This unique restaurant specializes in Kurimu Korokke or "cream croquettes," which are béchamel sauce-based croquettes with various ingredients and flavors, such as beef tendon, crab, sea urchin, beef tongue, lobster, cheese, and more. What sets their croquettes apart is that they are not deep-fried but grilled using a convection oven.

Their appetizer is delicious and photogenic, making it a popular choice among customers. Sixteen small appetizers are beautifully arranged on a square plate, providing a feast for both your eyes and taste buds. In addition to the croquettes, the menu also includes options such as beef steak, multi-grain boiled rice, and miso soup to round out your meal.

Unfortunately, this restaurant will close permanently in March 2023 for unknown reasons. However, the owner has mentioned the possibility of reopening in the near future.

Overall, this restaurant's unique take on cream croquettes and beautiful presentation make for a memorable dining experience. If you have the chance to visit before they close, be sure to try their delicious dishes.

This is the place I have always wanted to go to on this day.
I visited “Kurikoro”!

It is one of the most difficult to reserve restaurants in the Nagoya Western food industry.
This store will temporarily close at the end of March.
Because we don't know if it will reopen.
I had given up thinking that I would never be able to go again.
Eating friends bring companions
I heard that you are recruiting.
I immediately raised my hand and agreed, and the visit came true!

The shop is a 10-minute walk from Imaike subway station.
Located in a residential area, the signboard is small.

The menu is a set course.
Cream croquettes can be added for an additional charge.

Assorted appetizers
A gorgeous assortment of 16 types!
Normally I would have to remember each item one by one.
My mediocre memory says everything
I couldn't remember (lol)
However, all of them seem to go well with alcohol.
I felt like I could drink wine forever with this one plate!
I especially like meat and cheese seasonings.
Roast beef has a black truffle aroma
I felt rich!

The miso soup is made with a good amount of dashi stock.
It's deep and delicious!

The dessert pudding is
Firm on the outside and soft on the inside
Not much bitterness, just the flavor and sweetness of eggs.
It was distinctive!

Although it is in the category of Western food restaurant.
The concept of cream croquettes is very comprehensive.
There were so many different dishes!

Now, perhaps this is the long-awaited Kurikoro.
Last visit!
I left the store with regret.
If you ask me, after the store closes, it will be available at locations other than physical stores.
Because I can start something new
I'm looking forward to your future endeavors!

Thank you for the meal!
