Croquetas

Cubans eat croquetas at all hours of the day. A perfectly acceptable option for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack, it is simple to make but a bit laborious. While its preparation may sound lofty a croqueta is essentially a humble food made from leftover meat or seafood (ground meat or seafood blended with bechamel sauce, shaped, breaded, and then fried). I stumbled upon this โ€œcroqueta stationโ€ at paladar Starbien in Havana.
