Top 10 easy Pintxo you have to try, inspired by San Sebastian

When choosing what Pintxo to try next, the sheer variety can be overwhelming! How can you possibly decide?


As the epicentre of all things Pintxo, San Sebastian could give us a steer. Its prime coastal location gives it a long maritime history, and seafood is extremely prevalent in its fantastic cuisine. Some of our favourite Pintxo in San Sebastian incorporate the region’s incredible seafood.

I blog/vlog about everything PintxoTapas, the past and the future trends from San Sabastian being driven by Michelin starred chefs.


I am a self-taught semi-professional chef working in a 300 cover restaurant in Surrey UK. I love trying new things and testing them out with my family. Each recipe is tried and true, family-tested and approved, or sometimes not but you've got to push the boundaries. Inspired by cookbooks, other food blogs, TV chefs, and family recipes.


​I try to make practical PintxoTapas recipes available on this site that can bring your family and friends together for an informal, but an amazing adventure into the world of Pintxo. As well as writing, I work on my YouTube channel and with suppliers to produce all sorts of video content, from interviews, how-to guides and recipe guides.
