Croqueta Preparada at Colada Shop
1405 T St. NW, (202) 332-8800
Most flock to Colada Shop for the $8 cocktails, coffee that’ll wake you up into next week, and Cubano sandwiches. But when you’re really feeling low, there’s another sandwich to get on your radar. The Croqueta Preparada is essentially a ham and cheese sandwich on Cuban bread that also contains squashed croquetas in all their fried glory. It’s like someone thought of putting a giant tater tot between bread but way better. Soak up your sorrows for $9.98.
