Chips, cheese, gravy: what’s not to like?
 
For all London-based or visiting fans of Canadian cuisine not involving moose steaks, the Lyceum Tavern on the Strand serves poutine (attempted to post a picture, am fule and cannot make it work, sorry). 
 

(Ed: Here is the pic, but follow the link too)

According to a genuine Canadian who happened to be available to our research team, the dish provided by this fine Sam Smith’s establishment was lacking in authenticity.  It’s all about the curd cheese, apparently, and plastic Cheddar just don’t cut the moutarde.  It was, however, quite tasty, and a good safety blanket for standing around drinking beer and listening to bands play later in the evening.
