Disney is always looking for ways to add uniqueness to the parks including Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Recently, Downtown Disney was rebranded to Disney Springs which added almost three dozen new stores and dining options. Upscale shopping includes Sephora, Zara, Tommy Bahama, Vera Bradley, and Volcom and dining includes D-Luxe Burger, Sprinkles complete with a cupcake ATM, and The Daily Poutine.
The Daily Poutine
This counter-service dining location is a small hut of sorts that serves up a Canadian classic: poutine.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably never heard of poutine before. Well, Disney is going to bring poutine to the masses, and I believe it will become even more popular outside of Canada and bordering areas.
Poutine is said to have been created in Quebec in the 1950s. The traditional dish is made up of French Fries and cheese curds and topped with a light brown gravy. The dish is sometimes topped with sausage, chicken, bacon, or smoked meats, or it can be made with sweet potatoes for a healthier version.
In Disney’s Poutinerie, diners can choose between Classic, Latin, Italian, and French. The classic poutine is what we discussed above. The Latin uses yucca (much like a sweet potato), black beans, pulled pork, and queso fresco. The Italian Poutine is made with mozzarella cheese and a red Bolognese sauce instead of brown gravy. Finally, the French poutine consists of fries, gruyere, and mushroom cream sauce.
The Daily Poutine also serves drinks including the alcoholic options Unibroue Blanche de Chambly Witbier, a Belgian white ale, Yuengling Lager, and Fireball Sangria.
Non-alcoholic drinks like the watermelon lemonade and fountain beverages will quench your thirst too!
So, was it any good? In a word, yes!
The fries were delicious. I was a little leery of the cheese curds, but they were very good, and warmed up as they sat on the hot fries. And while I’m not a huge fan of beef gravy, it created a great combination.
I highly recommend you check out the Daily Poutine the next time you visit Disney Springs.
