Top Tips:

1. Don’t spend more than ten minutes in each bar. Choose a pintxo and move on to the next.
2. Accompany your selections with a glass of Rioja red, txakoli (a very dry, slightly sparkling white wine) or local sidra (cider).
3. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of paper on the floor. It’s considered good manners to throw your napkin down in appreciation for the chef.
