Galeria San Miguel is a restaurant serving Mexican cuisine in the trendy Galeria del Perú neighborhood of Barcelona, Spain.
Built in the early 1990s by the same family that owns the Perú restaurant chain, the restaurant opened in 2010 and is located in the same neighborhood as the new Solarium hotel in the center of Barcelona.
The restaurant serves a diverse menu of food, including chicken and lamb skewers, grilled meatballs, pork and beef tacos, chicken wings, quesadillas, salads, and desserts.
A small section of the restaurant is devoted to the theme of solarium, a term coined by the Peruvian government to describe solarium power plants that produce electricity from the sun.
Galeria has been serving local cuisine for the last eight years and has been recognized by the Barcelona city government for its sustainability efforts.
“The solarium concept has become a big part of our restaurant culture, as well as the culture of our customers,” said restaurant owner and chef Carlos López de Almeida.
“It has a strong connection to our history and culture.
We have always believed that the food should be sustainable and fair.
We are proud to work with our partners to improve our sustainability.”
The restaurant also provides free Wi-Fi and a large menu of free food items for the homeless.
The Solarium Hotel is slated to open in 2019, and the restaurant will remain open for business.
