Discover San Sebastián through their pintxos
You have probably looked which are the best pintxos in San Sebastián by now, trying to find the most local and authentic places in the city. Getting to know the city through its gastonomy is actually a really great idea. You can appreciate the personality of each area of San Sebastián, when you go around each neighbourhood ‘poteando’ (which here means bar-hopping, having drinks and pintxos in different bars).
Pintxos culture exploded during last century, when they were created to offer clients small appetizers to try bar specialties. Currently, it has evolved, turning into a real gastronomy experience, in which each chef thinks really hard to create something new, combining basque flavours with foreing influences.
We do love our San Sebastián pintxo cooking class, because it captures the city identity and gives us the opportunity to share it.
