Basque Pintxos (SOLD OUT)

  • 18 Reasons 3674 18th st San Francisco (map)

Yay it looks like the demand for  Basque cuisine is on the rise, this one sold out in lightning speed! Perhaps we can tempt you with our Boutique Basque culinary tour instead? 

The Basque consider themselves a separate people from the rest of Spain. They are undoubtedly the possessors of the best food in Spain, in Camila’s opinion. Their pintxos (pronounced “pinchos”) are a vernacular version of tapas, small plates with their own twist. Eating pintxos involves bar-hopping and drinking either local cider or txakoli (a young, lightly sparkling Basque white wine). Though we won’t be bar hopping, we will be drinking some txakoli.
