El Eme, Bilbao

5 General Concha
Tel: 34 94 443 4298's insider take:

Over 50 years old, this place—currently run by the fourth generation of the same family—has a cheerful bar in its front room and an informal sit-down restaurant in back. It's locally famous for its pintxos, especially the fried croquettes and the triángulos (triangles) and torres (towers): stacked finger sandwiches with alternating layers of ham, egg, or anchovies, dressed with mayo and the house's secret sauce. A glass of txakoli, the slightly effervescent local white wine, or a kalimocho (a mix of red Rioja wine and cola) makes the perfect accompaniment.
