Bread and Croquette 오군수제고로케: Huge Croquettes in Korea

Bread and Croquette

There is a little hidden gem in Hondgae. M and I wanted to go for some croquettes at Chilli cha cha but it was closed. His cousin told us there was a better and more famous place, so we headed there. We tried going at 2pm to see if they had any croquettes left, but unfortunately, they sold out.

I’m not exactly sure why Koreans go crazy over these croquettes, but they must be good to have 10+ people line up prior to them opening.

They open at 12pm and 4pm. They close when they sell out. Usually they sell out 30 minutes after they open. We came back at 3:45 and these was already a huge line up. As we were told it was the best, we just had to come eat the best. I clearly have an addiction to food when travelling.

Bread and Croquette

The interior is really small, so there is no room to sit especially when there is a huge line of people waiting to get to the counter.

They have a ton of different croquette flavours:

  • Kimchi
  • Curry
  • Red Bean with walnuts
  • Cream cheese
  • Plain Potato

They also have other items like hot dogs and twist bread. Everything is fried in grape seed oil and the oil is changed daily to keep everything fresh and delicious.

The croquettes are the most popular item and you can see people leave with bags and bags of these.

We ordered a bunch as we wanted to try all the flavours, but we couldn’t finish them in one day. The first flavour that we tried was the curry.

It’s nicely fried on the outside.

The inside was packed with the potato and curry mixture. Really good! I had one and I was full. It’s not exactly authentic to Japanese croquettes, but they have their Korean twist to their croquettes.

All of the flavours were good, but I would come back for the curry and kimchi flavours.
