Butter Chicken Poutine, Anyone? Canadian French Fries Get Desi Twist

Ten-Second Takeaway

Opa Hospitality, the brains behind the Bombay Food Truck are launching Poutinewalla, a new pop-up {soon to be restaurant in Bandra}, which will combine Canada’s gravy-take on French fries with Indian flavours.

Tell Me More

You didn’t think French fries could be improved, did you? Neither did we, until we had poutine. Poutine is a Canadian dish which consists of three ingredients: fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds: absolute heaven for any savoury food lover.

Varieties of this dish have been available in Mumbai {chef Kelvin Cheung’s duck poutine, and gravy fries from The J in Colaba come to mind}, but Poutinewalla offers a decidedly Mumbai twist to things. The menu will include a bhaji poutine {the pav bhaji meets poutine}, the butter chicken poutine {fresh butter gravy, chicken pieces with fries} and the mushroom and cheese poutine {self-explanatory}.

Where To Buy?

Right now, the Poutinewalla is having a three-day popup at HR College in Churchgate, after which they will be a wandering pop-up until they open their restaurant in Bandra in a few months.

Where: Head to HR College for the next three days {123, Dinshaw Wachha Road, Churchgate} for the latest Poutinewalla pop-up till July 22.

Price: INR 110 upwards
