La Mejillonera

SPANISH RESTAURANT

"There are two things locals go to La Mejillonera for: patatas bravas (a native Spanish tapa made of fried potatoes topped with a warm sauce, which differs depending on the region of Spain you’re on, but usually has a mayonnaise component to it) and mussels. There are a few different sauces for the shellfish, but the mildly spicy tomato dressing is definitely the way to go."

Casa Urola

SPANISH RESTAURANT (NOT VISITED)

"As head of a centre for gastronomic excellence in a city with Europe’s highest concentration of Michelin stars per capita, deciding where to take dinner guests is not a decision to take lightly. The Basque Culinary Center’s Joxe Mari Aizega often comes to this restaurant and pintxos bar, indistinguishable in its old-fashioned looks from others in Parte Vieja, but serving exceptional food."

Bodegón Alejandro

SPANISH RESTAURANT (NOT VISITED)

"This is a bit like a dungeon, but in a good and glowing way. Its proximity to Mercado de la Bretxa made it the bolthole of choice for traders, a place to tuck in to cheap fish and txakoli (sparkling dry white wine), pork and cider after work."
