So this day was a total bust as it was heavily pouring all day. We ended up going to San Telmo Museum, which has a “history” of San Sebastián but it was honestly the most boring thing ever. Granted – I’m not a big fan of museums, but this one was pretty darn bad.
So after being tortured in the museum for a couple of hours, I deserved some pintxos! We went to A Fuego Negro and La Cuchara de San Telmo – both of which had some delicious pintxos. Apparently other people had the same idea, because both places were packed. What I found interesting was that you could order your food, they’d call your name once the food was ready, you’d bring it to your bar/high-boy, and you could easily walk out with no one being the wiser. So trusting!
Afterwards, the rain had cleared a little bit, so we attempted playing beach tennis at Playa de la Concha… but sadly, we suck and it wasn’t much of a game. C’est la vie.
We capped the night with dinner at Rekondo – a restaurant that’s supposed to have an amazing, old wine list and wine cellar with 100,000+ wines. It was featured in WSJ and Wine Spectator, plus, most importantly, it was actually open on a Sunday night! It was good, not amazing, but the daughter of the owner was very friendly and I enjoyed it.
