Just about every place on the planet has its own version of croquettes, and here in Dayton, THE place to get some is Hunger Paynes.

The food truck specializes in made-from-scratch balls of meat, bread, cheese and fresh herbs.

I have a tremendous fondness for sauerkraut and Thousand Island, so when I saw Reuben Croquettes on the menu, I looked no further down the menu. An order came on a bed of homemade potato chips. Four 2-ounce balls of homemade corned beef, sauerkraut, baby Swiss cheese and pumpernickel bread were slathered with luscious dressing then topped with micro radish and parsley.

Other croquette versions include Mac & Cheese, Salmon, Spicy Chipotle Arancini, Taco Beef and Korean Pork BBQ. An order of croquettes is $6 (the salmon, $7).

Then there are these. #comegetyasome

Hunger Payne’s also offers pretzel bites ($5-7) and several sides, including Applewood smoked bacon, pork rinds, homemade chips and loaded chips.
