On Calle Laurel in the heart of the old town you can find an abundance of small culinary delights called ‘pintxos’, a variation of the more widely known tapas but usually served on a skewer. Along this street there are an incredible 73 bars, each one serving a different pintxo.
There are pintxos of all types, some sophisticated and modern, others more traditional like the ‘cojonudo’, a trio of local Riojan ingredients – fried egg, chorizo and alegría (a spicy chilli pepper). Naturally you’ll need an accompanying glass or two of Rioja to complete the true Logroño experience.
