The first Annual Vancouver Foodster Poutine Challenge was a huge success featuring 29 poutine from 29 restaurants around Vancouver, North Vancouver and Richmond. Each restaurant featured their poutine from April 11-30th, and then the public voted between April 30th – May 6th. The poutine dishes ranged from the traditional to non-traditional.

Thank you to all the chefs and restaurants that accepted my invitation and featured their poutine on the menu for the past few weeks during this challenge.
I encourage you to visit the winning restaurants to try their poutine!
Looking forward to the 2nd annual Poutine Challenge next year where I challenge chefs and their restaurants to concoct more exciting poutine dishes!
