In the Croquetten Boutique in Utrecht you can find all kinds of special croquets. There is plenty of choice; think of chicken curry, salmon and lemon pepper, jugged hare, apple and cinnamon, and mushroom. This specialised snack bar puts the typical Dutch snack in the spotlight, and because there are already so many standard snack bars, this one is furnished like a fancy boutique and has a classic look.
The croquettes that are served without a bun look like chic little bonbons in their pretty gold boxes
The croquettes that are served without a bun look like chic little bonbons in their pretty gold boxes, but those presented in a bun look just as delicious. The buns have also been specially designed together with a local baker. The croquettes have been made without artificial flavourings, aromas or preservatives and only contain fresh ingredients. The recipes took over a year to create. There is plenty of choice for lovers of meat and fish, and even for vegetarians. Nothing comes from the freezer, and there are certainly not any automat machines. Everything that you order is made in front of your eyes.
Owners Brian and Désiree definitely understand the Haute Friture trend. Because Dutch consumers are gaining more and more knowledge about food and therefore setting higher standards for food quality in general, haute friture snack bars are becoming a real trend. Top chefs like Ron Blaauw, Robert Kranenbourg and Sergio Herman are getting into deep-frying and are linking their names to delicious concepts such as the Haute Dog, the Frites Atelier and Thrill burgers. The Croquetten Boutique fits right in with this fry-tastic trend!
