Thanks to dealgrocer.com, if not for them I wouldn't know that there is this great restaurant located in Westgate Alabang.
Alba is a Spanish fine dining restaurant. If you choose not to avail the buffet, they also serve set meals, wine and other liquors.
The place is small but the interior design made it appear spacious. Furniture and fixtures doesn't look old. ambiance is cozy, high-end, luxurious and real Spanish. Table setting is commendable, waiters did it perfectly.
The food is great. There are few dishes compared to Yakimix, Buffet 101, and Vikings but each dish is made of quality. A different approach and a different taste. Its really delicious.
Clear Chicken Soup
Enselada dela Casa (A variety of crisp lettuce and fresh vegetables)
Lengua Sevillana (Stewed ox-tongue with mushroom & olives in rich sherry brown sauce)
Berenjenas al Horno (Baked eggplant with anchovies and three kinds of cheese)
Paella Valenciana (Valencian rice with chicken, pork, seafood and vegetable)
Grilled chicken topped with mango. This is superb, they grilled it perfectly and it blends perfectly with the mango.
Grilled Pork. A different approach in marinating.
Espaguetis dela Casa (Spaghetti with homemade fresh tomato sauce topped with chopped friend chorizo de Bilbao and cheese)
Spanish cold cuts (Chorizo, Embotidos, Sausage, etc)
Baked Potato. Im suprised with this one because at first I thought its just potato but inside there are bits of chorizos. delicious.
Spanish Sardines! My favorite. Spicy and fresh.
This is the best dish they offer. Conchinillo Asado (Tender oven-roasted suckling pig)
This is the first time I tasted something like this. I am a big fan of pork but this one, this is Superb! This caramelize inside your mouth. Amazing and done perfectly. I will definitely go back to Alba because of this. This is a must try.
Braso de Mercedes
Mixed Fresh Fruits
If you'll notice the serving is different. Here's the story. Its almost closing time and I'm about to try the desserts. No more Leche Flan, so I asked the waiter if they are still going to refill. By the way his name is Kevin. He replied that they wont refill anymore but he proactively offered that he can get one for me. And here it is Beautifully served in a separate plate. I'm happy because he did an extra mile.
Also, this is the best Leche Flan I ever tasted. I bet once you tasted this you'll forget your name.
Customer Service is something that they don't forget. We entered and we we're accommodated right away. Since we did not made a reservation, we were seated on the second floor because the ground floor is occupied. So I suggest if you have plans of dining here you should make a reservation. Another thing that made me happy here is that the waiter offered that he will be serving us the soup since we were on the second floor so it wont be difficult for me. Everytime im finish with my plate a waiter will come and get my empty plate, I dont need to call them anymore. Iced tea was refilled right away. They are focused on their customers. Waiters are attentive, neat and cheerful. I will definitely dine here again.
