Bar Borda Berri

Pintxos in Parte Vieja

The uber-popular Bar Borda Berri is a pintxos (Basque tapas) bar that really lives up to the hype. Amid mustard-coloured walls hung with old photos and strands of garlic, hungry diners crowd in for house specials like braised veal cheeks in wine, mushroom and Idiazabal (a sheep cheese) risotto, and the decadent octopus.

Adventurous palates should go for pig's ears served in garlic soup – much better than it sounds!
