The chain has released an image of The Alley’s logo, a deer blessed with large antlers, superimposed over Marina Bay Sands, backed by an impossibly starry night sky. “Coming soon to Singapore” is also seen in small print.

 “A fascinating city of glorious cultural diversity, where differences are celebrated. The Alley is proud to be coming to Singapore!” reads the caption, which is followed by a handful of hashtags.

The chain prides itself on its Deerioca tapioca pearls, which are made “from scratch”, according to its website. The Alley believes this “creates better texture and aroma for the tapioca”.
