As a food lover, pinchos have become an important part of my life so I thought I'd share my "Pincho Picks" periodically as I take photos of food! Bar Angel is one of the many bars on the pincho street here known as "Calle Laurel" or just "Laurel" as the locals call it. It's a classic pincho that I've eaten about 3 times since being here, and it doesn't disappoint. When I was googling Logroño it's the main food photo I saw and remembered, and I just had to try it.
The name of this pincho is "El Champi" and it's the only one available at Bar Angel. With good reason too! You can see the workers cook the mushrooms and shrimp right in front of you and it doesn't take that long either. This place has been consistently busy when I go on the weekend and is dipped in a garlic type oil with another flavor I haven't been able to pinpoint, but I enjoy it! End of Fulbright grant goal: figure out what's in the sauce. Another plus is that this pincho with a glass of wine is only 2 euros so it's easy to eat and keep it moving to the next pincho bar. You can't beat that!
What country do you think has the most delicious food?
I'd rather splurge on a good meal than a nice hotel, wine than water and plane tickets than club covers. Traveling and eating are my two favorite things, so follow my journey to see where I go and eat next! I'm just living my best life.
