San Sebastián: Pinudi Taverna
Get There: Calle de Narrica 27
Looking deceptively like a dirty sports bar with scarves from various football teams attached to the walls with drawing pins, Pinudi’s is the place to go for cheap, amazing pintxos and a truly local atmosphere. It’s about as diamond in the rough as San Seb gets, and for this reason, it’s well worth seeking out. Oskar and his lovely wife are your hosts and they’ll keep the place open for as long as you’re happy sitting at the bar, tasting all the goodies they’ve got to offer.
DEFINITELY EAT: “The Jimmy,” a steak perfectly cooked to perfection, adorned with foie gras and a sauce that will make you see heaven.
