City Weekend Beijing: “Second Bite: Alba Cafe” review

Though Alba café’s menu has had its ups and downs, the café itself has remained the same: the same cozy décor, same great prices and the same Bob Marley tracks playing on the speakers above. This winter the Alba team slipped in a few extra pages to their menu and with the opening of their rooftop terrace for the summer,  it’s a perfect time to check it out.

So what’s the new menu all about? The quick answer: pizzas and sandwiches. The pizza selection includes a chicken pesto pizza for RMB48, a medium sized pizza with creamy pesto sauce, chicken breast, feta cheese and sprigs of fresh basil.  Other pizzas include Parma ham, shrimp and if you’re feeling especially daring – a sweet potato and blue cheese pizza (all for RMB48).

There are lots of new sandwiches as well. They are all served on wooden panels and come with a side of fries – which means that for only RMB30 you can stuff yourself pretty successfully. The open face breakfast sandwich (RMB30) is especially filling, with eggs benedict on one slice of the bagel and an avocado arugula salad on the other. Read the whole review here.
