Nothing says French Canadian casual fare than poutine and Montreal smoked meat. Myer Dunn founded the “Dunn’s Famous” back in 1927, which as grown into a national smoked meat empire. The very first Western Canadian location recently opened in Vancouver and is now serving up their traditional favourites.
Dunn’s smoked meat starts off with a beef brisket that has been smoked for 17 hours and then steamed for 3 hours before serving. It’s served on light rye sourdough bread, hand sliced with special brine.
There are also six different poutine options on the menu. For those who have never had poutine, it’s French fries, topped with cheese curds and then covered with gravy. There are also other Western Canadian influences on the menu including a motzoh ball soup.
Dunn’s Famous Restaurant is open 7 days per week, from 10:00am until midnight, and 1:00am on weekends.
