Not only is there a Vancouver Poutine Festival but there is also a Vancouver Poutine Challenge. Here is a list of places participating in the challenge and Google map created by user Kent. The Poutine Challenge takes place from February 5-28, 2013.
You’ll notice when looking down the list that many of the best poutine spots in Vancouver aren’t on the list. Fritz, La Belle Patate, Mean Poutine and even the newly opened Smoke’s Poutineries are not represented in the challenge.
