Located in the ever so popular Anaheim Packing District is The Kroft. They specialize in elegant sandwiches and poutines. Poutine is a Canadian dish composed of fries, cheese curds, gravy, and some MEAT. The line was long, but the people were enthusiastic. The clamor all throughout the line was about the short rib poutine ($10). I decided to be a sheep and ordered the short rib poutine with a cucumber mint lemonade ($3.50).
The first sip of the lemonade made me feel like there was a party in my mouth and everyone was invited. Super sour, very cucumbery, and a hint of mint. A bit of a small size for $4, but it’s worth a try. The poutine was massive. I was expecting a tiny box of fries but it’s big enough to share. Within the tiny box lies a variety of flavors. The slightly sour pickled unions, creamy cheese curds, rich gravy, and crispy fries were delicious. However, the braised short rib was nothing to write home about. The meat was stringy and a little too fatty for my taste. The loco moco poutine sounded like a better idea in hindsight. Could have been a 4/5 if the short rib was executed better.
