Overview

Mimo (formerly San Sebastian Food) began in San Sebastian, where founder Jon Warren settled after giving up his career in the London finance industry. He fell in love with the tiny Basque region of Spain and began to give tours of the famed bars in San Sebastian’s old part. This evolved into a gourmet food & wine shop, which opened in 2014, and then grew to include a luxe cooking school, opened in 2015, devoted to the diffusion of Basque and Spanish cuisine. Now Mimo is expanding its culinary tourism concept to other cities in Spain to bring its award-winning experiences to even more delicious regional cuisines.

This was a nice gift shop in the heart of Donostia-San Sebastián. I was able to find nice, authentic azafrán (saffron), chocolates, and a really cool pintxos reciepe book that is bound with a wooded cover---which I bought to take back as gifts.
