A truly local pintxos experience: Restaurant Bodega Donostiarra (16. November 2019)

| December 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

The app “Where Chefs Eat” remains an absolutely reliable source for good food experiences. The Bodega Donostiarra was recommended for “pintxos” (tapas but in Basque county) and I must say that they delivered once more. We went for the “sardinillas gallegas ‘Salanorf'” (EUR 5.70) which were absolutely enjoyable but also quite oily.

My favorite was the “morcilla de Burgos ‘Casa Tere’ a la brasa con pimientos” (EUR 9.40). Not so much because of the grilled bell pepper stripes but very much because of the morcilla – although for my personal taste it could definitely have had less rice and actually more black pudding.

The “carne cocida con tomate” (EUR 4.60) was basically pulled meat in a tomato sauce. And while it was tasty, it was also a rather large portion. So, if you are not overly hungry and feel like you’re starving but want to try a couple of things, I would highly recommend you to only order “half a portion” of each.

The “chorizo ‘Tradicional Palacios’ picante” (EUR 5.40) were tasty …

… as well as te “fuet ibérico” (EUR 5.70) which is basically a local salami. Both of them work great with some slices of bread, but they are also quite a lot and you feel like you’re definitely eating too much of it after a few bites.

The place is small and very crowded (the picture was taken in a moment when it wasn’t that full) and the majority of the people coming in are actually locals. Which might have to do with the fact that I visited this summer destination in winter or due to the fact that it was raining cats and dogs – or just because it is famous for its food among locals too.

All in all, if you are hungry after walking through the city or just want to have a couple of small bites (aka “pintxos”), I can definitely recommend you to visit the Bodega Donostiarra!

I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems!
