1. Chez Claudette 351 Ave Laurier E, Montreal, H2T 1G7 (Plateau)

Open 24hrs from Thursday to Saturday, Chez Claudette is a definite contender for the best poutine spot in the Plateau. So when you get that craving for a meat-substitute at 4am, try Chez Claudette's Pogo/corndog poutine.

2. Depanneur Nouveau Forum 1250 Rue Crescent, Montreal, H3G 2A9‎

If you can get past the fact that this poutine spot is, admittedly, kind of sketchy and weird, and you'll be rewarded with some of Montreal's most well-made poutines -- 15 well-made poutines, in fact.

3. Miami Deli 3090 Rue Sherbrooke E, Montreal, H1W 1B5

Miami Deli may not have the best poutine ever, but it's saving grace is that it's open 24hrs, meaning poutine all the time, any time. Still, the Americana poutine, a hot mess (in the best way) of meat and onions piled high over a bed of fries, is actually pretty great.

4. Restaurant AA 3700 Rue Notre-Dame O, Montreal, H4C 1P7‎ (Saint Henri)

Known as Double A, this little poutine spot is light on the glitz but heavy on flavor. Their awesome gravy takes 7 hours to make and they always go heavy on the cheese.

7. L'Orignal 479 Rue Saint-Alexis, Montreal, H2Y 1X4 (Old Montreal)

This well known game restaurant also serves up some mean poutine. But only those in the know can order it, as the item isn't listed on the menu…

8. Double Pizza 5940 Rue Sherbrooke O, Montreal, H4A 1X7

Many simply write off Double Pizza as drunk food, and while they may be right they also forget that it has some pretty great poutine on the menu. Using crispy Costco-like french fries topped with more-than-generous amounts of cheese and gravy, Double Pizza's poutine isn't complex or refined, but it definitely tastes amazing.

Not enough people seem to know about the beautiful fusion of Québécoise and Lebanese cuisine served at this downtown spot. Plus, their "poutine taouk" is great.
