ALBA Akihabara: Crafting Kanazawa’s Culinary Legacy Since 1971

ALBA Akihabara stands as a revered institution with roots tracing back to Kanazawa. Its flagship outlet proudly graces Akihabara, marking the beginning of this curry haven’s journey in 1971 in Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture. Reflecting the distinct taste of Kanazawa Curry, it holds a legacy passed down through generations.


ALBA’s curry roux, a testament to European culinary exploration, is meticulously crafted at the Komatsu factory. With a base grounded in stew, it features abundant onions, vegetables, and beef simmered for over six hours, resulting in a profound flavor profile. Served in stainless steel vessels with rice and curry, accompanied by shredded cabbage, ALBA Curry follows the unique “Kanazawa Curry” style, to be eaten with a pre-split spoon.

Part of the local Kanazawa Curry scene, ALBA Curry is celebrated for its distinct spice blend and profound flavor. The menu offers a curated selection of curries, allowing patrons to choose from a variety of vegetables, meat, and seafood. The allure of ALBA Curry lies in its sumptuous roux, harmonized with a diverse array of toppings.
