Imagine how my heart broke, going to La Viña in San Sebastián and finding it closed for 4 consecutive days. 😭😭😭Imagine how I grew desperate checking on other bars and restos in San Sebastián, hoping their version of tarta de quezo comes close to La Viña's. Imagine how I felt upon learning La Viña has reopened as soon as I've left San Seb and arrived back in Madrid! 😡
Thank God for friends who visited San Sebastián soon after we've left and brought back --- drumroll, please --- an entire cake for us to devour in Madrid. 🤗😋😀 All that creamy, yummy, burned on top 🍰🍽🎂goodness packed in a red box! You don't know happiness until that first bite.
When in San Sebastián, you'd do your txikiteo to complete your Basque experience. In Parte Vieja along Calle 31 Agosto, just a stroll away from Yglesia de Santa Maria, Atari Gastroteka, La Cepa and La Cuchara de San Telmo, is this culinary gem. Your Basque guide won't be lying if he says it's the world's best cheesecake! Seriously.
