Not one to stray from the classics, I've only tried two dishes at Gernika - paella and the Lamb Grinder. The latter is a sandwich of sliced lamb, sauteed onion, pepper, and mushroom, with melted cheese on crusty bread. With a side of au jus for dipping, it is truly finger licking good. Jeff and I both ordered Lamb Grinders and an indulgent dose of croquetas. These little fried balls are made with butter, onion, chicken, flour and milk. I ate my share of croquetas while studying abroad in Madrid, but Gernika hits it on the nose with the perfect combination of crunchy exterior and smooth, rich filling.
I know this is a spot that I'll frequent again and again, and if you're ever in Boise, I highly recommend fitting a trip to the Basque Country into your visit.
