Authentic Chinese Food with Character!
14/06/15Another very new café AH MEI is located on Jl Dewi Sri (that runs from Sunset Rd down to Jl Patih Jelantik .........which has become a very busy business/beauty/small hotels/yoga/vet/ some retail and eating road!
AH MEI (means Pretty Lady) is a traditional Chinese café with a contemporary feel. An original warehouse was given a facelift by some talented business people from Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.
Step into a Chinese world of Singapore hawker food to South East Asian specialities.
Set within this converted building on the next level, is a traditional Chinese small house more than 100 years old I am told...This area hasn’t as yet opened for business but soon... with two fabulous meeting/banquet rooms with air-con. There are plenty of marble top tables, blue and white ceramics, to the piece de resistance - the entire back wall features an open showcase divided into small sections to house a unique display of miniature ceramic plates! These surely are serious collectors pieces....
I think many people would certainly enjoy visiting AH MEI to view another interpretation of interesting architecture for space. Birdcages, lighting and ceramics are natural additions. Do try some of the tasty food, naturally the menu features the famous Singaporean dish of chicken and rice. However, if it’s only a short stop on your day out, enjoy a cup of artisan coffee or tea, with a piece of toast spread with padan jam plus a line of salted butter! (Must be good as there are jars of jam on sale at the front desk)
They are obviously doing well, supported already by many Chinese clients, as the saying goes, where the locals eat is where you should eat! There are several cafes already set up in Indonesia (their first for Bali) Singapore and Perth, more are no doubt planned....
