Sister restaurant to nearby Piperade, this tiny tapas bar is located in Jackson Square just a few blocks from the Embarcadero. Behind a light-green and glass façade, the restaurant contains approximately three dozen seats, including a large communal table set with metallic Eames chairs. Additional tables are positioned beside an orange-painted brick wall illuminated by electric candles. Drawing on Basque traditions, the menu includes dishes like the chilled prawn huevos diablo (deviled eggs) with guindilla peppers and pimentón (smoked paprika). The eponymous bocadillos (traditional Spanish sandwiches) are filled with aged Serrano ham or Catalan sausage with shaved Manchego.
