Every time I’ve eaten there, French Canadian tourists are all over Dairy Belle (312 E Dania Beach Boulevard, Dania Beach). So If they’re here, that must mean only one thing; the poutine brought them.
Before we get to the poutine, let’s talk about dogs and burgers. I’m not too fond of anything dragged through the salad, much less my dogs.
Still, Chicagoans do, and this appeared to be an exceptional representation of a Chicago Dog. It did not have a poppyseed bun, but hey, you can’t get everything in life.
The Michigan Dog was passable with its spaghetti meat sauce, which resembles a sludgy chili. However, I did add some yellow mustard to brighten up the taste a bit.
I enjoyed the double cheeseburger. There is something old school about how it looks and eating in this outdoor setting adds to it—excellent job on that one, Dairy Belle.
Dairy Belle Poutine Talk
And the dish of the hour, hailing from North of the United States, is POUTINEEEEE!!!
Poutine is a Canadian dish with three components: fries, cheese curds, and brown gravy. You can mostly find poutine in the Northern United States, and there’s the U.S. version called Disco Fries with mozzarella replacing the cheese curds.
The poutine was great. The curds were squeaky, the gravy thickish, and the fries perfectly fried. If they switched to fresh-cut potatoes, this poutine would be off the charts.
And how was the Ice Cream at Dairy Belle? How would I know? I didn’t have any, lol.
