Bite-Sized Spanish Goodness By Oy! Croqueta


April 6, 2018 | BY Philippine Tatler

Oy! Croqueta introduces Spanish croqueta with a local twist to the general public

In its humble yet festively designed booth in SM Mall of Asia, Oy! Croqueta serves up croquetas but tailored to the taste of the Filipino market. Inside the crunchy outer layer is rice in flavours we all know and love.


Look out for the paella croqueta, which puts together the best of Spanish and Filipino cuisines. Imagine the taste of lechon or adobong pusit, then combine it with rice in a crunchy fried bite of croqueta.

Can you imagine croquetas as dessert? Here, these mini crunchy poopers come with Nutella and matcha filling to satisfy sweet tooths.

Oy! Croqueta was founded by three Spanish “food explorers” Xavi Rovira, Jonas Pons, and Julen Aierdi. They left their home country in search of inspiration, and here they found joy and purpose amidst the cacophony of jeepney horns and hollering sidewalk vendors.
