Have you been participating in the Poutine Indulgence event this month? You’ve got until the end of March to sample poutine from ten participating restaurants. Here are the details: 

 

The Museum of Work and Culture is hosting the seventh annual Poutine Indulgence competition throughout the month of March as part of its Francophonie events celebrating French culture in Rhode Island. Ticket holders can travel to ten participating restaurants around Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts to sample the poutine. Then, vote for your favorite on the museum’s website between March 20 and April 1. The winner will be announced during the annual Salute to Spring event on Sunday, April 2. Newcomers this year include Black Sheep of Providence, Black restaurant in Woonsocket and Savini’s Pomodoro in Woonsocket, all putting out their best poutine. They’ll face some stiff competition, though. Adeline’s Speakeasy Kitchen Bar in Cumberland returns this year after claiming the title three years running through 2021, and Friskie Fries in Johnston and Providence is always a fan favorite. Ciro’s Tavern in Woonsocket, KG Kitchen Bar in Providence, Poutine Peddlers in Taunton, Mass., Red’s Kitchen in Seekonk, Mass., and Ming’s Sando Bar in Pawtucket are also returning to the competition this year.

The competition lasts through the month of March, and voting will take place between March 20 and April 1.
