While it’s hard to mess up a poutine, it’s also not easy to master one. Unless you’re Willy’s. Staffer Jean-Michel Beaudoin says that’s because his boss is all about food quality and top notch ingredients. “Nothing out of the window is something that’s half-assed, he wants it to be delicious and for a good price,” says Beaudoin.This purveyor of fried food is a trademark spot for longtime Haligonians, but he says its curds-and-gravy combo makes it an attraction from out-of-towners, too. “So many times visitors will come and tell me that everywhere they went people told them to come see us—and it’s cool because we’re not a fancy restaurant, we’re a window.”
