Salt Tasting Room has partnered with Bosa Foods for the San Sebastián Experiment and it sounds delicious. On a recent trip to Spain, Bosa sourced a variety of delicacies new to most Canadian palettes and have partnered with Salt to get them in front of Vancouver foodies. For free.

“I am really curious to see how Vancouver responds to this kind of tapas-style program,” said Sean Heather, owner of Salt Tasting Room. “Will guests come for drinks and accept this kind of free tapas experience – will they embrace the concept the way it’s embraced in Spain? Either way, the San Sebastián Experiment is a great opportunity to try some delicious Spanish-style tapas in a unique format.”

With titillating plates piled with mixed olives, white anchovies, six-month aged manchego cheese, bone-in serrano ham, salchichon iberico and chorizo sausages, and marinated calamari rings, these Spanish goodies will have mouths watering.

Located in Spain, San Sebastián is a tiny town with a big culinary reputation. This hamlet has evolved into a foodie Mecca in recent decades, with more world-renowned restaurants, taverns and bars per square mile than any other in the country. But what makes the San Sebastián experience truly unique is its bevy of pintxos bars, the Basque iteration of tapas. These bars are the corner stone of the region’s culinary culture.

Curious foodies who are ready for a taste of San Sebastián can visit Salt Tasting Room between September 8 and October 11. Order a tasting flight, glass of wine, beer or sherry from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m and settle in for complimentary tapas. Yum!
