Itxaso Tapas Bar
Who has already been in Spain knows how hard it is to find a good tapas Bar outside the country. I was so happy to discover this great restaurant/bar thanks to the invite of Wein aus Spanien: the Itxaso, a small and cute tapas bar with Spanish flair at Pestalozzistraße. When entering you’ll stand in front of the bar and a couple of steps lead up to the dining area. One more winebar is attached to it.
Itxaso Tapas Bar Pinxtos & Tapas
Together with Wein aus Spanien we tried ten different wines. Bloggers had sent their favourite Spain pictures beforehand and sommelier Peter F. Holm chose matching wines with the image. Not always easy as he told us. The pairings were super interesting and I loved to learn more about wine. With the wine various tapas were served. Super delicious tapas! On Itxaso’s menu you’ll find a great variation of pinxtos and tapas, such as: Patatas bravas con alioli, Pimientos de Padrón (one of my favorites – ordered them twice), Pulpo a la gallega 2.0, Tabla de jamón y queso. Moreover, they have a changing Tapa & Croqueta de la semana. As dessert they serve Churros con chocolate. Yummy! Do I have to add more?
