San Sebastian, I Love You

by Krista

Let’s see if I can do this all correctly. You see, I really want to straighten out my photos. I want ONE photo size. If you notice, my photos are huge if they run vertical. Puny if they run horizontal. Hmmm. Let me see if I can establish order with this post.

Where was I…Canadia Boy and Stacey got married the other weekend. In Biarritz, no less. They are humongously fantastic people and an excellent time was had by all. The other Thursday–that day at the beginning of the bank holiday weekend–they took us to San Sebastian. And we all stuffed our faces and drank lots of txacoli. Why have I not been to San Sebastian before? Why?

So, here’s a little round-up of our tapas crawl…may you at some point in your life get to experience something as wonderfully delicious and entertaining.

First stop, Goiz Argi for some pimentos de padron and some juicy shrimp, all washed down with lots of txacoli…

And then it was over to San Sebastian’s La Cepa (my absolute favorite stop) for some jamon and some cervesas…

And then our last stop…whose name I won’t even try to write out…for the nicest bit of steak cooked to a very perfect medium rare…

Now if that doesn’t make you want to move to San Sebastian…

Oh but it does make me want to move to San Sebastian. Alas, the closest I’ve ever gotten to the Basque country is Barcelona, but that’s another story.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! If you check the sake events calendar on my friend Etsuko’s blog tokyofoodcast.com, you will hopefully be able to go to a tasting during your stay here. Why don’t you send me an email with your dates, and if I hear of something, I’ll let you know?

Cheers,
Melinda

I’m planning a trip to San Sebastian in a few weeks to eat at Mugaritz and Arzak (a present from my parents I hasten to add, not something I could afford on a chef’s salary). I’ll be looking out for some of these places you’ve mentioned for my more normal meals.
