Ikea in Adelaide

I love Ikea, cheap food, pretty furniture’s and their funky soft toys! The geeest that got me there was their advert for the big breakfast! It’s crazy cheap, and i think they should sent the person who is in charge with pricing into the psychiatric ward!

The Ikea in Adelaide looks awefully like the one in Malaysia (without The curve and Ikano by its sides). I took the J1 bus from Grenfell Street, the same bus that goes to the airport. I do wonder at times about Ikea’s main business, food or furnitures. It seems like they are concentrating more towards the food part here in Adelaide. Anyways, the ditto part of Ikea begun as i walked in.

Look, the same escalator up to the show rooms and the cafeteria!

Same look and positioning to the dining area

Ze toilet!

This is the intersection between the showroom, cafeteria and the stairs down to where we grab our items (store house)

Drinks station

So yeah, looks pretty darn the same eh? Well, i thought this was a coincidental thing, but NO! My Italian friend told me that the Ikea in Italy looks the same too!!! Woot Woot! Ikea is running out of ideas eh? At least for once i thought I was home again! Could have just bump into my car and drive around again, instead, reality hit me hard, the closest thing on wheels was the bus for me!

There, look at the low prices!

Smiley Australian chefs looking at some sweedish touch, whats a sweedish touch? hehehe…Tell me Andy!


The only thing thats missing up there is the chef’s special nasi lemak and rojak bumbuu… hehehe.

I ordered the big breakfast, at AUD$3.50. Can never find a full meal at this price! The big breakfast was ermmm, big? Doesnt taste like Ikea, taste more like sausages and eggs + some bread.

Ikea is fun, it always is! 40% of my room is Ikea, I suppose Ikea feeds are room like our stomachs too!

P.s: The only difference that is big enough for me to notice is: No brown people, it was just a shade of white! No loud screaming aunties feeding their kids too!
