When a restaurant names a dish after one of the better stoner movies of all time, you just know it’s going to be good. The Harold & Kumar poutine at the Rabbit Hole lives up to its name. This rib-sticking combination of unlikely bedfellows will satisfy even the most raging case of the munchies and make you happy whether you’re clean and sober, high as a kite, or between tipsy and drunk.
If poutine strikes you as just a messy pile of sodden fries drowned in gloppy gravy, this Korean/Indian/Mexican riff on the Canadian classic is about to blow your mind.
It all starts with the house-cut fries. Chef and owner Thomas Kim is a self-professed fry fanatic, and these beauties are thick cut and cooked to crispy perfection, giving them a crunchy exterior that can stand up to a blanket of rich pork curry gravy. Kimchi and caramelized onions add spice and sweetness, while Parmesan and cheddar contribute a comforting cheesiness. It’s all topped off with an earthy chipotle aioli and a soft poached egg. Harold and Kumar would be proud.
