And their tuesdays meatballs promotion26 November, 2010 by Yan
When you see a snaking queue for food in Singapore, chances are it has either to be really good or very well worth its price. Since this year’s national day, Ikea Singapore has been offering a promotion on their bistro. Does a price reduction on their all-time favorite meatballs every Tuesday sound attractive enough? Because it has to be, otherwise we wouldn’t be facing the queue in this picture.
Unfortunately for me, I was itching for some meatballs on a Tuesday and the only solution was to make a visit to Ikea for some. Being very uninformed, I got a shock when I saw the half hour queue in front of me. But regardless, I shall have my Swedish food and meatball fix.
If you think that is the end of the road, there are actually more problems the unprepared would have to meet with to get their meatball fix. The next primary concern would be to find a seat to actually start enjoy your food. Usually, it is not a problem if there is a friend to guard seats but when soloing, one doesn’t have much of a choice.
Regardless of all the technical issues and frustrations, all it takes to enjoy a plate of meatballs is to clear away the foul tasting mood. Because if anything, Ikea bistro’s meatballs are a comfort food for lots of people. (Sure the meatballs are of Swedish origin, but since Ikea opened its doors in Singapore 25 years ago, these meatballs have rooted itself as a comfort food for many).
There you have it. Ikea bistro can be a no frills diner to enjoy Swedish food, or hell depending on how you look at it. If you are dying for the 10pcs meatballs set offered by Ikea, you can visit Ikea bistro on Tuesday to enjoy discounted prices. For those who just want to enjoy their meatballs without the hassle, please refrain from visiting Ikea bistro on Tuesdays and the usual weekends.
