Rocablanca is located on one of the main streets in the popular neighbourhood of Malasaña. It is the the kind of place you would probably not go in if you walked by, especially if you are a tourist. Actually, I never did so before until a friend told me that I just HAD to try their croquettes, and given how much I love croquettes I ran to see if they were as good as I had been told.
They offer croquettes with six different fillings: serrano ham —of course!—, mushrooms, cabrales cheese —a strong blue cheese from Asturias, in the north of Spain—, fried garlic shrimps, fried eggs with chorizo and salted cod.
Though croquettes are one of the most popular tapas, you can’t imagine how difficult it is to find a good one! These are huge, super creamy and tasty but, more importantly, they taste as what they should taste. Sounds weird but… did I mention how difficult it is to find a good croquette?
I have to admit that, after countless visits to Rocablanca, I have never eaten anything else except for their croquettes. And I will probably never do so, who knows; but hey, do tell us what the other food here is like, if you get a chance!
