San Sebastian – Pintos Heaven

San Sebastian – Pintos Heaven

A weekend in San Sebastian is a culinary adventure.  Having so much on offer to taste, it can be slightly overwhelming and if you’re only there for a short while, one doesn’t want to waste a single meal on something that is not outstanding!
After searching out recommendations, I had places in mind where I wanted to visit.  But once your there, it’s far more fun to wander and get advice from other excited tourists and locals who are unashamedly proud of their fresh produce and flavours.
  San Sebastian

The theatre of the pintxos bars are tremendous fun and a character building experience.  You have to be prepared to push your way to the front and shout your order to the waiter.  But once you have your spoils, throwing your muscle shells on the floor and sipping a delicious wine amongst the locals you feel a genuine sense of achievement.

Top Recommendations:

Goiz Argi – Octopus

Being on the coast you expect some pretty good seafood and it did not fail to deliver. Generous portions of fried octopus kebabs marinated in garlic oil.

Ni Neu – 3 Course Taster Menu

This was a welcomed changed from eating standing up.  A relaxed atmosphere you can take your time over three delicious courses.

La Vina – Best Cheesecake

A favourite with the locals.  The texture is nothing like the cheesecake we have here.  Thick, smooth and luxurious.

Atari Gastroteka – Calamari and Tomato Salad

Each pintxos bar offers a tomato salad, all prepared the same way, sea salt and extra virgin oil.  A mix of colours the tomatoes are so juicy and ripe,  a lovely salad to have with lightly battered calamari.

Bar Nestor – Best Galician Steak

Always a queue, the staff are very strict that all the diners have enough elbow room when standing at the bar and so they should be as this is a serious bit of beef.  Your chosen rib comes out sizzling on a hot plate, sprinkled in crunchy sea salt and lumps of fat for flavour.  All of this with a couple of glasses of red wine all for around 50 euros.
