If you’re on a New Year’s diet, you might want to look away. Because La Poutine Week has kicked off in Montreal and some of the dishes are seriously monstrous.

The 11th edition of La Poutine Week returned to the Montreal area on February 1 and will stick around until February 14.

The nationwide festival allows a variety of local restaurants to create their own signature poutine dish, vying to become the citywide champion as voted by restaurant patrons.

Some spots stick to slight variations of the classic trifecta, while others veer off the traditional poutine path and create some behemoth dishes.

Prices vary per dish and now that restaurants can open in Quebec, poutine fans can choose between dining in or scarfing poutine via DoorDash.

Here are some of the wildest ones from around Montreal. If you’re wondering if your favourite spot is dishing out the classic Quebec plate, check out which Montreal spots are participating right here.
