Out on the town in Old Porvoo on Sept.7, 2013, we walked down Church Street intending to have dinner at El Alba. Based on reviews in tripadvisor, it sounded like a restaurant for us. The two friends with me, both long-time Porvoo residents, had eaten at El Alba before, the last time about a year ago, and raved about the Spanish food to me, a visitor from Toronto.
We stopped just outside to have a look at the evening's menu and my friends were taken aback by the listed prices of the entrees (which all ranged between 25 to 35 Euros). They exclaimed surprise at the substantial increase in prices from the time of their last visit.
Instead of going in, they told me that there were a number of other excellent restaurants in the city with amazingly good food and more reasonable prices. We ended up going to Khukuri, a nearby Nepalese place (see my recent tripadvisor review)
