Best Poutine in San Francisco
Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen Jasper's attacks poutine in an interesting way: by giving you choices. Offered on their "Fries Menu," diners can choose between thin cut, thick cut, and sweet potato fries. The choose-your-own-poutine adventure doesn't end there, as you can season the fries with sea salt; smoked paprika; garlic, salt, and pepper; or truffle, parmesan, and herb. Lastly, there are the actual poutine options of topping the fries with brown gravy with mushroom, smoked cheese fondue, or a "chef's choice," which is similar to a salsa topping. In a traditional-enough version with thin fries seasoned with sea salt and topped with brown gravy and mushrooms, the fries were crisp and nicely cooked, and the salty beef gravy was a nice thickness.
