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

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 / ￥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.
How to buyCheck out the menu board on the wall written in English. For takeout, place your order at the counter, and they will prepare them for you. The croquets are packaged very nicely with open bag to refrain from being soggy from steam. Well thought out to best savor the crispiness of croquets even for take outs.

Order several croquets to go! Say "omochikaeri onegaishimasu," meaning, "take-out please".
