Ikea Restaurant

This should be a place that many of us singaporeans are familiar with, because i guess we all have bought some stuffs from ikea for our home, and when you are there, you won't miss this cafe or restaurant. ikea members have got free drinks and discounted meals there too. have been there numerous times, it's always very crowded during lunch time. now that they open another branch at tampines which has a much bigger sitting capacity, hopefully the queue will move faster at peak hours
Swedish meatballs, my favourite dish there. the meatballs aren't fantastic but it taste good with the sauce and the jam, i always ask for extra sauce, it's never enough for the potato as well
Poached salmon, served with broccoli and potato
Egg fried rice with roast chicken, taste like chicken rice, one of the local dish they serve
The princess cake and the punch cake. punch cake taste good, i think there;s liquor in it.
The daim cake, you will like this if you like sweet stuffs. have you tried the daim candy that they sell at the ikea shop? it taste similar with butterscotch and chocolate. couldn't remember the name for the other 2 dessert. dun really think they are nice though

The meatballs is my favourite, but i do hear from people that the standard has dropped, it's not as nice as it was before. any one has got any views about this?

They also serve local specialities like chicken curry with rice, the curry is quite good i must say. of course homemade one by my mum is the best, but if you compare with the chicken curry that you find outside, it's one of the better ones.

haha .. ok .. yes .. cruz thinks that the meatballs standard has dropped and art who tried the meatballs for the first time feels that there are many other nicer meatballs.

Hey jane... i decided to post food on a different blog cos i realise that i have too many food items on my main blog and i was inspired by some food blogs, so started the food one .. i'll have constant links from my main blog to this one when there's food postings. Glad to see your comment here!! .. :)

Yes, ikea's meatball - my fave. But I do feel that the standard has dropped, can't pinpoint exactly what is different but it sure dun taste the same.
