12. May 2013: Restaurant Poza 46

The blood sausage pintxo (EUR 1.50) with a quail egg on top is a great start for breakfast. The triangular pinchos filled with cheese and ham (EUR 2.00) are supporting a heavy breakfast. The espresso (cafe solo, EUR 1.30) is very intense and aromatic. The place is genuinely nice but very simple and the waiter […]

11. May 2013: Oker Bar

The Oker Bar is a very simple place but has a nice crowd – it is somehow distinct from the other bar arounds in the same street. A beer is quite cheap accounting for EUR 2.50. Overall, the Oker Bar is a fine place – not overly appealing but also not overly disappointing. Rating: Atmosphere: […]

One word to describe this “experience”: disappointment! I have been at number 11, 36 and 38 of the world and figured when I go to number 31, it should be somehow comparable but it wasn’t. For a relatively low price of EUR 125.00 (excl. VAT) the tasting menu was offered which of course I had […]

Recommended by the local tourist office my expectations were limited – and they were about met. The place is quite simply furnished and is mostly frequented by locals. The “tomato salad with garlic” (EUR 7.00) was simple – the tomatoes were fresh, the garlic was so intense that it was overwhelming the tomato taste. What […]

The “Tortilla Especial” (EUR 1.80) is a hearty and heavy – with thick layers of cheese and ham which helps to get started after a heavy night. The espresso (EUR 1.25) is strong and intense. The waiter is doing his job – friendliness is definitely not his strongest point. While the place is quite ine […]

The Bowie bar is damn crowded every evening – the beer is cheap, the crowd is about as cheap and the music is damn loud. Overall, the club is simple and fine.

10. May 2013: Zamakolako Errota

The Zamakolako Errota is a simple but nice place – inside it is simple but when you step outside it is really nice as there is where the party actually takes place. Prices are quite fair, accounting for approximately 2.00 – 3.00 EUR for a beer. Overall, nothing special but the perfect place to stand […]

The place was packed – and for a good reason – while most pintxos were good but there was one which was truly outstanding: Blood sausage on a piece of bread, topped by an egg and crossed with red chilis! I cannot describe how great it was – but it was absolutely amazing!!! Besides the […]
