Uh, it’s hard to let IKEA get away without being classed as a "chain" even if it does sell mostly furniture. If you like the food there, then maybe it’s just a chain with good food. I’ve long maintained that that is a possibility. Anyway, you don’t have to go to Canada to enjoy IKEA chow. There’s one in Emeryville and soon to be one in San Mateo County I think. I haven’t checked, but I’d be surprised if there isn’t one in San Jose somewhere also (hey Frank!!).
