Pinxtos and michelen stars in San Sebastián


If you love astounding tasting food then I highly recommend that you take a trip to San Sebastián in the Basque region of Northern Spain, a weekend is enough to experience the highlights.

Check. Pinxto is the local Basque speciality, which is basically the … Continue reading »
