Alba 1836

A modern Italian fine dining restaurant in collaboration with Alessandro Frau of Thailand’s Acqua Restaurant, this place is easy to miss when walking around the often-raucous Duxton Hill. Aside from a large wine selection, there are delicate dishes like seared foie gras with pickled wild mushrooms, Moscato wine reduction, roasted onion marmalade and Maldon salt; scallops carpaccio served with black truffle, raw baby zucchini in olive and lemon juice with a truffle sauce; homemade fresh ravioli agnolotti stuffed with burrata cheese and black truffle with ossobucco ragout; and Maine lobster poached and dressed Sardinian-style with olive oil, lemon juice, marinated red onions, tomatoes and celery.
