Pinxtos is usually known as a part of the bar culture in Spain: they tend to play second fiddle to drinking and socializing in what would otherwise be seen and known as a regular bar. However at this restaurant, Pinxtos are the main event.
This restaurant has a menu of several different pinxtos, which is the Basque word for tapas, that you can choose from. Each menu item has a picture accompanying it so that you can see what you will be getting before ordering it. There are also descriptions of what is included in each one, and due to the central touristic location of the restaurant, the menu is translated into several languages including English and French. The choices are delicious: pick a few to start, and then keep ordering like in a sushi restaurant until you've had enough.
The desserts are tapas-size as well, and they are just as delicious as the main pinxtos.
The prices are not extraordinary, but this is not a cheap meal, unless you only eat one or two tapas, which is not really enough food for lunch. For a meal, expect to order between five and ten tapas per person, depending on how hungry they are. [more ]
Euskal Extea - Tapas/pinchos bar
If you are thinking about taking a trip to Barcelona and want to try something fun and new then you should go to a Pinchos/Tapas bar. Pinchos are a very tasty Spanish cuisine that is composed of different types of meats and cheeses on slices of bread. The meats and cheeses are held on to the bread by a special kind of cocktail that makes it stick to the bread. One of the notable and famous Pinchos/Tapas bars is called “Euskal Etxea.” This place was really cool and really relaxed. The staff there was very friendly and the food was very reasonably priced. The food was really awesome there. I had no idea what a Pinchos or Tapas were before I went there. I am glad that I decided to try something new because they were delicious. [more ]
