Duxton continues to evolve into a food hub and one of the latest is Alba 1836, offering fine dining quality Italian fare at this chi chi neighbourhood.
At a recent visit, I had the set lunch ($35) which started with a tasty Mediterranean seafood soup, followed by squid ink risotto and tiramisu for dessert. I found this to be really good value for money.
Service was impeccable, what one would expect in a fine dining setting.
From the a la carte menu I tried the Foie Gras ($30), a huge piece of fatty goose liver pan fried with cranberry sauce that is meant to be shared.
I also tried the Cheese Platter ($26), three kinds of goat, cow and mixed pieces with bread to go with.
Overall, was rather impressed by the quality. Good for a value for money business lunch.
