Pintxa 2016 San Antonio, Ibiza
This is a little known gastronomical delight, based in and around San Antonio that takes place every year during the Winter. This year the 8th edition of Pintxa runs from the 18th February until the 24th March every Thursday.
Participating restaurants and bars produce a small delicacy Pintxo a skewer or a delight on bread for €2.50 or a larger tapas for €4.50 both include a beer or wine.
So far for 2016, 34 establishments in San Antonio and 12 from the surrounding areas are taking part in what is becoming a real annual event and hard fought competition between the 46 establishments.
The tourist train will run a circular route around San Antonio and San Antonio Bay every Thursday taking guests between establishments as well as minibus transport for those establishments a little further out of town.
Visitors taking part are able to vote on their favourites (either via the printed map or via the Ibiza Things To Do app) alongside a team of Judges who will visit all each venue and selecting the top 10 who go through to the final with one lucky winner being selected as the Winner of Pintxa 2016.
Visitors to attend at least 15 establishments to take part in Pintxa 2016 will receive a free t-shirt as a thank you for their participation.
It seems a win-win. It’s a very organised, Ibizan style food crawl with free transport and a t-shirt for taking part. This is my idea of gastronomic heaven
It also dispels the myth that San Antonio is closed during the winter with 46 establishments taking part I definitely think there are a lot of us who are missing out on Ibiza during the winter without even knowing about it.
