Restaurant: San Sebastian!

And so taking you up to culinary Basque country of my Spain. Here the choices are endless and very renown foods, however for nostalgia’s sake we as a family remember fondly only one. I like to tell you a bit more on a single post for a well deserve credit.

In my road warrior rides in my Spain and even coming down from France to the beautiful city of San Sebastian or Donostia in basque ,we enjoyed dining at Juanito Kojua in the old town section.

We really were not looking for it and did not know anything about it, just walking the city and hunger strikes; we look up some description of the menu and went in. Little did we know, we were stepping into San Sebastian’s culinary history! Again great souvenirs with the family.

Located in the Old Town of Donostia/San Sebastian,at Calle Puerto 14, you will find the emblematic Juanito Kojua, a restaurant that offers genuine Basque cuisine made with the freshest and best quality products of the season. In its menu, you can find a wide variety of game products, as well as spoon dishes, fish and homemade delicacies. Taste the best of Donostiarra cuisine in Juanito Kojua. Opened since 1947 ,specializing in traditional Basque cuisine.

This modest spot began as a meeting place for fishermen’s eating clubs and has persisted over the years because its chefs always seem to manage to get the top of the catch. There are four dining rooms of various traditional décor, but you don’t go here so so much for ambience as for the food! A must in San Sebastian, and we love it.
