During this Basque Tapas tour San Sebastian, you experience what San Sebastian is famous for and explore this beautiful city. Your guide brings you to the best local places where you can taste a great selection of miniature bites, from traditional to modern and experimental pintxos.
San Sebastian: the land of the Michelin star restaurants, the best Spanish tapas, and people with great taste for the more beautiful things in life. San Sebastian has the most Michelin stars per square meter and is the city with the most bars and restaurants in Spain. With a culture that revolves mostly about food, this place is a must-visit for everyone that enjoys and appreciates high-quality food.
The prestigious travel guide “Ultimate Eat list” from Lonely Planet has even awarded the San Sebastián pintxos the title of best gastronomic experience in the world. And the city has been a training ground for many great chefs.
For the Basques, lunch is the most important meal of the day, and this is the best time to find an affordable meal, for example, a well-priced daily menu “menu del dia.” It dates back to Franco’s time that all restaurants were required to offer a “Menu del dia.” In these meals, fresh fish (especially cod; bacalao) is often an essential ingredient, thanks to the proximity to the sea. The tasty fish dishes, but also the numerous fresh vegetables, characterize the kitchen of the Basque country.
In the evenings the Basques often eat pintxos; these are the Basque form of tapas. They are usually artfully made pieces of baguette, where the different ingredients are held together by a toothpick or skewer. However, at checkout, you need to be able to tell how many pintxos you ate, so do not throw these away! Authentic Basque pintxo is the ‘Gilda,’ a sandwich with chili pepper, olives, and anchovies. Basques like to make a habit of having a pub crawl along the various pintxos bars in the evening.
