Despite the monsoon weather in San Sebastián this weekend, djDD and I still had a blast pintxo-hopping in Gros and walking it all off in the torrential downpour. Yes, we ventured all the way from the Euskotren in San Sebastián to the opposite side of town, multiple times in multiple monsoon-ish storms. Every bite counts:
Mitxelena de Gaztelu Txiki
After we worked up an appetite scouring the town for kitchen utensils, Athena and I went for some pre-dinner pintxos at my favorite hot spot in Gros, Hidalgo 56. I thought last night’s dishes at Zeruko were good and I thought this place was good…but think I found my new favorite pintxo:
Begui-Aundi, relleno de ratatouille con crema de cebolleta y tinta
By far my favorite pintxo yet. iEpa! And again, I love the family-run business here. Friendly staff and wholesome food. I just can’t get enough. I’ll be coming back for more, for sure.
Afterwards, we went to Guillermo’s for some pizza. Spanish pizza? Sin possible. Pero, si!
Guillermo rolled out the flatbread and Amaia made the various toppings. They whipped up over 5 whole pizzas for a party of at least 11 or so? Impressive and delicious. Thank you both for a wonderful and delicious evening. Pizza and [vino] Ribera del Duero? I will certainly sleep well tonight!
