We open a new section in pintxos.es with June Yamaguchi. We are going to ask gastronomy-related people to choose their favorite pintxos from our list, and we will accompany them on that route, to know about the reason for their selection … while they taste them!

June Yamaguchi is already almost more local than Japanese. She was born in Hiroshima, but she has stayed in San Sebastian for 20 years. She has a lot to do with the growing number of Japanese tourists on our streets: Japan is the 9th country of origin of tourists visiting San Sebastián. June is tour guide, gastronomic contentes translator, press coordinator, and so on. All in all, she’s the key figure linking both cultures, through its project, Vascu Bishoku Club.

She loves pintxos and our bar culture, and she didn’t hesitate to accept our invitation. She did not think twice to choose 4 pintxos among the 99 best selection by the Michelin-starred chefs in Gipuzkoa. Specially because she wanted to do the route in the Center district of the city, his favorite area for eating pintxos.

She will drive us to San Marcial Bar and the legendary Gavilla pintxo

La Espiga, where se chose the Chorrera.

Antonio Bar to enjoy the Ravioli of Prawn in Martini Sauce.

And will end in Zazpi bar, where she also bet for their creamy Ravioli of Oxtail.

Will you join us?
