Korokke: A Japanese Take on a French Favorite

You may recognize a croquette as a classic French food. With that in mind, why should you find such a dish in our Lynnwood Japanese restaurant? The truth is that the “potato croquette” was first introduced to Japan as a French dish in the early twentieth century. It quickly grew in popularity and, throughout the years, the Japanese people adapted it from its original form. Today, the “korokke” is widely recognized as a distinctly Japanese take on a familiar European taste.

A korokke is made from meat, vegetables, or other foods mixed into a ball of mashed potatoes. This mixture is formed into a patty shape, breaded, and deep fried. Try one for yourself at Wild Wasabi!
