It is a simple bar but the secret lies in their spicy sandwiches. Definetely worth trying but you have to like mayonaise since it has a lot.

If you want to try the most delicious and incredible sandwiches, you have to visit EL EME. You'll discover an original kind that you'd never ever have tried before. They use an special secret sauce that provides an amazing taste. One of the most typical places in Bilbao, always full of people eating TRIANGULOS there or asking them to take away. If you are walking in the area at 8 or 9 in the evening, you'll come across quite a lot of people with packages from this bar :)
You can't miss the chance to try them! totally recommended and frecuently visited by me

The place might be not very cool or "pretty", maybe it's too small and it's always crowded, but the sandwiches they sell are just awesome! The speacial bread they have, the special sauce... they are really good! and nasty!
A famous place for locals. I try to go once every year.

There's a reason why the places is usually busy, their sandwiches are good! Definitely worth checking out. My girlfriend and I stopped by here a few times since we were staying close by.

This tiny place serve great sandwiches for resonable price. I paid for three sandwiches and glass of red wine around ten Euro. The wine wasn´t nothing to write home about but the sandwiches were very nice with great fillings. This place is very tiny. There are around 10 places to sit down. In the back is the sit-down restaurant. But it was close in the time, when I went there.
