Ville de Croquette - A Croquette Shop Offer Uniquely Crumbed Delights
VILLE DE CROQUETTE - Kyoto Rokkakudori is the first Kyoto location of this famous Kanazawa croquette shop.
With Nishiki Market right nearby and the option to dine-in or take-out, Ville de Croquette makes for maybe one of the best places in downtown to grab a bite on the road.
While the shape of the croquettes sticks to a classic long, thing style, the surrounding breadcrumbs and center fillings are bursting with new and interesting takes.
The breadcrumbs are made of two types of wheat gluten called bubuarare and kurumabu, with the first being small sprinkles and the latter round pieces.
The croquettes are also fried to order so you'll be able to enjoy the unique breadcrumbs at their crunchiest!
With this new Kyoto location, Ville de Croquette has added an eat-in space to one of their stores for the first time.
The color scheme of the restaurant is notably dark, giving it a cool, relaxingly chic vibe.
Ville de Croquette also serves beer and wine, and for ¥450 extra, you can add a salad, soup, and slice of rye baguette to any croquette.
The croquettes come out beautifully plated as well, like they're a single dish of a full course meal.
Ville de Croquette has 10 types of croquettes in total. Among these, there are four that are available for take-out.
This is a Japanese croquette-version of the Sicilian and Neapolitan classic, arancini.
The mozzarella cheese inside the arancini is spiced with black pepper, which goes well with the basil sauce drizzled on the croquette.
This is not a normal croquette – it’s a premium croquette.
Chicken and Burdock
Ville de Croquette's chicken and burdock croquette is popular among tourists.
The croquette is served with white dashi mousse and chili sauce, giving it an incredible look.
The breadcrumbs are made of kurumabu, fried wheat gluten, and the filling is made of a classic Japanese pairing, chicken and burdock root.

Croquette of Five Colors
One of the special things about this Croquette of Five Colors is how colorful the breadcrumbs are.
The breadcrumbs are made from bubuarare, and the filling contains gorojimakintoki sweet potatoes and northern prawn.
While this croquette may look rather cute, it's actually surprisingly filling. This croquette can be ordered to go and the restaurant will top it with white dashi mousse right in front of you.

This croquette is somewhat unusual; it's a croquette that's also a dessert.
The filling is made of egg, wheat, and mashed potato, giving it a natural sweetness that pairs well with the black sesame seeds inside the breadcrumbs.
Served with a drizzle of maple syrup and dollop of whipped cream, this croquette is recommended to those with a sweet tooth.
