Crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside, and delicious all over.

Creamy meat ragu encapsulated in a breadcrumb crust; the croquette is one of Holland’s traditional dishes. It’s a popular snack, so you can imagine the specialty restaurant Wilde Kroketten has amassed a following. The restaurant makes all the croquettes in their kitchen, and the menu offers unique selections such as cola marinated chicken as well as lemon and mayonnaise langoustine. Pairing beer or wine with menu items gives customers a culinary experience unlike most others. From October, the store will be offering a five-course croquette menu, and we wait with bated breath as a simple snack climbs to the rank of gourmet cuisine.
