Without a doubt, pintxos are one of the most typical delicacies of Euskal Herria. They come in all shapes, flavors and colors, there are practically no rules in their making.
In Lekeitio, a small town in Biscay, one of the best places to eat pintxos is in the Lumentxa tavern. It is a small place but with great variety and the best ham in town.
You can eat there pintxos and delicious sandwiches. They also have a good wine cellar from La Rioja.
The service is great, very nice waiters, but you have to take into account that at some hours of the day the place is so full that the waiters can be a bit stressed.
Lumentza is the perfect place to go for wine tasting and, if you feel like going out, it is a great option to eat something healthy and quick.
Lekeitio is beautiful and the Bar Maite rounds it off. Here you can enjoy drinks, delicious sandwiches and large at very reasonable prices. A nice atmosphere, contemporary music, attentive staff makes this an ideal place to regain your strength. It is open till late.
The Lekeitio Lopez sells the best ice-cream I have ever tasted. This ice-cream parlor has been around for years as my father always told me about his childhood and this ice-cream. If you visit Lekeitio there are several places where you can buy ice-cream, like Karraspio beach, the town's main intersection and the port. You can have the same ice-cream at any of these places. All ice-cream, from classic yogurt, strawberry or lemon and many flavors you have not tasted before, are made with natural fruits. I usually prefer to pick an ice-cream at the harbor and then go for a walk around the harbor or the Tala Lekeitio and San Juan, which is a beautiful spot.
