A pincho or pintxo in Basque language is a snack, usually eaten in bars in northern Spain and especially in the Basque country. They are similar to tapas but the main difference is that pinchos are usually spiked with a skewer or toothpick and often to a piece of bread.
The best pincho bars are found in San Sebastian. Almost any ingredient can be put on the bread, but those most commonly found in the Basque Country are hake, cod, anchovy, stuffed peppers; and croquettes.
No one can visit San Sebastian without going out for some “pinchos” because they are traditional and such delicacies. The section in the old quarter are full of pintxos bars and people pair them with local wine or “zuritos” (beer). They are presented in a large variety while one walks into the bar, with a plate in hand and ready to choose your meal. The local custom is to go from one bar to another, trying the delicacies in each establishment.
I have to conclude that pintxos are super yummy, I cant stop thinking about them! Drooling!
