Food and San Sebastian are nearly synonymous words. One cannot get into one of the numerous bars of the old town without being confronted to huge amounts of delicious Pintxos (Basque word for Tapas) which are displayed on the counter, ready for being picked and eaten.
I seized the opportunity for trying one or 2 things I’ve never had befor like those angulas or baby eels. They actually don’t really taste like fish, rather like slightly sweet seafood. But most importantly they are pretty delicious
Then we had those Percebes. Mythic mussel which is being harvested by divers in extreme conditions since they are being found on the steep and rocky shores of the Atlantic where waves hit and break with fierce energy. They are quite difficult to crack open, or lets say the sharp edges of their claws can cut you under your finger nail if you’re not careful. The flesh is quite tasty though and justifies the effort.
