Travel like a local

El Huevo Frito


"The name (Fried Egg) fits in with the cheap-and-cheery local “caff” ambience, although being the Basque world, this is actually a bar, and the eggs are quails’ – adding glamour and a gooey layer to top-ranked pintxos, lined up on slates balanced on tins of tuna along the counter. This is also the spot for a good gilda (a skewered, oily dripping olive, anchovy and pickled chilli combo); for warming cazuelitas (a fry-up with bacon, ham or sausage for €3.50); and prize-winning (deboned and diced) pigs’ trotter pintxos. This place is a slice of Bilbao life: fabulous food without fanfare, plenty of Athletic Bilbao footie paraphernalia, framed cartoons mocking celebrities, a TV in the corner, and effervescent txakoli. The area, Indautzu, is home to several good bars, popular with an older (over 30) crowd."
