Take a Look Inside Dimples Romana’s New Restaurant in Singapore
It's a cozy nook along Teck Lim Road
Dimples Romana is an entrepreneur at heart. She has invested in real estate, and now she ventures into the international food scene with the recently opened Alegria Singapura, which serves “contemporary non-traditional Latin cuisine.”
"The past week has been a blast as our Team Alegria in Singapore has been experienced and enjoyed by locals and our fellow Filipinos—the food, the ambiance, the drinks," she writes on Instagram. "A BIG THANK you to everyone who keeps sending us and tagging us their photos, videos of their food and dining experience. You guys are the best!"
Located along Teck Lim Road, the space has a primarily industrial feel accentuated by woven bar stools.
The highlight of the dining area is the mural, which is seemingly a nod to the vibrant street life in the locale. It was created by artist Kookoo Ramos in collaboration with SPAZ.
The mural, in fact, is what connects Alegria Singapura to its sister branches. Kookoo has just finished one in Café Alegria in Forbestown BGC, which will be opening in May 2021.
While colors of the interiors are still Mexican-inspired, the space has a more Filipino vibe to it, due to the use of rattan.
Alfonso, Cavite Mayor Randy Salamat, who is also one of Dimple’s venture partners for the Singapore branch, shares on Instagram that a Tagaytay branch is also in the works called Hacienda Alegria. It will be located beside Breakfast by Antonio’s.
Designed by PDP Architects, the style also has Latin American influences, although colors are muted compared to other branches. There is also the predominant use of wood as if to match with the restaurant’s location. One corner has a display of candles, flowers, and skulls—a homage to Dia de los Muertos. There's currently no date yet on when this spot is set to open its doors.
