Bacon, Blue Cheese, Dry Fruits, or Pickles…combined for unique freshly fried croquets!


/ 西冨家
Opened in 2012, Nishitomiya specializes in croquets showcasing various croquets displayed in front of the restaurant. You will be amazed at the choices of croquets they offer. There are croquets with ingredients that match so perfectly but are rarely made elsewhere such as dry fruits and walnuts croquets. The ambience inside is like a western café or a bar unlike a traditional croquet shop. You can also see the whole action of croquet making process occurring behind the counters.

Croquets are fried to order and very crispy! I really liked the Bacon & Mustard one. Who would have thought bacon and mustard in croquets taste so good? I’m just amazed of the combinations of ingredients at Nishitomiya. Definitely grab some to go when you have a chance!
They have a variety of unique croquets that you can’t get anywhere else. I hope you will try different kinds! Please enjoy the hot and freshly fried croquets. Inside is stylish, and the staff is very nice!
Bacon & Mustard
Recommend !
Bacon & Mustard / ¥210
What an incredible match! Not only bacon goes well with croquets, but mustard gives it the final kick that tops everything off. These croquets are a no-doubter if you love bacon. Absolutely no sauce is needed in these croquets because they are well seasoned.
Blue Cheese
Recommend !
Blue Cheese / ¥220
Simply delicious, blue cheese is melted inside barrel shaped croquets. Breaded with Panco (Japanese bread crumbs), the croquets are so crispy and delightful that eating just one is not enough at all.
