Casse-Crôute Chez Claudette St. MargueritePosted By Jennifer Ho Nov 23 2011 · 0 comments · Snacks & Street Food
Quaint and cozy, this joint is a typical Québecois diner. Its authenticity is further highlighted by the fact that it is located relatively deep in the countryside of Québec, where the population is dominated by francophones – also the ones who invented the irreplaceable, unlike any other, international recognized and provincially representative dish of poutine. Just off the main graveled road is a little house that is one of the oldest mainstays in town. Behold, the Casse-Crôute Chez Claudette! The food served here is basic – hot dogs, hamburgers and… poutine ! And boy, do they do it well. The cheese curds are freshly made, squeaky and firm and the fries hold their form even in the onslaught of thick, delicious gravy. Poutine doesn’t get realer than this.
P.S. The casse-crôute is in St-Marguerite, the town closest to Esterel – you might have seen billboards and signs advertising the newly renovated Hotel Esterel.
