Gravy Train Poutinerie: Food Truck of the Week

With P'tit Soleil now open serving more than 10 kinds of poutine, and the trend going strong in restaurants and bars everywhere, it's only natural that a truck slinging the Quebecois staple should hit the streets. Canadian expats Tum Cohl and Evan Goldberg (who happens to be a writing and producing partner of Seth Rogan, who is in no way involved with this project but surely loves poutine), moved here for the movie and music biz, but missed their comfort food from Montreal. So they started serving French fries and cheese curds smothered in gravy on movie sets around town, and jumped into the gourmet truck fray with The Gravy Train Poutinerie a few months ago.

You'll find traditional poutine made with a bacon-laced gravy, but also a vegetarian version with a creamy garlic gravy, poutine sliders (everything on a bun), and specials like pulled pork sliders with aioli. What's not to love? For dessert, cross your fingers they have nanaimo bars, a Canadian sweet layered cookie treat, on the truck. This weekend you'll find the Gravy Train in Granada Hills on Friday night, and at the Hester Street Fair's Indie Night Market in Hollywood on Saturday.
