There are many shareable pleasures to be found on the extensive menu of Basque tapas. There are three main categories: Basque canapés (pintxos), cold items (hotzak), and hot items (beroak). In the canapé family, we loved txitxiki, a fat-cigar-sized sandwich of crusty bread stuffed with homemade chorizo hash. And you can't do better than the arraultza - crostini topped with sofrito, shards of chorizo, and a quivering, sunny-side-up quail egg. Of the hot items, go for bakailoa: a house-cured salt cod sliced very thin, topped with dice-sized nuggets of breaded, fried headcheese that crunches and then gushes pork fat and gelatin under your teeth. Order a bunch of tapas to share, but avoid the expensive nightly specials unless you're rolling in dough.
