Poutine: What’s the deal? Canada’s sloppiest dish has become a total thing here in Seattle. Why? How did this happen?
In this series, we confront some of Seattle’s premier poutine providers, and find out why they’re heaping piles of fries, cheese curds, and gravy upon us.
We begin in Fremont, at Scott Staples’s joint, Uneeda Burger. Uneeda’s line cook Ryan Trevors is one of the poutine pros up in there; in this segment he explains the strange appeal of the Canadian concoction, and tells us where it falls on the Quality Spectrum of Things We’ve Inherited From our Neighbors to the North.
