If you want to taste traditional pastries, this is one of my favorite places in the city. The rice cake (pastel the arroz) is a must when you come to Bilbao.

This will be a short review. When in Bilbao, do not leave the city without trying the BIG sized, chocolate palmera from Arrese. You will not regret it. P.s. get the big one not the tiny ones :) its all about breaking off those chunks...More
