From now until 26 June, visit.brussels will be accepting entries for the best prawn croquettes in the city.

The croquette judging will take place at the ‘eat! BRUSSELS, drink! BORDEAUX festival’ on 7 September.

Candidates must “own a business, a cafeteria, a bar or food truck that is actively in use and located within the Brussels-Capital region and offer home-made prawn croquettes à la carte,” a press release from visit.brussels says.

The judging panel is made up of food journalists who give points to the croquettes. Points will be awarded for crunch, taste and prawn quality, among other criteria. The winner of this year’s competition will be able to use the title of ‘best prawn croquettes in Brussels’ for a year.

The information to enter the competition can be found here.

This is the second croquette competition hosted by visit.brussels. Last year’s winner was the Fernand Obb Delicatessen.
