10. May 2013: Restaurant Sotera

| June 1, 2013 | 0 Comments

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 regular pintxos (all together EUR 47.50) …


… we had two bottles of wine which were quite fine too (EUR 20.00 per bottle).


In the morning when we were at a local fish market, we discovered the “goose barnacle” and figured we should try it. So when we saw it, we decided that we should absolutely order it – so we tried 200gr of goose barnacles (EUR 24.00). They are a bit tricky to open but once you succeed you figure that they are … just some other kind of clam. To me they were absolutely nothing special.


The waiter was dedicated, friendly and helpful. I think he was amazed that someone can order quite some pintxos and even the clams. He was also rather astonished that we did not know how to eat the goose barnacles. Overall, the Restaurant Sotera offers a couple of amazing pintxos but also quite a selection of regular ones. The place is nice but not amazing – damn crowded though. The prices are quite fine but compared to other places we have been it is more expensive. In any case, I can recommend you to go there and try these “blood sausage pintxos” – they are amazing!
