The Basque country around San Sebastian and Rioja have more Michelin stars, apparently,, than anywhere else aside from Paris. We found this to be completely credible. Amazing food. Our restaurant hit list included: ABac and Mocaroo in Barcelona; Mugaritz, San Sebastian; Neura in Bilbao just to name a few. There were so many more. One of our faves was a Pinxto bar in San Sebastian called Bar Zeruko. Lots and lots of El Bulli trained chefs. The food was amazingly good and beautiful to look at.
