Fika Swedish Cafe & Bistro

Fika Swedish Cafe & Bistro – Beach Road, Singapore.

Another Friday night’s outing with friends after working hours. I went down to get a table at The Ramen Stall at North Bridge Road while waiting the other three friends to join me. As the queue was quite long before us, we decided to walk down the road to check out other restaurants and cafe.

Then, our Muslim friend suggested to go to Fika Swedish Cafe & Bistro because it is Halal. It was quite a distant from our first location and we just walked all the way while checking out other shops around the road.
We ordered our own individual meal and we added the Cold Meat Platter named SMÖRGÅSBORD in Swedish. The cold items include the pickled herring, smoked salmon, turkey ham, Skagen with Swedish roe, hard rye crispbread, cheese and a small side salad. And the hot items are meatballs, grilled chicken, Black Angus sirloin served on a bed of mash and asparagus wrapped with bacon.

I ordered the Garlic pasta with meatballs. VITLLÖKSPASTA MED KÖTTBULLAR ELLER GRILLAD KYCKLING in Swedish. I have no idea how to pronounce it and I just copied the name from their website. In short, it is Linguine pasta, garlic, olive oil, parsley, chilli flakes and meatballs.
The spaghetti was cooked al-dente and the garlic and chili flakes make it smells good. It came with five medium sized meatballs. The portion was generous. I completed my meal with the Lingonberry Juice which suggested by my friend to try it.

The spread of good food on the beautiful and happy Friday’s evening. 🙂
It is really a good place to gather with friends and eat and talk. It is a great night spent together.

Breakfast at IKEA

The day after I submitted my blood for the test to renew my work pass, I hopped to the free bus to IKEA at the Tampines One. It was 9.00AM in the morning, and there was no queue at the bus stand. My left hand felt so weak, and I was really hungry for food. Not many eateries in Tampines One are ready to serve the customers.

When I checked out my bill, I found out that Ikea offered free coffee or tea for early birds. All patrons have to pay their bill before 10.00AM to get the free coffee of the day.

I ordered the French toast with baked beans and sausage. It is a simple English breakfast set for that day. As I could not move my left hand that much, I chose to sit near the drink counter to conveniently reach out my next cup of coffee.

Address: 60 Tampines North Drive 2, 528764, Singapore.
