Together with my foodie friends from #WeLoveToEatPH, I attended a Bloggers Night held here and discovered the ways in which Alegria can be our happy place.

Here’s how:

One: It’s within easy reach.

Located in the bustling and cosmopolitan Bonifacio Global City, Alegria is easily accessible to office workers and residents of Taguig and Makati. Here, you can meet up with friends for a meal or a drink or two as you while away the worst of the rush hour.

Two: It has a vibrant and colorful vibe that will lift your spirits.

The countries that make up Latin America are characterized by a dynamic culture influenced by customs of indigenous people, the European colonizers as well as those of African and Asian countries that came into contact with Latin America.

This resulted to a culture marked with liveliness and color, which mark Alegria’s premises, from the colorful murals on the walls to the lively beat of the music played in the background.

Here, you and your friends can groove to the festive Latin beat as you dine and shake off the day’s worries.

Three: It highlights the fresh and exotic flavors that make Latin cuisine so unique.

The same vibrancy, color and artistry also characterize Alegria’s dishes which we were able to sample, which included:

Pescado (Php165). Fish, pasilla relish, with a smoky flavor from charred pineapple and corn, and red cabbage to be wrapped tortilla frijol.

Along with the delicious food, we also enjoyed Alegria’s drinks such as:
