So I received an email from La Poutine in the University area of Edmonton. They wanted to let the Celiac community know that they do have a gluten free poutine.
Their gluten free gravy also happens to be vegan. Both their cheese curds and vegan cheese curds are also gluten free, along with their french fries.
Customers wanting to have the gluten free gravy for their poutine should specify so to the cashier.

We decided to order a traditional and a Quebecois which comes with Montreal Smoked meat. I'll admit, we were bad because didn't ask if the smoked meat was gluten free or not, but it just seemed like a great choice. We did hesitate to order any of the options that had pepperoni or sausages because I wanted to check with the owners via email first. I'm still waiting to hear back, so I will update this when I do.
What we had was so good. Our eyes were certainly bigger than our stomaches that afternoon. We decided to order 2 larges, because we thought, "Well, this is our lunch". Amanda just made it through half of hers before tapping out, and I way over ate, eating about 3/4 of mine. But it was worth it, and so tasty. What a great option for some comfort food with a twist.
