Friends with Benefit are always good when there’s no strings attached. Of course, even Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake couldn’t help developing feelings for each other. Luckily, there is Frites – Fries with Benefits. Frites is newly opened in Vancouver Downtown Entertainment & Clubbing District. It is the first of the franchise to break ground in Vancouver. Open late nights from Thursday to Saturday until 4am in the morning. So you are sure to find yourself a Double Layered Poutine with all the works when hunger pangs!
Frites offers authentic Belgian Fries that are locally sourced and hand cut fresh daily. You can custom design your choice of gourmet sauces, seasonings and toppings. My favorite is Cajun and Sriracha. Rosemary Garlic isn’t too shabby either.
Currently, SocialShopper is offering a limited time deal for $9 for 2 Deluxe Poutines, Choice of Pulled Pork, Beef Chili or Bacon Mushroom at FRITES (Value $17.98). How’s that for Friends with Benefits? We were told both the Traditional made with double layer of Canadian cheese curds with classic poutine gravy is still their most popular item.
Pulled Pork Deluxe Poutine: Pulled pork shoulder with Mesquite BBQ sauce. We liked the sweet, smoky flavors and the soft pull pork. I only found it slightly salty. But had there been a nice chilled beer, I think it would’ve been perfect!
Bacon Mushroom Deluxe Poutine: Fresh bacon bites & sliced mushroom. This was our favorite of the two.
We liked how the poutine was made fresh and piping hot. Also, the amount of toppings is quite generous. We definitely enjoyed an equal amount of fries to bacon ratio!
