It seems like you’ll never run out of new places to try in Cebu these days. This time, we landed on this perfect place to hang out with friends and find an affordable array of food that’s timely for your kwentuhan session. Alburs Pizza Burger Grill offers delicious kinds of comfort food for your entire group of friends to enjoy. They have pizza, burgers, pasta, and other main courses that will surely satiate your inner foodie. We tried some of their best sellers, which you can see below:
Alburs Pizza Burger Grill: Appetizers
Top to Bottom: Vietnamese Spring Roll (Php 150), Fresh Spring Roll (Php 60), Prawn Crackling Tempura (Php 180)
Recommended: The Vietnamese Roll is my favorite, especially when dipped with its own special sauce. The tempura’s sauce has the right kind of consistency, so I’d say it was quite flavorful as well.
Alburs Pizza Burger Grill: Pizza
Recommended: Oh, the never-ending choices! I had a lot of favorites, but the Jandrick Pizza, which name was derived from one of the partners’ name, really topped it. Next is the Truffle Pizza, which is Chef Albor’s personal favorite, that tastes just as equally good especially when sprinkled with the right amount of hot sauce. Basically, I love everything cheesy, and these two just incorporated cheese into its ingredient without overdoing it.
The 4Season Pizza is Albur’s bestseller, though, and really worth trying! This pizza boasts of its incredible flavor selections – tomatoes, mushroom, grilled chicken, and pepperoni.
Alburs Pizza Burger Grill: Burgers & Sandwiches
Clockwise, Left to Right: Southside Burger (Php 160), Truffle Burger (Php 190), Heart Stopper (Php 240)
Recommended: Who could ever resist such a mouth-watering combination of burger buns and steak + fries? The Heart Stopper has an additional twist, but I definitely loved how thick the Truffle Burger’s meat is and just how flavorful it gets with its white cream.
Their burgers have fries on the side and can be bought at such an affordable price.
Alburs Pizza Burger Grill: Noodles & Pasta
Top to Bottom: Seafood Pho (Php 160), Linguine Vongole (Php 190)
If you want to try something new for a change, their menu also consists of seafood pasta and noodles. Just a little note on the Linguine Vongole, though – there’s a hint of liquor in there, but that just adds a little bit of oomph to its taste.
Alburs Pizza Burger Grill: Main Courses
Of course, if you’re up to getting a well-deserved dinner, then you have to try their main courses. The adobo rice that comes with the Confit Kawali stands out as it is perfectly laden with flavorful seasonings that will tingle your taste buds.
Recommended: As much as I love the Confit Kawali, I’d definitely go for beef! Their US Striploin Beef is tender and juicy, and you’ll love its curry, too. It’s a little bit on the higher-priced side (yet compared to other restaurants, this meal could easily range two to three times pricier), but given how every bite was just extremely satisfying, you’ll have no regrets.
As I’d said, this place is perfect for hangouts or exclusive parties with your friends. An ice cold beer is definitely much welcomed after a tiring or stressed day out. The place is located in the heart of the city, yet you’ll find that it’s also far away from its bustling noise. It sits in a secluded area and just at a walking distance away from Sarrosa Hotel in Mabolo, Cebu City.
They have bean bags if you want to bask around under the golden sun during sundown, as the restaurant usually opens at around 3PM. It is an open-space area except for the counter where you can have your orders and the private function room beside it that’s air-conditioned.
Another seating options are their long tables for large groups wherein its tabletops were crafted by various artists, as well as square tables with long, cushioned seats. With its al fresco setup, you’ll definitely love staying here even longer.
We stayed at their function room where a huge mural painting of popular countries’ destinations fills the entire area of a wall. It has sliding glass doors and comfortable boxed seats in addition to the tables as its facilities.
Alburs is just the right place to unwind and get together with friends. I totally wouldn’t mind lounging around here all day – so long as it does not rain!
