I AM Cafe @ Haji Lane, Where Charm Meets Food
I love Haji lane. This pre-war shophouses have their charm with a unique mix of tenants in the alley. One of them is I AM cafe. Located at the junction of North Bridge Road and Haji Lane, this cafe is inspired by the city of Amsterdam (as you can see from the bike). Owned by 3 Muslim friends, all preparation and ingredients are done in accordance to the Islamic way of guidance.
This open space cafe serves hearty sandwiches, burgers, pastas, pizzas and fish and chips. We had the Fish Burger ($13.90) which was nothing fantastic – battered dory topped with lettuce, sliced gherkins, melted cheese and tartar sauce. But their Charcoal-grilled Juicy Beef Burger ($14.90) which comes with charcoal-grilled beef patty topped with pineapple, onions and melted cheese, is not bad. The patties are all painstakingly grilled over a charcoal-fuelled fire, and thus take a little more cooking time. It was juicy with consistent texture. The burgers were too thick and it is impossible to bite one huge mouthful given its height. But the cheese and onion added dimension into the burger. Bright and fresh
Homemade Beef Meatballs Pasta ($14.90) is also a comforting lunch.
To complement the food menu, I AM also have a myriad of drink concoctions which are alcohol-free. Popular ones include Virgin Lychee Mojito and Bushramint. I prefer to go for my cup of coffee. Almost everyone on the net is also raving about their rainbow mille crepe and red velvet cake which is baked by one of the owner’s mother. Too bad I didn’t get to try it this time, but will be back!
