Where To Eat Poutine (Late Night) in Seattle

Crisp, golden french fries... Melty cheese... A healthy slathering of rich gravy…. O Canada, we have thee to thank for this savory delicacy. Since our friends to the north (Quebec, specifically) first dared to dream up this trifecta of comfort foods, poutine has migrated across the border and into American hearts and kitchens. Those who have already devoured a plateful may find themselves fork-deep in a new snacking habit... And for those who haven’t tried a bite: It’s time to feed your soul with a hot, tasty mess. Though poutine is satisfying at any hour, its ultra-savory flavors are especially craveworthy late at night (drunchies, anyone?). Here’s where to chow down after dark in Seattle.

The Angry Beaver | 8412 Greenwood Ave N | 206-782-6044

A roundup of the Emerald City’s late-night poutine would be woefully incomplete without a shout-out to the city’s only Canadian hockey-themed bar. Its homage to the country includes piles upon piles of poutine. Each rendition features hand-cut fries, local Beecher’s cheese curds, and any of the following homemade gravy options: beef, curry, mushroom, or turkey. Can’t pick just one? Try a poutine flight with your choice of three. Alternatively, mix it up by adding poutine as a burger topping. Open until 2 a.m.

The Gerald | 5210 Ballard Ave NW | 206-432-9280

The Gerald’s fan-favorite classic poutine features all the essentials: Hand-cut fries, housemade gravy, and fresh cheese curds, all topped with diced red onion and parsley. If you’re there on a weekend and fancy a breakfast-for-dinner fixin’, opt for the breakfast poutine, which subs sausage gravy and includes an egg cooked to your heart’s content (hint: try it fried… oozing yolks do wonders for this dish). Open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and late close Mondays through Thursdays.


Witness | 410 Broadway E | 206-329-0248

Capitol Hill’s Witness is serving up Southern hospitality in the form of regionally inspired cuisine. How do you make a Canadian classic down-home? Add bacon gravy, a heaping dollop of spicy pimento cheese, and even more bacon. Piled high on your plate, the Dixie Poutine is a sight and snack to behold, and it’s just what you’ll need after enjoying a few craft cocktails from the bar. Just be sure to get your fill before 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 1 a.m. every other day.
