Reunirse: Alba Restaurante Espanol Opens at Estancia Mall

For most establishments, change is key in staying relevant in an evolving culinary landscape. But for iconic institutions that have endured the test of time, consistency and tradition are what sets them apart from the rest...


That characteristic sticky thickness of the rich sauce in the signature callos, the tender and savory richness of the lengua and pure decadence of the canonigo remain unchanged for over 67 years. Change, it seems, is temporarily put on hold in an institution driven by tradition. And rightly so. Since 1952, Don Anastacio de Alba served rustic Spanish dishes at various restaurants that bears his name. Alba Restaurante Espanol, one of the metro's iconic dining institutions, continues this tradition with hearty and authentic Spanish cuisine prepared in the old-fashioned and old school style just the way it should be. It's a lasting legacy now run by the family's second generation, serving all their popular dishes tediously prepared in the same manner since the day it opened more than half a century ago. These rich flavors can now be experienced once more at their fifth and newest location at Estancia Mall...
