Ibiza Gastronomy: Pintxa Sant Antoni IV

The fourth edition of the annual San Antonio Thursday tapas and pintxos route

The fourth edition of the annual San Antonio Thursday tapas and pintxos route starts next week on the 16th Feb and continues until the 22nd March. It's tremendously popular, not only because of the economic prices - €2 for a pintxo and a beer, wine or soft drink, and €4 for a tapa and drink – but because of the wonderful atmosphere generated in the bars on winter nights.

Whether you're a couple, group of friends or a singleton, this tremendously social way of eating and drinking, without the confines of regimented tables is a great way to have fun. It's also ideal for sampling lots and lots of different food in the same evening. These days pintxos – morsels of meat, fish and vegetables anchored to a sliver of bread with a toothpick – have become culinary works of art and a source of great pride with the chefs who produce them.

As you can see, there are three geographical zones, and new for this year is a tapa train which will convey gastronauts between the bars and extra buses have been laid on to take punters from Ibiza town home late at night.

The pintxa route is also a competition to find the best food, as voted for by clients, and last year it was won by the Hostal Mari, which features again in the 2012 edition. As always, there's a PDF file with all the bars and a map which can be downloaded from the Pintxa 2012 site.
