Tapas in Sebastian

You cannot visit Pamplona without taking a side trip to San Sebastian.  We rent a car, and have completely lost touch with the bus crowd.  For a couple of bucks, we love to throw in the back seat for the ride.

Commonly, our friends want to know about places to each in San Sebastnian, which really is a culinary capital of the world.

Here’s our short list of favorites in the parte vieja.

Gorriti (c/San Juan, corner c/Lorenzio) . All time favorite!


Best Cow Cheek You’ll Ever Eat!

Nagusia Lau (c/ Mayor / Nagusia Kalea 4)

La Cepa (c/31 de Augusto, 7)

Ganbara (c/San Jeronimo, 21).  As discovered by PNM, but as popularized by Gwyneth.  Mushroom w/egg yolk.

Gaztelu (c/31 de Augusto)

Txepetxa, c/5 Pescaderia (anchovies w/creamed crab).

Narrika, c/Narrika (patatas bravas)

Astelena (corner of Plaza Constitucion)

Borda Berri (Fermin Calbeton, 12).  Ask for the cow cheek, anchovies. 

Bar Ganbara (c/ de San Jerónimo 21).  Wild mushrooms.

 Txepetxa, (5 C/Pescaderia).  Anchovies w/creamed crab.

Bara Case Senra, San Francisco, 32

Alona Berri (Bermingham, 24).  Ccod, mushrooms w/gizzards. 

Bergara (General Artexe, 8).

Just look for anything on: 31 de Augusto, Fermin Calbeton, Pescaderia, Aldamar, or San Jeronimo

Dessert — Galparsoro, 6 c/6 Mayor (chocolate chip brioche).  Trust me.

We spent more than a few hours eating here and consider this the list.
