Nestled in the Basque coastline, the town of Bermeo is known for its longstanding fishing tradition, so it’s no wonder that its cuisine is characterized by seafood.
Don’t miss out on the famous marmitako or tuna in Piperade (a garnish made of pepper, onion, and tomato), two of the region’s most traditional recipes that are common in Bermeo. Walk through the town’s old port and taste an amazing roasted txitxarro or hake a la koskera, a typical dish made with asparagus, egg, peas, and prawns or clams. Bermeo is also known for its canned fish products, including anchovies, tuna, and mackerel, to name a few. In addition to fish, veal is also very common in Bermeo and is usually served grilled in the form of a sirloin, fillet, or steak.
Txakoli de Vizcaya wine is another of the town’s most popular products, a great beverage to accompany all that there is to eat in Bermeo. The celebration of Las Magdalenas, celebrated alongside the towns of Elantxobe and Mundaka, is a perfect opportunity to explore the town and discover for yourself all that there is to eat in Bermeo.
