Am I Addicted is a 6,000 sqft pottery studio that houses a Korean vegetarian cafe. From healthy nibbles to nutrition-packed mains, Am I Addicted’s vegetarian menu is made delicious with signature Korean-western fusion cuisine that adds unique, punchy flavours to plant-based dishes. The cafe menu consists of refreshing drinks, raw and cooked vegan plates, and cafe staples made guilt-free with alternative vegan ingredients — all original recipes by AIA’s in-house chef that promises not to compromise taste while keeping everything nutritious.

Be sure to check out Chung (청), the signature beverage lineup 100% handmade by the kitchen team. Chung is a kind of preserved marmalade made with only two ingredients: fresh fruits and sugar. It can be served in many ways, such as in drinks like lemonades or mixed together with milk, as well as toppings for bread and desserts to add a bright, fruity taste.
