astelena:::croqueta de pistacho (pistachio croquette)

Plaza Constitución, 1::Donostia-San Sebastián.

One of my (many) hobbies is seeking out weird croquetas. Croquetas are ubiquitious in Spain and Basque Country.  The only mandatory characteristics are a base of bechamel, some sort of coating, and fried yumminess.  This example from Astelena is unique, slightly sweet and delicious.
