Dan Ansotegui opened the Bar Gernika in June of 1991. It is located on Boise's Basque Block and is a popular place. The owner, Dan Ansotegui, was born in Boise but both sets of his grandparents came from the Basque Country, from Ibarrangelu and Algorta. In both 1998 and 1999 Gernika was named Best Bar in Boise.<br><br> Basque sandwiches like chorizo, solomo and lamb dip are served for lunch and dinner along with some home made soups and desserts. Also mokaduak (small portions) like tortila patata, kroketak...<br><br> Among the Boise Basques, Dan's father Domingo was esteemed as a great tambourine player and musician, a tradition that Dan keeps going on with his "other" activities as a trikitixa (Basque diatonic accordion) and drums player and a music teacher.
