Craving a crispy croquette? Then look no further than Hanayori Kiyoe in Nishiki Market, Kyoto.

The store uses high-quality olive oil to fry their croquettes, and serves unique flavors that are sure to please. If you’re a matcha fan try the matcha chicken croquette, although our personal favorite is the yuba (tofu skin) croquette. The yuba croquette, along with the grilled corn croquette are good vegetarian-friendly options for any plant-based folks exploring Nishiki Market.
