Last year’s visit at El Celler de Can Roca got me, and the rest of the party, hungry for more of gastronomical top dining. I’ve summed up my experience from El Celler in a separate post found here but for the summer to come we’re aiming at Spain again, this time a different Costa. Hopefully we’ll find a place in or near San Sebastian since the city is home to a whole bunch of great restaurants. Look at the Top 50 in the world and you’ll find Arzak, Martin Berasategui and of course Mugaritz, the latter which I hope will be reopened after the unfortunate fire a couple of weeks ago.
Sitting in a café enjoying a rare sunny day in Stockholm someone heard me and a friend discussing Mugaritz and offered a few other tips for great culinary adventures in and around San Sebastian. He was a journalist and a food critic so we took his advice as valuable. So if you’re heading to Basque Country drop in at Akelarre, La Cuchara de San Telmo or any of the many excellent Pintxos bars.
