pintxo astearteak (tapa tuesdays)


bar garbola:::croqueta de pistacho (pistachio croqueta)

Paseo de Colon, 11 ::Donostia-San Sebastián

This is another first appearance on the blog, this time with a bar that is right around the corner from my home.  Why did it take so long for me to feature a pintxo from this spot, especially considering that they are uniquely delicious? Well, anyone who has passed this place will have noticed the fake drinks set up on a table outside with laminated nametags. That is basically why.  Too reminiscent of the Applebee's of old, perhaps. 

Well, I was wrong, this place is indeed worth stopping in, and the croquetas are delicious, especially the pistachio and the hongo (mushroom) croquetas.
