BARATXURI’S BASQUE DINING CLUB
Meaning ‘nook’ or cosy corner in Basque, txoko is a tradition dating back to 1870 in San Sebastián. Friends gather on the down low to eat, drink, sing and talk – and don’t forget the cooking.
Modern txoko champions using fresh produce and cooking from scratch, exemplifying slow food. Much akin to an English pub (but tastier), these socials are a cultural staple in Northern Spain.
Baratxuri’s Joe loves it so much, he brought it to Manchester. Join us for our very own steak society. The next txoko lands Wednesday 5th July.
In the spirit of curation, Exhibition’s TXOKO focuses on a new rare breed each time – this time, try out the Capricho De Oro, named for it’s golden fat. Hailing from Rubia Gallega cattle, an exclusively grass fed animal, the diary cattle are a minimum of 12 years old when they are produced for beef (after many happy years living outdoors on the pastureland of Galicia)! The whole side is hung and dry aged for a minimum of 50 days, giving a more tender texture and intense flavour – get ready to try very possibly the best beef you’ve ever tasted.
Tickets are priced at £100 – including the steak of the month with a selection of traditional Basque sides such as tortilla, tomato salad, jamón Ibérico and padron peppers. Suitable for 2-4 people (depending on the healthiness of one’s appetite).
Reserve your table by securing a ticket HERE, first come first served. We’ll require a non-refundable £25 deposit to secure your steak. A member of the team will be in touch to confirm your preferred table time.
