Pintxos are bitesize bar snacks generally involving a tasty morsel ‘pinched’ to a piece of bread with a cocktail stick. Originating in the Basque country they are served in bars throughout Mallorca, and particularly popular in Palma where there is even an official weekly pintxos bar crawl called La Ruta Martiana. We’ve selected 10 of the best bars around the island to wash down a pintxo or two.
Whilst not particularly enticing from the outside and part of a small chain, Tast Avenidas boasts a super-central location and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Most importantly, however, it serves some excellent pintxos and tapas. The various mini sirloin steaks are outstanding and the octopus on toast with Iberican ham is a must-try.
