Do yourself a favor and get some of these delicious works of art the next time you are in Barcelona! What are Pintxos, you ask? Pintxos, pronounced "peen-chos," (can also be spelled Pinchos) are skewered food, typically with toothpicks, served all over Spain, but originated in Northern Spain. They can be meat, fish, vegetables, cheese and are often a combination of two or more.
When at a bar that serves pintxos, order a beer, grab the pintxos that you want and pay according to the number and type of toothpicks on your plate. Enjoy them with friends and if you're lucky enough to stop at Blai 9 while in Barcelona, marvel at each miniature food art before delighting your tastebuds!
