In mid-March, a new hospitality establishment opened its doors in Bertamiráns (specifically in the Plaza del Concello) under the concept traditional tavern and grocery with the aim of maintaining the essence of that type of business that was so common in the past.

Alejandro Deus, the young man from Carballo responsible for this project, tells us that the idea was born from his desire to start a solo business after having worked in renowned restaurants from the Galician capital such as A Horta do Obradoiro, Mama Peixe or Sindueña. “I was looking to return to my roots, to a more sinful and real type of purpose,” he details.

This was born like this place of fraternization that lends itself well to sharing experiences, disconnecting from fast paces or having a friendly conversation with our closest people. Alejandro states that “To think of a place where the protagonist or client, without pretensions of any kind, without food that is fashionable at that moment, with an endless offer of products….”.

Boards of Galician cheeses, Iberian sausages, croquettes and empanadas with very Galician flavors or classic versions such as carpaccioorella a fairare some of the proposals that we are going to find. “It’s singel food based on quality and with almost no intervention on any part to give all the protagonism to the product”, he emphasizes. And of course all this accompanied by two Galician classics like the came of cunca and pota coffee.

With a simple decoration in which rustic furniture stands out, this place in blue and beige tones makes us feel in those old taverns in which technology was not necessary because conversation was never lacking. Proof of this is the good reception that Casa Gallego has had since its opening. “People value the tranquility and closeness that they find in our house very positively,” says Alejandro.

This gastronomic offer is completed with a grocery area where we can find top quality Galician products: Preserves, Galician wines, specialty coffees, infusions, chocolate, honey, jams, legumes, fresh bread… “Priman os small producers with the intention of promoting a circular economy,” he assures.

Alejandro’s extensive experience in the world of hospitality leads him to admit that in his opinion The sector is in a complicated moment due to the battle between the small hotelier and the large chains.. “I think this phenomenon is most visible in Santiago and here, in Bertamiráns, the small entrepreneur model continues to be maintained,” he explains, “this is the best place to develop the best project.”

Before leaving Casa Gallego we are curious to why that nameand Alejandro explains to us that it is a kind of tribute to his grandfather and values that he transmitted to him. “He loved to socialize in these places and when I was little I would get up with him many times,” he recalls, “I have many memories of my time with me in a tavern.”
