The traditional “tapeo” in Pamplona is a form of culture to enjoy in a good company while you taste the “pinchos” (“pintxos” in the local language; “tapas” as they are well known worldwide) that different bars are used to offer. These tapas have been prepared with special care by the different chefs in each establishment.read more

El último fin de semana de junio y primero de julio del año pasado se celebró la primera edición de la Feria de Cerveza Artesanal de Pamplona, bautizada como Sanferbeer Jaialdia y organizada por Morlaco Beer. Este nombre, como podréis suponer, viene del hecho de que se hace justo antes de San Fermín y sirve para animar aún más al personal y mentalizarse antes del evento del año en Pamplona. Se echaba de menos un evento de estas características en Pamplona, teniendo en cuenta la cantidad de cerveceras navarras que existen en la actualidad. Pues bien, ya llegan los Sanfermines y ya llega una nueva edición del Sanferbeer, que se celebrará el 22 y 23 de junio en la Antigua Estación de Autobuses, ¡la semana que viene!read more
Today we are going to write about kalimotxo or calimocho, a drink whose ingredients are red wine and coke, and it is really popular in Spain. Some days ago, we commented in our social networks that Pepsi "discovered" the "cali-mocho", being advertised as a luxury drink and cocktail in the United States. This made people react in social media, because rediscovering what is perfectly known for lots of people generates controversy.read more
In a few days one of the best festivals in the world will begin: San Fermin (or Sanfermines). This amazing Spanish festival is celebrated in Pamplona (Navarre). The people living in Pamplona are already getting nervous. They are probably busy preparing the typical white trousers, the red handkerchief and organizing different gastronomic events with their friends. Some people coming from abroad don’t worry too much about preparations. They will just add a red handkerchief to their normal outfit and they will eat a sandwich somewhere. However, there is still a good number of people looking for good restaurants to enjoy the festival in a gastronomic way too.
If we join tradition and gastronomy, one of the things we can think of are, without any doubt, the cider houses. Thinking about these places and the cod omelet or cutlet we will taste makes our mouth water. Although there are cider houses in different places, in this article we will focus on the Basque ones. We can say that the birthplace of the cider in the Basque Country is located in Astigarraga, just 5 km from San Sebastian.read more
The shots you drank last night is the first thing you remember when you are hangovered with that terrible headache. However, when that friend asked the usual question, “Shots?”, it sounded like a great idea. If the question comes together with psychological sentences like “we are not all together since ages...” or “you never go out with me...”, then chances are high that the round of shot will happen. The bad part is that it was just the first round, then another friend will follow, then another one, and we all know how this ends...read more
Leon, located in Castile and Leon (Spain), is one of those cities that you have to visit if you love to eat and enjoy every bite. Leon must be included in the list of the best places to go for tapas too, because with ten euros you can visit six or seven bars, taking a short beer (zurito, penalti ...) and tasting a tapa in each bar (in some bars even choosing it!). Basically, if you are passing through or on vacation, it is cheaper to go for tapas than to buy at the supermarket ;)read more
