I have heard a lot about the famed boar poutine at the Tide & Boar Gastro Pub (@TideandBoar) in Moncton. Yeah, you heard me. Boar. Poutine. That’s French fries covered with cheese curds, gravy and braised boar.
If you’re like me, you probably don’t need to read the rest of this post. You just want to head to Moncton to get some for yourself. But in case you’re still reading, I’ll let you know that the boar poutine costs $16, but has enough meat to make it a worthy meal, that it pairs really well with a pint of Picaroons Timber Hog stout and if you can lift your head up from your plate long enough to look around you might even enjoy the trendy atmosphere with the portraits of 60s music legends on the walls.
I even noticed other patrons’ meals that looked appetizing (including a charcuterie board which also has boar). They were named one of the 50 best restaurants in Canada back in October, so I trust that they have great food all around, but if I go back I already know what I’ll be getting.
Tide and Boar has a beer line-up that is small but mighty. In addition to Celtic Knot, they have seasonal selections from Picaroons and a curated list of bottled beer from around the world.
