I’ve never tried Poutine, but I can imagine how good it can taste (I must try do it) :)
About your conversation: I can understand that you can be disappointed with the reaction of people, but I think it is mater of taste. I live in Scotland, where Black Pudding and Haggis are national dish. There is a lot of people who just love those things. But most of the people from outside making big eyes when they find out what is inside :) I tried Haggis - not really tasty, but I will never even try to smell Black Pudding…
Ps. Swedes have a sweet cream cace with salted herrings inside. Some Swiss eat dogs :)

While I am no Anthony Bordain, I pride myself in enjoying many cuisines, including Hawai’ian, Cajun, Vietnamese, and of course general menus of Asian, Italian and Mexican origin...and of course the good ol’ American Cheeseburger.)

> Jason: I mean, I liked it and all. I’d...just rather have French fries...from, like, McDonald’s, or something.
> Me: *making excited gestures with my hands* Let me see your passport. Are you really from Canada? Born and raised?
> Jason: Yup. I just don’t see the big deal we Canucks make about it.
> Me: *jaw drops* Really.
