Irati Taverna Basca | Pintxos* | Barcelona

*Pintxos are small snacks typical popular in the Basque country, which are usually ‘spiked’ with a skewer to a piece of bread. At the end of the meal, you return your plate and pay according to the number of skewers left in it.Cake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaDECISIONS, DECISIONS…Cake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaSEAFOOD TORTILLA PINTXOSCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaMY PERSONAL FAVE: DUCK TERRINE + CONFIT ORANGE CROISSANT!Cake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaFRESH CHEESE + PEPPER RELISH + PINE NUTS PINTXOCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaJAMON + MUSHROOMS: ALWAYS A GOOD IDEACake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaTUNA STEAK + ONION PICKLE PINTXOCake + Whisky | Barcelona travel guide | Irati Taverna BascaFRESH ANCHOVY + TAPENADE + ONION PICKLE

Tip: As usual with Barcelona’s tapas bar, don’t be afraid to claim your spot at the bar! Ask the staff for a plate and get stuck in! 

What to order: My favourite was the duck terrine & confit orange croissant, but the tortilla and anchovy ones were also really good!

How much: Each pintxos costs 2€. For a light lunch, you’ll want 6-8 pintxos/person, so the bill should be around 15€ pp + drinks.

Where: Irati Taverna Basca, Carrer del Cardenal Casañas, 17, 08002 Barcelona

      Hi Becky! I know, I know, looking at my blog makes me hungry too (but I can’t really say I’m sorry 😉 ). It was like a buffet (convenient when you don’t speak Spanish!) and you help yourself. I think that’s how pintxos bars work in general, but I might be wrong… Sandra x
