This is the second post in the Around the World Birthday Extravaganza Series. Because there will be many, many posts in this series, I will list all other posts from this series at the bottom of the post.
We were in somewhat of a pickle.
We had emailed our hotel/B&B far in advance, thinking we had lined up all of our dinner reservations in Alba. It wasn’t until we arrived that we found out there had been a slight misunderstanding. Our hosts at the B&B had emailed restaurants requesting reservations, but nothing had been confirmed.
It turns out we had zero dinner reservations in hand.
After a flurry of phone calls, we were able to secure reservations at two of the restaurants we had originally planned on visiting. Unfortunately, a third one was completely booked solid during our visit.
“They do not take reservations, and you have to line up, but the food is very good. There are hardly any restaurants in this area that serve food this way anymore. There is no menu. You just show up, and they feed you what they are cooking that day.”
“It is very, very popular with the locals.”
