A Fuego Negro in San Sebastian

While I am busy trying to realize Christmas is right around the corner, and presents need to be bought, I thought I'd take you to San Sebastian for a lovely pintxo-party! See, my head is having problems understanding that it's the middle of December, since the thermometer outside shows 28 degrees C,
 on the plus side of the scale, and I am running out of time. So...here we go!

I already talked quite a bit about pintxos on my trip to Northern Spain in August, and I think this is the last one, but a very important one! In my previous pintxo-post I mentioned that there were two restaurants that really stood out to us in San Sebastian. One of them was Bar Bergara. The other one, A Fuego Negro.


We had a recommendation for this specific pintxo bar, but we didn’t have the address so were happy when we stumbled upon it by coincidence. It certainly was one of the greater pinxo-experiences of all. 
Everything in that bar was fabulous. The design was cool and modern, the staff very friendly, 
the pinxos divine and the wine delicious. 


The menu is on the blackboard, funny names on the dishes, in Euskera (the Basque language):


Fantastically tasting mini burger with red bread and banana chips....mmm!


Some fancy fish...


Cactus! (Chocolate and licorice dessert with a leaf of green tea.)



...can be found at
C/ Treinta y Uno de Agosto
in the old town of San Sebastian.
