Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Dining at IKEA

To many, IKEA is simply an oversized furniture store that is designed as a maze to entrap innocent customers like us. My parents love IKEA though, because they would take a long time going through each of the display rooms and check out how they use space so efficiently and yet comfortably. For me, I always go to IKEA for one thing and only – food, that is.

A few weekends ago, Bregitt, Rick and I headed over to the IKEA outlet at Queenstown to look at their displays and more importantly, to eat. All of us share this love of their food – from their Sweedish meatballs to their local delights. Not to mention their $1 hot dogs on the ground floor! Everyone can have themselves a very generous helping of mustard, chili sauce or tomate ketchup – all in the goodness of a dollar.

That’s my lunch – poached salmon with black pepper sauce. I am a big fan of boiled baby carrots too! Of course, IKEA food fans like us will never miss out their meat balls – Bregitt got a huge plate of it and we shared the dish among ourselves.

One thing I like about IKEA is their effort to incorporate local dishes into their menu. In Malaysia, breakfast will usually be nasi lemak1. I’m not very sure of the menu in Singapore but I do know that on a few occasions, they do sell stewed beef as lunch and dinner in their cafe.

Dear readers: At what unique places do you enjoy eating?

  1. With roots in Malay culture, its name is a Malay word that literally means ‘rice in cream’. The name is derived from the cooking process whereby rice is soaked in coconut cream and then the mixture steamed. Sometimes knotted screwpine (pandan) leaves are thrown into the rice while steaming to give it more fragrance – Wikipedia
