Crepe Rhubarbe: Sweet crepes are Ravenous' forte. The filling is the right balance of sweet and tart with fresh strawberries, apples, and rhubarb and just the right amount of sugar. A dollop of whipped cream rounded out the dish and was the perfect topping for an added decadence.
Pomme Frites: We missed the boat on poutine but weren't disappointed by an order of fries. These handcut frites were stellar and delightfully golden and crispy. An order comes with your pick of dipping dipping sauces from pesto mayo to sriracha ketchup. Most of the sauces we wanted to try had ran out but the horseradish mayo we ended up with was a good creamy accompaniment. With these sturdy fries, we had high hopes for the poutine.
Poutine: Finally on a return visit, we got to try the poutine. I could tell the owner had a French Canadian accent and was hoping that from one Canadian ex-pat to another that flavors from my childhood would come through. Sadly, this did not live up to our expectations. The gravy had good flavor but was thin and lacking. As for the cheese curds, they did not squeak and weren't the flavor we were looking for. For what it's worth, the fries were still good. Our search for good States-side poutine continues. Squeak squeak.
