Pulled pork croquette at Marben...holy crap that was good

Went to Marben last night for the Sausage League dinner, but also ordered several items off the regular dinner menu. I am compelled to recommend the pulled pork croquette as one of the yummier things I've eaten in the recent past. That's right, a croquette -- pulled pork, breaded and deep fried.
It was really damn good. Super crunchy exterior (but not too thick) and a rich, unctuous interior of just plain ol' pulled pork. Served with a small helping of a tangy potato salad and a few greens. I need to go back and have this again. Soon.
Sorry for the bad photo -- iphone and bad lighting.

It was hard to tell because the restaurant was so dark. If it was a bechamel, they used a minimal amount, because I found the interior creamy, but not overly so. All you could visibly see was pulled pork. It was a very simple dish, but it just happened to combine two things near and dear to my heart: pork and crunchy fried things.
Here's a pic with a bit more light. I agree with TorontoJo, it was pretty darn tasty. Loved it as much as the pommes kennedy that came with our roast beef.
Globe Bistro has something similar on the current menu. I have not tried it as I'm eating my way through the appetisers and only try two each time. The pork item is next on my list.
So far I had the elk tartare, seared albacore tune, and the lobster aps. (and a soup) and all are worth ordering.
