The other day my Spanish friends brought me to another classic pincho bar on the famous Laurel street in Logroño. Quite literally a hole in the wall, Bar Cid is easy to miss and I hungrily hop from my favorite champi mushroom pincho to my favorite brochette with goat cheese, Spanish ham and raspberry sauce.

Logroño’s pincho scene hasn’t changed too frequently since I arrived last September. Comforted by familiar faces and dishes, the infamous Laurel street bursting with pincho bars that seem unchanged for decades. Change comes slowly in Spain, if it comes at all, something I both love and hate here. Around San Juan and Laurel, there are [...]
There is a fab new trend hitting pincho bars in Logroño! I’m in foodie heaven! Instead of serving up a little portion of something yummy skewered on a slice of bread like many of the traditional pinchos around town, many of the newer gastro-bars offer small portions of really delicious dishes combined with a small [...]
source In Logroño the variety of pinchos available can be somewhat daunting and overwhelming. With dozens of bars to chose from, where to begin? However, I have always been a half glass full kinda girl, so I prefer to think of it as so many new pinchos to try! You can find everything here, from [...]
The other day C and I went for pinchos on Laurel in Logroño. I know, I know, what a surprise. For some reason I was craving meat. After getting sick in Egypt and getting food poisoning, I was finally well enough to eat something besides rice. We decided to try a new bar, one that we always [...]
Last Friday was a bright and sunny day here in Logroño, so my friend C and I decided to break with tradition and go out for pinchos for lunch instead of dinner. After grabbing some of our go-to pinchos, we decided to try something new. We walked a away from Laurel to the end of [...]
I always pass by a fancy, modern looking bar on Laurel called D.O. Laurel. Being smack in the middle of wine country, I wasn’t surprised to find out that the bar was named after the Spanish D.O. meaning Denominación de Origen (Designation of Origen), which is used to classify Spanish wines. You won’t be surprised to find [...]
So one of my new favorite pinchos on Calle Laurel is at a bar called Quejas. Their speciality is a little sandwich pincho filled with jamón, melted cheese and grilled mushrooms. Perfect on a chilly night matched with one of their many delicious Rioja red wines, the quejas is quickly becoming one of my new [...]
This week’s pincho of the week is the infamous patatas bravas. Now I wish that I could claim that patatas bravas are native to La Rioja or are a typical tapa here, but I can’t. If anything, patatas bravas are probably the most famous tapa in Spain, along with tortilla de patata (man, Spain does [...]
This has been a very exciting week for me. I traveled up to Bilbao on Thursday to visit friends and finally meet fellow northern Spain blogger, Liz en España. We had an awesome night that ended with karaoke jam session that included rousing renditions of Bon Jovi and Katy Perry. When I got back home [...]
Another one of my favorite pinchos on Calle Laurel in Logroño has to be the piña y langostino at the Juan Pinchamé bar. It three slices of pineapple and three shrimp skewered together, covered in sea salt and oil and grilled served on bread. Somehow all these distinct flavors work together and taste incredible. Make [...]
Another wonderful pincho in Logroño can be found on Laurel at a bar/restaurant called el mesón del abuelo (literally, Grandpa’s Tavern) and it’s called pincho de sepia and it’s delicious! Sepia is Spanish for cuttlefish which is a type of squid/octopus, wait don’t stop reading-I promise it tastes like heaven! Basically it is chopped-up cuttlefish [...]
