San Sebastian’s Food Trail

If you’re familiar with bar hopping, you will very much enjoy San Sebastián’s pintxos hopping. 
Pintxos – which means tapas in the Basque language – is a true way of life on the Northern coast of Spain, where most eateries specialise in one type of pintxo, meaning diners go from place to place to order different bites for a single meal.
 
The old city’s many bars all serve different delicacies and thanks to us you will now be able to know where to order what. Now the tricky bit is finding a spot at the counter (as eating standing up is the custom). The local tip? Just place your elbow on the counter – as that means you’re sticking around.
