Poutine is a Quebecois thing, so I'm not surprised it hasn't made its 
way to Vancouver. I am, however, very surprised it's made its way to 
Redondo Beach.

Even here in northern Vermont (I live about 20 miles from the Quebec 
border), poutine isn't very common, though more restaurants are adding it.

What's easier to find in a lot of other parts of the US is gravy & 
cheese fries -- very similar to poutine, except that the cheese is 
melted mozzarella, jack, or cheddar instead of cheese curds.

In Quebec, you can get poutine at McDonald's. And it's actually not bad.
