We’ll start at a bar that’s been a local favorite since the 1970s. Here you’ll try a selection of the best mussels in town with dry Basque cider.

Stop At: Zapore Jai, C. de San Jerónimo, 21, 20003 San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, Spain

Next, you’ll dive into the fascinating world of Spain’s most famous delicacy: cured Iberian ham. We’ll introduce you to a family-run gem stocked with Basque and Spanish gourmet products.

By the time we leave, you’ll have an understanding of the differences between them—and a favorite!
