TravelPod Member ReviewsSilken Indautxu Hotel Bilbao
This hotel was located a walkable distance from the old city and the main museums. Room rate was very good. Great little cafes in the Plaza across the road for breakfast.

... all over the place. (I think it means death to the infidels.. - only joking they are very friendly)

... is rich, smooth and a little spicy. We loved it. The region does some tasty whites, as well, but is mostly known for its reds, which we frequently buy back home in the U.S. It was great to get to taste them at the source, with wines of a much higher quality than we find (or voluntarily pay for) at the grocery store.
We explored the tiny town of Haro, stopping in a bar populated exclusively by locals for a quick pintxo, then got back on the road for ...
... with... meatballs! Now of course the meatballs were made of beef which meant Anoop couldn’t eat them. We just stared at the plate in mild hysterics at this point. So, good old Minh-Yen started eating because we couldn’t just leave them there. She was already so full and now had to try to eat 4 huge meatballs. Anoop and I “helped” by eating the fries and I helped cut the meatballs into bits so it looked like we were all digging in. ...
