Mile End Delicatessen in Brooklyn is a Jewish deli, styled after delis in Montreal, specializing in smoked meat. The affordable dinner menu gets right to the point and is short and sweet, including some classic deli foods. Unfortunately, they were out of the matzo ball soup on the evening my dining companion and I ate here. But here is what we were able to sample:
The classic poutine, french fries with cheese curds and gravy, a very Canadian dish. If you like poutine, this one is salty and delicious. Some of the fries are still crispy while others are smothered in the gravy. I liked that the cheese isn't totally melted and some of the curds are still whole.
Some have lamented that the portions here aren't large enough. But it seems that they've just become to accustomed to the disgustingly oversized portions at other delis because Mile End's serving sizes are perfectly appropriate and filling.
