My wife and I just finished a food trip over Portugal and Spain. We made efforts to eat at highly recommended restaurants in Lisbon, Seville, Granada, Bilbao, San Sebastian and Barcelona. We also at at Michelin restaurants (Azurmendi etc...) during our time at the Basque country.
What stood apart was the incredible value for quality food at Seville and San Sebastian, and in particular the modern tapas at Zeruko (San Sebastian) and Albarama (Seville) - for just a few euros you get an enjoyment at par with >2 star restaurants IMO. Coming from Singapore (where we are also known to be a food haven with lots of variety) and having traveled to many places in Asia, we were simply blown away by the tapas here.
As we are planning our next trip next, can anyne recommend any other places in Europe where we would also be able to enjoy high quality food at good prices?
