I admit, I am a fried food junkie. And even if you’re not, you will be once you try the Potato Croquettes at Delica rf-1 at the Ferry Building Marketplace in San Francisco. If you’re there, you HAVE to make a stop at this Japanese Delicatessen.
These guys know how to do fried food right. And some of their other snacks, meals, and salads aren’t too shabby either!
My pal and I decided to treat ourselves to a tasty Japanese snack and got the legendary Potato Croquette and a Tofu Steak with Thick Miso Sauce to share.
Perfectly crisp on the outside and wonderfully flavorful on the inside, I’ve heard from others that these potato croquettes are better than even some you can get in Japan! The panko breadcrumbs are made fresh daily from ACME pain de mie bread, and it makes all the difference. The ultra light crisp breading on these things is absolute heaven. And some croquettes are just a wad of bland potato. Not this one. It’s like having flavorful garlic and onion mashed potatoes. It’s simply the best potato croquette you’ll ever have.
The tofu steak was definitely something to write home about, too! The medium firm tofu steak was perfectly smooth and tender. And the sauce was sweet, savory, and full of great texture from the green onion, bamboo shoots, shallots, and pine nuts. I never knew anything vegan could ever taste so good!
There is so much care and attention that goes into all the dishes they make at Delica, and it shows in spades. One visit and you’ll be hooked.
