There's a variety of pintxos at this wonderful little Casco Viejo bar, but the real reason to come is to sample the ones made with anchovies. You may think you don't like this small fish, but the fresh ones here, topped with spider crab cream, sea urchin roe, or jardinera (finely diced peppers in a sharp vinaigrette), are guaranteed to change your mind. A steady stream of locals and tourists file in and out of the small square bar (whose only real stab at decor is the anchovy pintxos menu printed on a large fish-shaped piece of cardboard behind the bar) to nosh and toss back txakoli.
