1 ‘fess up now—we’ve all been guilty of making a trip down to IKEA for their food instead of the furniture at least once. The popular Swedish furniture store has had an impressive variety of menu offerings thus far; there was the charcoal hotdog, lobster spaghetti, and more than I can remember.

If you’re looking for something substantial, they’ve launched 8 Treasures Lotus Leaf Rice (S$8), which comes pre-steamed at IKEA’s restaurant outlets. Every bamboo-wrapped rice comes stuffed with juicy lup cheong, sliced shiitake mushrooms, fragrant chestnuts, and a whole salted egg yolk. If you’re a fan of lor mai gai, this one is the one to dig into.
