DONOSTIA-SAN SEBASTIAN - PARTE VIEJA - LA CUCHARA DE SAN TELMO

LA CUCHARA DE SAN TELMO

You will find this place down the end of a side alley off of Calle de 31 Augusto at the back of the old town. Its well worth seeking out and do not be shy about walking in even it is busy.

You will not see any cold pintxos on bread set out on the bar as is normal in most pintxos bars, all the pintxos here are hot (and made to order) and you order from the blackboard menu behind the bar.

It can get very busy at weekends and when special events are on, like the San Sebastián film festival.

A few of the excellent pintxos to try include.......

Sopa fría de tomate con jamón y Idiazábal (cold tomato soup with jamón and Idiazábal (basque cheese) Foie gras salteado compota manzana (foie gras sauteed with apple sauce)

Pulpo a la plancha con crujiente de quinua (grilled octopus with crunchy quinoa)

Risotto de sepia con queso de cabra (cuttlefish risotto with goats cheese). Not made with rice, the grain is orzo (pasta)

Magret asado lentamente (slowly roasted duck breast)

Cochinillo (suckling pig) (which is not always advertised, so you need to ask for it)

Carrillera Ternera (beef cheeks)

Beware of oreja cerdo ibérico asada (basically roast ibérico pig’s ear!) An acquired taste. Although it seems lots of people have acquired it!

Everything is cooked in the open kitchen at one end of the bar.

Not a place to miss, It's well worth seeking out.
