Pintxos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pincho) are a basque appetizer similar to tapas on small slices of bread.  San Sebastián has a huge amount of small bars that are well-known for their signature pintxo dishes.

Leo (our hostel host) took us out on a pintxos tour a few nights ago.  We sampled so many great dishes and I have to write a short post about it..

The highlight by far was the award-winning Zeruko in old town with their inventive style pintxo. The video below is me trying their signature cod dish which was lightly smoked on hot coal and washed down with a lettuce shot.

I have also attached a few pictures taken from some of the other bars.

If you are a food lover then San Sebastián is definitely the place for you.
