Donostia-San Sebastiàn: The Greatest Gastronomic Destination in the World
, an organization based in the UK and focused on consumer rights and independent advice on numerous subjects, named Donostia-San Sebastià
n the greatest gastronomic destination in the world
for 2012. Beating out 9 other culinary destinations, including Tokyo and Paris, the judges chose San Sebastián for its "exceptional eating experiences offered at all budgets, for the depth of its food culture, and for the creativity of the city’s chefs."
It's this opportunity to enjoy an exception eating experience, regardless of budget, that really sets the city apart, according to the expert panel. Judge Nina Caplan said, "many cities can provide you with a fantastic Michelin starred meal, but to be able to walk into almost any eatery, order three dishes and be confident they’ll all be fantastic is very rare." Regardless of the amount of money in your pocket, a night spent wondering the narrow cobbled streets of San Sebastián's Old Town in search of pintxos is sure to result in gastronomic pleasure.
