Pamplona is a good place for sampling this exquisite miniature cuisine which is an old custom to be enjoyed just before sitting down to a proper meal. Most bars have a diverse selection of expertly prepared dishes, and along with traditional tapas offer sophisticated pinchos based on local produce.
The city’s bars are a window into tradition and local avant garde gastronomy. A visit to the city is a great opportunity to try the famous txistorra, relleno, mushrooms or fritos - fried snacks made with a béchamel sauce and a main ingredient.
The Juevintxo has become a popular Thursday event where over 30 bars offer quality wines (or a small beer) with a side pintxo for just 2 €.
