Dos Croquetas — the popular on demand croqueta company — is going brick and mortar with its first permanent location next week. Called Dos Croquetas Croqueta Bar (10505 SW 40th Street) it’ll feature the company’s unique croquetas alongside beer and wine options.
“We wanted to do something different,” says founder Alec Fernandez. “We firmly believe that walking into the Croqueta Bar should feel like something you can’t get anywhere else, and I think we created just that with this new location.”
The bright, Miami-inspired space, complete with tropical paintings by Chalk & Brush and pink neon light fixtures, features a croqueta menu with croquetas made with items like Cuban style picadillo, sweet plantains, and queso blanco, to mac ’n’ cheese and bacon, Mexican street corn, buffalo chicken and even dessert croquetas like the Oreo or guava.
To wash all those croquetas back, guests can order beers from different local breweries like Lincoln’s Beard Brewing Co., The Tank Brewing, Concrete Beach Brewery, along with its own house beer made by MIA Beer Company. For those looking to indulge in something sweet, the Croqueta Bar will also feature a Shake Bar with creations such as a “The Cuban Dole Whip,” which includes pineapple, vanilla ice cream and condensed milk.
The counter-service space debuts to the public on May 10. Once open it’ll be open Sunday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to midnight and Friday and Saturday until 2 a.m.
