Cider houses

In the Basque Country you can find traditional cider houses where you can try menus including delicious ribs, cod omelettes and mouth-watering cheese. In the cider season you can enjoy the lively atmosphere and catch the cider as it flows right from the barrel to the cry of Txotx!

Until the end of April, it will be time to live the experience of txotx in the cider houses. The best cuisine in the Basque Country accompanied by seasonal cider that comes straight from the kupelas (barrels) to the cry of “txotx!”.

Part of the gastronomic essence of the Basque Country is summed up in tasting the typical menu of cider houses: cod omelette, fried cod with peppers and grilled txuleta and dessert Idiazabal cheese, quince and walnuts and cider on demand.

However, it is worth taking into account that it is usually done standing in the premises of the cider house, so it is interesting to attend well warm and with comfortable and warm shoes.
