Ikea Shanghai | A Poor Man’s Brunch

Brunch in the Shanghai IkeaIt’s been some time since I added a review of a restaurant despite the nice category Shanghai Restaurants.

Last weekend I got inspired again though as we went to Ikea, around 10:30 on a Saturday. I visited this place already a couple of months ago to see what is was like. It was like I expected, too full of shoppers, a lot of pushing as the aisles were cluttered and yes, some good deals. That day we ended for the first time in the Ikea restaurant. Food was good but too many people thought the same so it was like a constant chair dance.

Arriving there early makes all the above inconveniences go away. It’s quiet, there is no waiting at the counter, the coffee machines are there for you alone, (they have three) and the prices are so low.Drink limitless coffee in Ikea

  • A plate of salmon with the appropriate slice of lemon - 18 Rmb
  • A juicy shrimp sandwich with mayo & egg - 10 Rmb
  • Apple crunch with real apple - 9 Rmb
  • Coffee - Unlimited - 6 Rmb
  • It’s easy to fork out 200 Kuai for a buffet brunch at one of the top hotels. This place is the real deal though. Just make sure you are of there around 11:45 as the crowds start to close in you.
