Their chicken is always a great treat! One of a kind and very tasty. A special plate that is a must -try is the sizzling tofu. It's really good!

I usualy come to this place because most of my friends chose to have the reception here after the christening. Great selection of food. The place is not that big but still it gives you the cozy feeling of the old houses.

Alba Restaurante Espanol

Reviewed By Bolivarsmoker - Clitheroe, United Kingdom

Visited the Alba Spanish restaurant in Quezon City for Monday lunch. The outside looks unprepossessing being on the corner of a busy crossroad, however once inside the restaurant we were surprised to find it almost full. The restaurant is designed to look a little like an hacienda. Wooden tables with place mats are quite well spaced from each other and of a good size. Background Spanish music was not too loud nor obtrusive. Service was efficient and knowledgeable. The al-a-carte menu is extensive and wholly and authentically Spanish. We chose fresh juices and then a mix of 6 hot and cold tapas and then had desert and coffee. The quality of the food was excellent and it is easy to see why it was full on Monday lunchtime. There is an extensive choice of wine but we did not partake of any. At the back of the restaurant is a counter selling various types of home-made Spanish sausages and cooked meats. US$45 for 2.

Reviewed By Hannah Ishael T - Manila, Philippines

The main branch in Binondo (Chinatown here in the Philippines) is still my favorite although their goodies are now available in several locations. I suggest stocking up on their freshly made soy milk as well as their classic hopia and their wide selection of mooncake variants.

Yabu House of Katsu

Reviewed By TinglOrq - Quezon City, Philippines

Delicious Japanese food no doubt with fresh ingredients and the staff are really nice. The only downside is the place is too small for the amount of clientele they attract. But, if you are not in much of a hurry to be seated or you are there on lean hours, you can't go wrong with this place.

Been here many times. Went here on my birthday, and boy was it the best! We reserved two weeks prior and when the time came, we went there and the staff escorted us to our table. Everything was clean and staff are more than willing to give you any extra utensils you need.
Food and drinks were incredibly diverse and tasty. I fancied the sushi and the meats too much and got full too fast. Thankfully, I had 3 hours to pace myself. I hit the desserts hard and went home bloated and happy.
Tips:
-Try to get Reservations at least a week before. The waiting line could take around 30-mins to 1 hour.
- Some dishes have a sign saying that they are cold to the tummy (like the shashimi and oysters.) Don't eat them first, eat something else or you may get a stomach ache.

Yabu. The House of Katsu

Reviewed By Catsi C

Go-to restaurant for a weekday lunch out. Dined out with my colleagues past 2pm and we are still 4th in line. Went to nearby stores during the waiting time.
Consistent food quality and fast service. The set meal includes refillable miso soup, japanese rice, shredded letuce, and water melon. We are so full after all the fruit refill.
Great value for money. Still ranks as the best Katsu in Manila.
