El Globo


Excellent black pudding and crab pintxos.

"Exposed brick walls and stylish low-hanging lights provide a warm, upmarket ambience for a well-heeled crowd, many from nearby government building Palacio de la Diputación. These pintxos are so plump, moist and beautifully crafted that anywhere else they’d be party food. Listed on blackboards, each reads like a Michelin restaurant starter: alcachofas en tempura con crujiente de jamón (artichoke tempura with crispy jamón); anchoa marinada con huevos de lumpo y salsa tartára (marinated anchovy with lumpfish eggs and tartar sauce), txangurro gratinado (spider crab au gratin). The recommended strategy is to find a stool at the right-angled bar and try whatever takes your fancy that’s within reach. El Globo also has a seating area and standard menu that includes, unusually for Spain, a good selection of salads (from €6)."
