Bodega Mateo Ruíz

Bodega Mateo Ruiz is just down the street from Feria Market, and is at one and the same time a bar tipica, and not so tipica. It’s certainly of a typical style in appearance, with a small bar area and kitchen, several tables (including a barrel) and plenty of tiling, including in this case a couple of ceramic benches. The establishment was founded in 1918 by Mateo’s father, but as a wine wholesaler selling wines of Valdepeñas, the bar as it is today changed in 1983, now run by Mateo and his son, and is specialising in a wide range of salt cod (bacalao) dishes, of which we tried the trademark bacalao frito (excellent) and a bacalao in aceite. There are other typical dishes too, including gambas al ajillo, tortilla and ensaladilla, but it’s the bacalao for which the bar is now famous.
