Pintxo Astearteak (Tapa Tuesday)



Another classic today, this time from the center of San Sebastián. A lovely plateful of conserves, slid over without pretensions: bonito tuna, cured anchovies, and pickled guindilla peppers, with loads of olive oil. Thanks to an incorrect article in the local newspaper, this bar, Casa Valles, is often cited as the place where the first pintxo was served and/or the gilda was invented. No. But this little plate is quite delicious.
