Usually in any tapas bar, you will find our Spanish Croquettes. The most common ones are Spanish cured ham, cheese flavours, and sometimes you do see some special ones like Roast Chicken ones in Tapas 24, Smoked Salmon ones in Ciudad Condal, etc.

But in this little shop hiding at the corner of Mercat de la Boqueria selling duck products, they actually have some really distinct and marvellous croquettes being served here.

Actually I was first attracted to try the Duck Ham because it is so rare to have duck ham on sale. I came and ordered a portion of Pa amb Tomaquet Pernil Anec (3.50 euros) and a glass of red (3.70 euros) just to chill for a while. The Pa amb Tomaquet Pernil Anec (Duck Ham on Tomato Bread) was absolutely very tasty. It was my first ever experience to taste duck ham. Thy smoked duck flavour is so strong that you will immediately know it is duck even with a blindfold on. The duck fat was flavourful and honestly it just dissolve in your taste buds immediately. The only thing is that with the fiber of the duck meat being so different from pork, the duck breast meat can be a little chewy. The tomato bread is served cool but the baguette slices are extremely fresh that it is crunchy on the crust but really fluffy and airy inside. It definitely worths a try.

For the croquettes, they have so many amazing flavours including gourmet series priced at 0.90 euros each such as Foie and Mushrooms, Rabbit and Mushrooms, Gorgonzala and Walnuts, Faisan and Truffle, Spinach and Goat Cheese, Blood Sausage and Maho Cheese, together with homemade series priced at 0.70/unit such as Roast Meat, Spanish Iberico Ham, and Cod and Mushrooms. They just have so many!!!! They have a deal where you can pay 2.95 euros and enjoy two gourmet and two homemade croquettes. I was so attracted to try the gourmet ones and I was only going to order 3 gourmet croquettes. Though the lady taking my order was so friendly to me that she let me choose one of the homemade croquette and she would let me do the 2.95 euros deal too. How lovely!

(btw I was so shocked to find out that they charge around 2.5 euros (HKD 25) for one iberico Ham Croquette in Catalunya Hong Kong. I guess I must try it out one day to see how wow it is.)

So at the end I ended up with Foie and Mushroom, Rabbit and Mushrooms, Faisan and Truffle and Spanish Iberico Ham.

For the Foie and Mushroom one, the mushroom kind of dominate the flavour but you can taste a hint of the foie. Faisan and Truffle has an outstanding truffle aroma and you can see tiny bits of black pots inside the croquette. I was so nervous to try the Rabbit and Mushroom one but it actually turned out pretty good. The rabbit meat has a roasty flavour and it is a little like a combination of chicken and lamb to me. I left the safest Iberico Ham one as my last one just in case I didnt like the rabbit croquette. I was not expecting much surprise but in fact they ham was so flavoursome, mouth watering  and meaty. The distinct flavour of Iberico Ham stands out so much that you know it must be Iberico and not any other cured ham. Also I must say the texture of all the croquettes are perfect. The crust is so crispy, light and fragile, where potato inside is really fluffy and soft. They were seriously finger-licking good. It has to be the best croquettes I have tried to far!

The Curry Seasoned Almonds came free and it was very nice to have it with my wine.

Don't miss this place out!!
