A croquette takes many forms around the world. For me, they’re long crispy potato sticks and for Belgians, they’re just deep fried cheese! However, in Amsterdam...they’re deep fried beef or vegetable stew! (much like a bitterballen!) The contrast between the crispy breadcrumbed exterior and the hot smouldering inside makes for the ultimate lunchtime filler (it is sometimes served with toast to spread the croquettes on) and a good way to soak up all the Heineken you’ll be drinking!
