San Sebastián's old town is best known for its pintxo bars (the Basque version of tapas), and with at least one on every block, competition is stiff. For the last few years, the bar drawing the most praise is A Fuego Negro (Black Fire), which serves up a selection of classic pintxos with a twist that goes hand in hand with the part bar, part art exhibit interior. Expect un-pintxo flavors such as mole, liquorice, mint, or ras al-hanout. The most popular dish is the Kobe beef burger served on a ketchup-infused bun with a side of banana chips. For dessert, choose the spilled marijuana planter where the plant itself is actually a green sugar cookie and the incredibly realistic spilled dirt and roots are made of chocolate.—Guy Fiorita
