Andra Mari, San Sebastián, in Calle Zabaleta 42 in the neighborhood of Gros
Andra Mari reopened less than 2 weeks ago with new staff and new kitchen leaded by 2 chefs full of will and expertise who have joined the ownership: Angel Palacios and Luis Arrufat.
They have a new philosophy wanting to introduce Tapas in a world of Pintxos, why not? Maybe they can clarify the difference to all of us! In fact, they try to do so by writing interesting information on the subject in one big menu page.
Since people usually are not alone when going on these food adventures, here at Andra Mari the servings are larger than Pintxos which makes it easier to share an order. I'm quite sure the kitchen would take care of the situation in case you are on your own.
Here follow some pictures of great food...Tapas or Pintxos?:
|patatas bravas, with the right touch of "picante"|
|papada (jowl in English) curada la mascarada|
|molleja (sweetbread in English) de ternera a baja temperatura|
|lengua (tongue) con setas (hongos, mushrooms in English), did you ever notice that both have the same sort of consistency, meaning "texture"?|
|cheesecake with local cheese and combined with crumble and apple sauce, therefore you don't loose the cheese flavor which usually occurs when combining it with berries|
|bizcocho de yogur y albaricoque|
|ninyo-yaki de chocolate y naranja, which is a sort of japanese modified dessert, similar to a bignè (cream puff in English)|
