Corn Croquette - Marukai
Occassionally, Marukai will have specialty vendors come in and share their goodies with us. This is a Japanese style corn croquette. I think it's made with potatoes (mashed or pureed) and corn (or other things like bacon, cheese, tako (octopus), shrimp....), then breaded with panko and fried. I got two of these for about $2, so a bit pricey but a nice treat since it's not always available.
I had this with my Paina Cafe tomato bisque. Oh my! YUM! Especially on these cold Hawaiian days (yes, yes, 60F/20C is not cold to the rest of the world, but it is to us! Live here for a few years, you'll see what I mean).
