I was recently lucky enough to go to dinner at the Alba Ristorante in London with some friends., not just once, but enjoyed it enough the first time to go for a second meal.
I will review our meals over a few blog posts over the next few days (or well at least over the next week or so).
Unlike a lot of Italian restaurants I have been too, the menu here was not full of pasta and pizza, on the contrary it was very different and as a result much more interesting and refreshing.
For my first visit, I had the Smoked Duck Salad followed by the Calves’ Liver.
Well to give the dish, its proper name, petto d’amamtra all’arancia or in English, smoked duck breast with lambs lettuce & Italian orange slices.
The duck was very thinly sliced and had a delicate flavour which was slightly overpowered by the orange and the dressing.
However it was still delicious and I enjoyed it very much.
