I say Lancashire invented it : chips, cheese, gravy. Solid fodder. None of this Montréal invented it nonsense.

I don't care who invented it. I'm just happy that it was invented!! Same goes for chips cheese and curry sauce 😍 I discovered that gem when I lived in Wales!

It’s cheese curds in Montreal though!

I grew up in Lancashire and had chips and gravy almost daily at high school (before the days of healthy school dinners). I never encountered cheesy chips and gravy til I moved to wales though

The cheese is a newish addition i think?

The cheesey gravy chip has been a staple food in Northern Ireland since pussycat s a kitten 😆

There ain't no cheese curds in Lancashire.

FFS! Since pussy was a kitten, that should read!

Yes. Because it's not the same thing.

Well no, I ate chips cheese and gravy in the North East growing up, but that's not poutine.
Poutine has cheese curds.

As much as I love chips, cheese and gravy - and as others have said - it isn't poutine.

As others have said, not the same thing.

Cheese chips and gravy is better though, imo.

Cheese, chips and gravy is ok, but Parmo it ain't.
