Rankin Inlet

At the start of my travels I was in Rankin Inlet for meetings and got to see folks that I haven't seen since the last AGM meetings. A couple of photos from the trip below.

A look through the filthy window at the Co-op hotel. Nice rooms and restaurant. I think they are the only restaurant in the north that serves a Maritime Poutine. Fries, gravy, ketchup, onions, poutine cheese, hamburger all mixed together. Yummy.

The famous Inikshuk in Rankin Inlet. Nice silhouette photo. The sun is hiding just behind the right leg. Here is a photo taken when I was in Rankin Inlet about two years ago.

Have you ever eaten at "The Snack" in Iqaluit? They have something called the Snack poutine and I think it is exactly like how you described the Maritime poutine. It's heaven!

somewhere on the coast of BC this summer (in a community that houses quite an enclave of newfies) I saw newfie poutine on the menu and actually saw a plate of it go by :: french fries, cheese curds, turkey stuffing and turkey. Made my chest hurt just to look at it.

Haven't ate at The Snack yet. To many horror stories of greese and greese doesn't settle well with me anymore.

Now that I know I'm going to try it out. I've been in love with the danish back ribs at the Froberser Inn restaurant for a while.

Don't know if I would like the dish with turkey stuffing in it but I would try anything once.
