Croqueticas de pollo

In Cuba there are some fast food places, some called Fast and others the DITU where you can eat something prepared quickly and at a good price.

On the one hand, we have the rapids where you can eat small pizzas and hamburgers heated in a microwave apart from drinking something, since they have tables and are usually indoors and on the other the DITU, which are usually like a beach bar with outdoor tables and where you can buy fried. This is where I tried for the first time the Cuban croquettes, which, without being an exquisite product, is cheap and from time to time it is good to snack on something.
