Esta claro que San Sebastián se está convirtiendo en uno de los destinos sagrados para los amantes de la gastronomía. Lo mismo que está claro que todos caen rendidos a los pies de los pintxos. La lista de referencias que hemos recogido sobre estos asuntos gastronómicos de esta ciudad vasca, esta alcanzando proporciones faraónicas. Lo cuál es todo un placer.

En esta ocasión traemos una doble referencia. En ambos casos responsabilidad de Phoebe Lapine. Una, es su artículo publicado en el diario on-line Huffington Post y el otro es Feed me Fhoebe , su blog,  en el que ofrece una extensa y profunda guía para que cualquier chica hambrienta que llegue a Donostia, mate su hambre a base de pintxos.

En esta ocasión, puede que con más intensidad que en otros casos, le recomendados a Phoebe Lapine que se explore con mayor profundidad los rincones de El País de los Vascos. Sin duda Donostia es un paraíso, pero es un paraíso que llega mucho más allá de los límites de la ciudad.

The 9 Best Pintxos Bars in San Sebastian and What to Eat There

San Sebastian has evolved into quite a food Mecca over the last 30 years. Together with the surrounding area, Spanish Basque country has the highest number of Michelin star restaurants in the world. But molecular gastronomy aside, it’s really the down home pintxos bars — the Basque equivalent of tapas — that form the cornerstone of San Sebastian’s foodie culture. The old quarter of the city is packed with pintxos restaurants — so many that knowing where to go and what to order can be very overwhelming. I was lucky to have some expert assistance when I began my trip. San Sebastian Food , a luxury gastronomy company in the area, showed me the ropes, took the reins on ordering, and indulged me in all my food nerdiness. It was great to have someone there give me all the cultural background on what I was eating, how the ingredients were produced, and why the dishes came to be — like, for instance, that the Gilda, a skewer with anchovies, olives and hot peppers, was named after Rita Hayworth because she is similarly tall and spicy.

A Hungry Girl’s Guide to San Sebastian

Hungry-Girl-Guide-San-Sebastian

The longest stretch of time I spent traveling alone was in southern Spain. I was 21 at the time, and spoke no Spanish. I hopped from hostel to hostel, staying only 2 nights (max) at a time in each city. I drank many a glass of sangria, ate many a delicious tapas, and made friends with many a cute Australian.
