Slipped away for a few pintxos this afternoon ^_^
We just arrived in San Sebastián and my first thought wasahhh must take a nap. I can never sleep on the plane and we had a roundabout flight that involved transfers in Munich. Jetlag, exhausted, everything. But then I realized this was my only free afternoon in the city, so off I went to Casa Urola Jatetxea in Parte Vieja.
The walk along Playa de La Concha was beautiful…perfect for some alone time.
Just a few bites to tide me over before dinner. I wish I got a photo of the bar where all the pintxos were arranged. So picturesque. My high school-level Spanish completely failed me, so it was a game of pick and smile. Each one was about 2-3€, and now that I’m looking at these photos, I regret not ordering double of everything!
Two types of anchovies (boquerones if you’re going to be picky ;), browned onions, and marinated red pepper on toast with plenty of olive oil.
Crab, shrimp, salmon, octopus…and ikura. The woman helping me called this a “seafood salad” but it was so much more.
Marinated tuna, olive, and pimentos.
Toast topped with anchovies, a quail egg, mayonaise, shrimp, and grated egg yolk.
