Bilbao: where to eat and what to taste?

The Basque Bilbao may be overshadowed by its gastronomically much more famous neighbor, the city of San Sebastián, but as a result, the local gastrobars are not so overcrowded with tourists and the prices are not so high. In Bilbao, you can find excellent Basque pintxos, small and often simple appetizers made from top-quality ingredients. Txakoli, a light and slightly sparkling white wine, pairs wonderfully with pintxos. Bilbao, a city with a population similar to Sheffield, is home to 11 Michelin-starred restaurants.
