Gastronomy journalist Kat Odell has penned an article for the online version of Vogue magazine showing San Sebastian off as the first-order world gastronomic center that it is, especially given the high ratio of world-renowned restaurants it’s home to.
But she hasn’t chosen to immerse her readers in the ocean of Michelin stars and other restaurants that the lovers of good food can find around town. Instead, she has allowed herself to be guided by one of the great Basque chefs, Andoni Aduriz, on a tour of some of the most interesting pintxo bars in San Sebastian.
It’s not a wide selection, just five places are collected in this article. Nevertheless, despite the fact that it’s just one person’s opinion, that opinion is definitely one to bear in mind. In any case, if we go over the long list of articles we’ve collected over the years about San Sebastian pintxos, we’ll see there there is such a wide range of alternatives offered by the streets of this town that it can be adapted to the taste of any visitor.

A Food Crawl Through San Sebastián With One of the World’s Top Chefs
About an hour’s drive east of Bilbao, and just 12 miles west of the French border, lies San Sebastián, a coastal Northern Spain gem of a resort town located in the country’s Basque region. Reputed for its turquoise waters, palm tree–lined streets, and—most of all—its cuisine, San Sebastián which also goes by its Basque name, Donostia—is the area’s culinary capital and counts two of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, in addition to one of the highest concentrations of Michelin stars anywhere. But when in town, the best plates aren’t found on white tablecloths.
