Right now, I wish that I could close my eyes and be back in San Sebastian drinking a glass of regional white wine and eating Pintxos! Curious are you? Pintxos are basically the Basque version of Spanish tapas. Bar owners literally set out plates of them on the bar counters throughout the day, and people can walk up to the bar and ask for a plate and then feast on the small delicasies. Yum. Below are a couple pics of our favorite ones. The bird's nest with the shrimp on top was my fav!
Is it time for dessert yet?
Below were some of my favorite Spanish desserts mainly from two restaurants where we tried the tasting menus. If you're curious, the first two are from a phenomenal restaurant named Etxebarri and the last two were from a lesser known but almost equally amazing restaurant in San Sebastian named Bodegon Alejandro. From top: Smoked vanilla ice cream with raspberry compote.
Yum. French culinary adventures coming soon.
