#ssrestweek: Gran Sol

  • Menéame0

The first San Sebastián Restaurant Week has officially come to an end.

I’ve seen some of the numbers, and there were tons of people dining out for 25 euros at some of the city’s most respected restaurants.

But in my opinion, one of the best part parts of SSRW was getting out to the neighboring towns’ restaurants that I’d never try otherwise.

Here are some photos of our meal at Gran Sol, the restaurant. This restaurant and pintxo bar, featured in the New York Times,  is under Bixente Muñoz.  Both are worth a try should you end up in the small, beautiful town of Hondarribi.

And finally, where Gran Sol really shone, the desserts. You could tell these were housemade, which is actually pretty rare here in culinary paradise.
