About

Poutine Brothers is bringing Canada's national dish, poutine, to California and nationwide through its partnership with Goldbelly. What is poutine, you ask? It's a base of double-fried french fries with cheese curds and brown gravy, created entirely from homemade ingredients. Poutine Brothers source their cheese curds from Wisconsin (since the U.S.A doesn't allow them to import unpasteurized Canadian curds.) Poutine Brothers has a unique position in the SoCal market and beyond with creative takes on traditional poutine: a melt-in-your-mouth beef short rib poutine, poutine with an Indian twist (topped with tikka masala chicken) and their take on a Canadian smoked pork poutine. Poutine Brothers even has the vegan community covered, with 3 alternating vegan options such as "Parmesan"-roasted cauliflower poutine topped with vegan gravy. The majority of the Poutine Brothers menu is gluten-free, too.

Founding Story

Poutine Brothers was founded by Chris and Matt Urakami, two brothers who grew up playing club hockey and frequently touring throughout Canada. Imagine being a young boy and discovering a meal in which french fries are a key ingredient... it was love at first bite. They developed the concept for Poutine Brothers as adults, and after a test run among friends, realized they had a business opportunity on their hands. They promptly quit their corporate jobs in marketing and accounting, and Poutine Brothers was born.
