Biggie Baguette is a Canadian-style sandwich restaurant in Newport Beach. What you want to order here is the poutine. It’s offered in its most basic form, with the fries hot, the gravy thin and, most important, the cheese curds slightly squeaky. The solitary counterman will take the already par-fried French fries from a fridge, throw them into a tiny deep fryer for crisping, distribute a handful of Wisconsin-sourced cheese curds on top, ladle a savory brown gravy from a precariously placed pot, and then shake a final flurry of pepper on top. It’s starchy, salty, fatty—the kind of meal you eat without thinking about it too much, except it’s the exact thing you crave when it’s cold out and you’ve had too much to drink.
