Albar is committed to finding ingredients locally, and to using as many organic and spray-free components as possible in its dishes.
The menu gives a clue to this, with notes telling you , for example, that their potatoes are Patatas ecologicas de nuestros vecinos Ethigal y Juan Antonio de El Pilar. The potatoes grown organically by our neighbours come from a field just 30 metres from the restaurant. No food miles here!
Similarly with most of our ingredients, supplies come from local providers. Fresh fish and seafood come straight from Almeria port, and both olive oil and fresh goat come from Lubrin, just few km away. Chicken and rabbit are raised for us nearby, free-range and organic.
Through these practices, Albar sees itself as an integral part of the local economy. It is a reliable outlet, giving a steady boost to nearby providers of high-quality produce. In the summer of 2014 this aspect of Albar’s involvement in the community was recognised when, in a programme highlighting the use of local produce, the Spanish radio station Cadena Ser broadcast live from the restaurant.
