1. I am…
Let’s be real, no slice of cake is ever too big. I am…’s supersize dish is Rainbow Cake ($8.90), which is layered nicely with generous amounts of icing separating the 7 different colours. To give you a gauge of the size of the slice, it basically fits the entire rectangular plate that’s about the length of my forearm. There is also Red Velvet Cake ($8.90), which is equally huge. The café doesn’t just serve cakes, café food such as Boss Burger ($19.70), Fish ‘N’ Chips ($15.90) and Hawaiian Five O Pizza ($12.90) are also available. A bonus would be this café’s halal-certified status given that it is pretty rare to find halal cafes in Singapore.
