San Sebastián, despite its compact size, is a real giant when it comes to food. As I mentioned on my previous post, it has a large number of Michelin starred restaurants. Together with Paris, it is the only city in the world with a trio of 3-Michelin-star restaurants.
But to enjoy good food in the city you don’t need to pay €300 for a meal for two. The city abounds with bars and restaurants serving pintxos, the outrageously tasty Basque style tapas. They are small amounts of (generally) gourmet food on top of small bread slices.
A good way to explore the Old Quarter is going from bar to bar tasting different types and varieties. That alone would make for a good meal, washed down with a good local cider or beer.
With prices ranging from €1.50 to €4 depending on the type and the bar, they will give you a great taste of the local cuisine and won’t break the bank. So, what are you waiting for? 🙂
