Tita Ruby's Birthday at Alba's Westgate

Tita Ruby Henson is the friend of PD but she is also my friend now.  Their friendship goes way back since their riding days.  I remember her when I was a little girl, I used to tag along at the riding school near the perimeter of North Forbes.

She invited PD and I for lunch at Alba's, Westgate.  We all love lechon!!!  That is why she chose that place.


The cochinillo's skin was very thin and crisp and I got my favorite rib part!  They used a piglet, I could tell, the ribs were just a bit thicker than a toothpick!

The other food at Alba's....




Baked Fish


Buttered Vegetables

Assorted Cold Cuts and Chorizo

Pollo Pate, Espinacas, Tomato, ajo, aceiti de oliva

Fried Fish cutlets, mushrooms in garlic, chicken meatballs in gravy

Spanish Sardines


Marshmallow Dome

I always only get the food I like whenever I eat at a buffet.  I just got the cochinillo, a little paella, lengua and callos.

Some antipasti....

and ... a small slice of Canonigo.

We were all sharing stories and when we looked at our watches .... it was already 4:00 p.m.!!!  Time really flies so fast when you are having a good time.

Thanks and Happy Birthday, Tita Ruby!!!
