Pinchos


San Sebastian

San Sebastian in Spain is where I fell in love with Pinchos!  Will someone in Philadelphia please open a Pinchos Restaurant? 
 Anthony Boudain agrees with me!
Q. And your favorite spot in Europe?
A. You’d have a hard time finding anything better than Barcelona for food, as far as being a hub. Given a choice between Barcelona and San Sebasti├ín to die in, I’d probably want to die in San Sebasti├ín.

 
A typical snack of the Basque Country, pinchos consist of small slices of bread upon which an ingredient or mixture of ingredients is placed and fastened with a toothpick, which gives the food its name pincho, meaning spike.  Pinchos are very common in the taverns of the Basque Country,  where a variety of pinchos is usually served on a tray at the bar.








 Groups of friends will go from one tavern to another, drinking small glasses of wine or beer and eating pinchos!
