If you love french fries (and who doesn’t?) you’ll want to add The Daily Poutine to your list of “must-do” eateries during your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
Do you know the way to The Daily Poutine?
Finding The Daily Poutine may prove a bit tricky. Because it is considered a kiosk, it’s not assigned a number on the Disney Springs map. When we arrived at Disney Springs, the Cast Member we asked didn’t even know where it was! The Daily Poutine is in Town Center area of Disney Springs, just west of the World of Disney and just north of Amorette’s Patisserie. If you’re driving to Disney Springs, the closest parking garage is the lime parking garage.
Poutine for me, poutine for you. . .
Poutine is a classic Canadian dish that features thick-cut french fries loaded with toppings such as cheese curds and beef gravy. Cheese curds and gravy not your thing? There are five varieties to choose from at The Daily Poutine. Diners looking to move beyond the classic can enjoy french fries with international flair. The French version is covered in mushroom cream sauce and Gruyere cheese while the Italian option includes mozzarella cheese and bolognese sauce. More adventurous diners may want to try the Latin version which features fried yucca instead of french fries and topped with black beans, pulled pork and queso fresco.
The most recent addition to the menu is the All-Day Breakfast. This hearty option features fried potato puffs, sausage gravy and cheddar cheese curds topped with a fried egg. Sounds like the breakfast of champions to me!
I’m a big mushroom fan, so I selected the French Poutine. The mushroom cream sauce was creamy and the Gruyere cheese gooey and delicious. The fries themselves were piping hot and had the perfect crisp-to-fluff ratio. No mushy or soggy fries here!
Beyond the savory offerings, The Daily Poutine showcases some unique beverages including a Fireball Sangria and Watermelon Lemonade. Based on the Cast Member’s recommendation, I purchased a Watermelon Lemonade slushy. While it started off tasty, the slushy quickly turned to a cup of flavorless ice chips. I’d recommend sticking to the basic Watermelon Lemonade.
There is no formal seating nearby, however, there are a few brick planters that serve as makeshift tables and chairs for diners. Of course folks can opt to eat on the go since the food is served in a sturdy cup–just be sure to grab a fork for the road. While french fries are traditionally a finger food, poutine definitely is not.
