but we couldn't get there) - french fries topped with gravy and cheese curds. Kind of like disco fries, but better.

We researched online and found a couple of places in Saint John that were supposed to have good poutine. One was Deluxe French Fries, located in the food court of the Brunswick Square shopping centre:

Sure enough, when we got there, there was poutine on the menu!

After a short wait, our poutine was ready:

It was really good. Our favorite part was the gravy, which was so full of flavor. It's probably not the best poutine ever as the cheese was packaged (and not fresh from that day) and it was in a food court, but it was good and we were satisfied with our snack. Canada is the first country on our world eats project so we will be investigating some other places here that serve poutine. It was nice to be able to try it in Canada to see how it should taste!

Deluxe French Fries is located in the Brunswick Square Shopping Centre on King Street in Uptown Saint John. If you're in Saint John for a cruise, it is a very short walk from the ship terminal and connects to both Market Square and City Market by pedway. The food court is on the lower level.
