Late Night Toronto Poutine Offers Drunken After-Bar Sustenance

Late Night Toronto Poutine Offers Drunken After-Bar Sustenance

There’s something about being drunk and eating sloppy shit that just goes together.

So it's only rational that there would be so many places to get amazing poutine in Toronto late at night. I'm talking poutine so good you’ll want to jump in the air and slam dunk it into your own mouth.

I mean, big up to Qubec for flipping ketchup the bird and giving the world fries covered in melted cheese curds and gravy. It’s fucking great. But there are a lot of Toronto poutine shops that do a mighty fine job too - albeit not quite as authentic as restaurants in the province that created the dish. But damn close.

Here’s a rundown of some of the best late-night places to hit up after the bar has booted you out and you're in serious need of poutine in Toronto, listed in no particular order.

And we know this is in no way a complete list of poutine spots in Toronto that stay open late. If you know other places not mentioned here, feel free to make a place suggestion below.
