Went to the IKEA Restaurant & Cafe at Alexandra. I like the concept (similar to army style canteen), self service and it does speed up the process. You take a tray, if u need to get 2 or more trays, use their tray trolley! A great idea, they did not have it last time. Did not take a picture of it. After taking and trolley and/or tray, you follow the queue and choose the items from the freezers and order the hot dishes from the staff behind the counters. Then you go to the cashier and pay.
What to order? Well the Swedish Meatball!
Swedish Meatball 10pieces $6.50
The Swedish Meatball, I believe it is made up of minced beef and pork. It was cooked to perfection. Not hard, soft on the inside. It is served with boiled potatoes and cream sauce. *thumbs up* No wonder Swedish Meatball is so famous.
Chicken Wings 2pieces $2.80
The Chicken Wings was abit overcooked. But after biting through the skin, the meat is still tender and tasty!
The Swedish Meatballs alone would be worth a trip down to IKEA anyday!

I remember eating the Claypot Laksa at Alexandar Village Food Centre quite some years back. Since today I was around the area, I decided to have it for dinner. But sadly the Food Centre was under going renovation. As a result, I decided to check out Queenstown Shopping Centre. Inside I notice this banner saying The Original Katong Laksa. Seeing no where else to eat and seeing several people eating, I decided to give this a try.
This cost $3.00 and its such a small bowl. The ingredients inside were so little too. Notice the prawn? Its actually only 1 piece. They just cut it into half that is why it looks like 2 pieces. The laksa gravy taste seems as if too much coconut has been added. Nothing fantastic about it. The chilli at the side is not too bad. For $3.00, I felt that more ingredients and noodles could have been added.
The one at Yishun Blk928 is taste so much nicer and even at $2.50 it is more filling.
I was not full after the meal, in the end I went to Ikea 5 minutes away for another round of dinner.(check out the next post)
