Quail’s Egg Pintxos by May Lawrence

San Sebastien has the best pintxos not only because of the quality for the ingredients and flavours but for their presentation. One of the fun things to do is do go from one Pintxos Bar to another and to a tasting of a few Pintxos in each bar. This one with the quail’s egg caught my attention because of the richness of the colour of the yolk and how the whole egg just beautifully drapes over the eggplant and capsicum. This was taken inside a Pintxos bar that was lit with fluorescent and llamp.
