Would You Eat This Big Mac Poutine?

Canada blessed us with our very own outpost of Smoke's Poutinerie in Hollywood last summer, offering not only traditional poutine—fries, covered in gravy and cheese curds—but several outrageous twists on poutine that your doctor most likely wouldn't approve of. The shop's motto is quite clear: "clogging arteries since 2008." Their newest monstrosity is the Mac Daddy Poutine, which is very clearly based on America's own artery clogger, the McDonald's Big Mac. The fries come drowning in the usual curds and gravy, plus ground beef, their own "Mac" sauce, lettuce, cheese sauce, pickles and sesame seeds, according to FoodBeast. Sing it with me!

It was intended to be a more limited run, but due to its popularity, they'll be serving Mac Daddy poutine through the end of the month, according to the shop's Facebook page. It should cost you about $10.
