Alba Terrace - Edition Hotel
Alright, I’m gonna get this out of the way first, because it’s been on my mind for two days straight now.
Life changing. I’m not saying this because it was cool to look at and reminded me of my 90s emo punk band phase, I’m saying it because it was the best calamari I’ve ever tasted. Hands down. Apparently they use ink in the batter or something to make it black? I dunno, I don’t care, all I know is I understand completely why it’s one of their signature dishes.
In addition to that, we had a burrata salad, the lamb shoulder, some breads, sweet potato fries, and some meatballs. My coworker and I both walked out of there agreeing that nothing we had was disappointing, but that the calamari was the highlight of the night.
Drinks are pretty fairly priced and so was the food.
All told, it’s a bit of a drive for me from Al Raha area, but since I’ve spent the last two nights dreaming about the calamari, I know for sure I’ll be back soon!
