My $1 breakfast


Is Ikea a furniture store with a nice cafe corner or a cafe with a nice furniture corner?  In the mornings, Ikea at Alexandra Road, which is a convenient location in Singapore, certainly looks like the latter. Almost all their patrons are here for breakfast. And with prices like this, it is easy to see why.


I had the loh mai kai (glutinous rice with chicken) for breakfast. It was not a large portion but enough as a simple meal. It was flavourful and the chunks of chicken inside were cooked just nice and not overdone as such dishes tend to be. I had complimentary coffee by virtue of my Ikea membership (which is quite easily acquired). Other than lor mai kai there are some other items available from $1 to $5. Scrambled eggs and pancake for $1.50 also looks good.

Airconditioned comfort, pleasant decor and reasonably priced food and free coffee. It is no wonder that Ikea seems more like a dining destination than a furniture store at certain hours.
