Other Things to Note
What is the Packing House?
The Anaheim Packing House is a favorite place among locals and tourists and it's always a blast to visit. This is basically a building that functions as a food court--there are so many different vendors that, no matter what you're craving, you're sure to find something you like. I love how there's such a diverse availability of cuisines all under one roof.
The Packing House is family friendly. You will always see a lot of families inside the building, hanging out or just grabbing a bite to eat.
Some recommendations to eat at the Packing House:
The Kroft: Try their legendary poutine. They're downstairs. They feature market-inspired sandwiches and variations of poutine--Canadian-French specialty fries topped with fresh cheese curds, homemade gravies and signature toppings. The fries from this place are absolutely phenomenal because they're made from hand-cut potatoes that are double fried to perfection. Those fries are seriously one of the bests I've ever had; they taste so fresh and The Kroft doesn't skimp when it comes to portion size, flavors and toppings. You definitely get your money's worth. You could order those poutines as a meal or share it with a friend if you want to try stuff from other vendors. I was a huge fan of "Chicken Pot Pie" and "Fried Chicken" poutines are savory and flavorful.
Popbar: This is a great dessert/snack option--especially when it's hot outside--because it's basically gelato, sorbet or yogurt on a stick. Think of your favorite childhood treat redefined. You get to choose your flavor, as well as the dippings and toppings.
The Chippy Fish & Grill: There is nothing but good things about this place, especially if you're a huge fan of fish and chips. This fish grill prides itself on high-quality ingredients and fresh fish. Of course, the specialty is the fish and chips, featuring a crisp, golden brown crust and lemon, malt vinegar and homemade tartar sauce for extra flavor.Georgia's: Real deal Southern-style comfort food. Try the fried chicken as well as the BBQ pork ribs. You also can't go wrong with soul-smothered chicken and some of those Brazilian-fusion entrees.
The Iron Press: This place is known for its sweet and savory waffle sandwiches with dozens of beers on tap. Check out their featured waffle desserts.
Hans' Homemade Ice Cream: All of the ice cream is handcrafted onsite at the original Santa Ana store. There are few flavors that you must try. Cookies & Cream, Pecan Praline, and "Maple Bacon. Yum!
Black Sheep Grilled Cheese Bar: If you love all things grilled cheese, you need to go to Black Sheep because it's a grilled cheese bar! Comparing other units in the area? Here are top 10 Reasons why you should at the Kraemer Building:
