Hubby was craving for some paella so we checked out Alba. It's been a few years since we last ate here. They actually have a lunch buffet priced at php695 but there was a big party (literal party of about 40) downstairs so we decided to order ala carte and we stayed upstairs. Didn't want to be jostling in line with strangers 128518
After MUCH discussion, we decided to get the paella negra, gambas and eggplant with three kinds of cheese. Our server was super kind and helpful. He even served us soup from the buffet cos he knew the paella would take a while. Leisurely chatted while eating bread and butter.
The gambas arrived first and it was hands down one of the best (if not the best) I've tried! Ugh! Even dipped the bread in the spicy oil! The eggplant arrived next. Not really a fan of eggplant but this dish combined the different tastes of the cheese well without losing the taste of the eggplant.
After a few minutes, the pièce de résistance arrived! We dug in right away! The rice was cooked just right and it was almost swimming in the ink! There were also some pieces of squid and shrimp. Asked for some lemon to round off the taste 128077🏼 after a while I realized that I'm not really a fan of eating black stuff 128517 though it was super good, I just had to stop. And rinse my mouth! Eating this will definitely give you black teeth and a black tongue 128514
5 stars overall - ambience, service, food and waiting time. A bit pricey but worth it IMO.
Total bill was 1700.

There are a lot of good food in their buffet menu but nothing really "off the charts". Its my 4th time to eat in Alba, their menu stays the same like any regular buffet places, and whenever i eat at Alba my food choices are somehow templated - Paella Valenciana, Crispy Pata, Cochinillo Asado, Callos A La Madrileña and Baked Mussels.

But really, what i look forward to is the Flan Al Caramelo, its a milk custard baked over caramelized sugar...in simpler words Leche Flan!

Creamy, soft, not too sweet and a bit tangy (probably because of the sliced oranges on top). Best paired with coffee. #12days

We searched for paella that resembles Dos Mestizos’ paella and we almost found it here in Alba. If you haven’t read my review about Dos Mestizo, their place is located in Boracay (Station 2) and they have the yummiest Paella Valenciana for us.

Going back to Alba, as we reached their place, I realized that its interior was almost same with Dos Mestizos as well. Candle lighted on each table and string band serenading customers. They also have a buffet dinner, but we chose their ala carte menu since our main purpose was to try their paella. We ordered their pumpkin soup, fried calamari and the star of the night, Paella Valenciana.

The soup was for hubby and the fried calamari was for me. If you have tried Fish & Co.’s fried calamari, it tastes like one. As for their Paella Valenciana, as what I've mentioned earlier, it was almost similar to Dos Mestizos’ Valenciana. Dry and separate rice and not creamy with flavorful variety of meats and shellfish. I just hope they can add more shrimps on it.

We left the place happy and full, but the search isn’t over yet.

Was able to try the dinner buffet and it was worth your money. Of course there was no paella negra and crispy squid but the other menu options made up for them. The cochinollo of course was superb, also the dessert options which included my favorite caninigo!

... shining, shimmering, splendid (guess which song that came from?), exactly how the olive oil glows on those gambas and chorizos! This is my take on living dangerously!

Personally, the gambas are close to perfect. Very well cooked with only a slightly spicy salty flavor. The olive oil serves as a good mixing base for all other seasoning. Good sized too and very generous for one order.

The chorizos are as tasty as the gambas. You know these are genuine Spanish Chorizos by their density and color. These were fried just right so they were easy to chew. Typical of chorizos, their spicy mix comes from a concoction of chili peppers, cumin, oregano and lots of garlic! (I love garlic!)

For now, just for now, no diet, no diet! Never mind the fat, live for the moment!

Went here for a dinner buffet and they had a nice selection of paella, tapas, lechon, and many more. I particularly liked their Berenjenas al Horno (baked eggplant with anchovies and three cheeses), Paella Filipino (with sisig and conchillo), and Lenguini al Pesto (pesto linguini with tomato sauce). For dessert, the chocolate mousse cake with brownies was simply to die for! For 800 php per head it's really quite worth it. Needless to say all my friends and I enjoyed dining here :) A must recommend!

At P600/head, their Sunday buffet is a really good deal considering it features "special occasion" favorites like cochinillo, lengua and paella. The paella was excellent - just the right amount of moist and tasty. I enjoyed just about everything from the appetizer dips to the canonigo and everything in between. Service is cordial and attentive. We held my daughter's baptism here a few years ago and our guests were very happy. Don't forget to order some sangria. Cheers!
