Tucked in a secluded location in Mabolo, at the far end of the residential neighborhood of Villa Aurora, you’ll find a cozy hangout place that offers good food at reasonable prices. Away from the bustle of the crowd, Alburs is a perfect venue for unwinding and catching up with good friends.

Casual and Cosy Dining 

Bean bags and low round tables at the entrance of the restaurant makes a bold statement that you’ve come to the right place to chill. Just behind the bean bags are long tables ideal for groups and regular square tables with colorful tabletop designs free hand-painted by different artists. Its expansive al fresco dining gives off a comfortable and homey ambiance.

At the back is a wide counter where you get a glimpse of your orders being prepared for dispatching. And perched at the top of the counter are chalkboards with the restaurant’s menu. On the right side of the order counter is a closed air conditioned room with glass sliding doors ideal for exclusive functions and private gatherings. Diners at Alburs can choose from the different seating options.

All-in at Alburs

Having worked for five-star hotels and restaurants, Chef Gerard Albor, together with his friends decided to open a restaurant where Southsiders can relax, loosen up and feast on good food without putting a hole in their pockets. Alburs boasts an “All-in” menu with a variety of flavours from East to West.

If you’re feeling Italian, you can choose from their different pizza flavours (Sofia, 4Season, Monroe, Tiffany, Mario, Gaziano, Truffle, Jandrick and Berto’s All Meat) and pasta (Truffle Carbonara and Linguine Vongole).

Their best selling pizza is the 4Season with 4 flavours in one pizza – pepperoni, mushroom, grilled chicken and tomatoes and cheese. Chef Albors’ personal choice is the truffle pizza while our favorite is the Jandrick’s . What makes the Jandrick pizza a stand-out is that it has sausage meat in between the dough pizza fold on the side.

Seafood Pasta

 

If you’re feeling Asian, order their savoury Phat Pho or Seafood Pho. Then on the side, you can get some spring rolls. ( Vietnamese Spring Roll, Fresh Spring Roll and Vegatarian Spring Roll). Now, let me elaborate on their pho because their Seafood Pho is something worth raving about. The linguine-shaped rice noodles were firm and perfectly cooked, the broth was sweet and spicy at the same time. The subtle play between the herbs, greens and sweet-spicy broth combined with the firmness of the rice noodles made it a bowl of heaven. I claim it was such a hearty noodle soup! Alburs take on the Viet cuisine are so on-point!

If you’re famished and up for a filling meal, you can  chow on their  straightforward main courses: Confit Kawali with Adobo Rice, US Striploin Beef and Burger Steak. For only P290, you get yourself a tender and juicy striploin cut steak with buttered vegetables and creamy mashed potato on the side. This meal could’ve cost around P350+ in other resto. Their Confit Kawali with Adobo Rice at only P280 is also a must try! Slabs of meat deep fried into golden perfection with 2 choices of dips (gravy and vinegar) were an easy favorite. The abodo rice could even pass as a standalone winner!
