Ike’s owner, Singaporean food chef face off for Thai Cafe space

The two bidders who spoke to The Daily both have a history with Stanford. For the five years it operated as a sandwich shop in Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center, Ike’s enjoyed a devout following that mounted a protest in White Plaza when the store was forced to close in spring 2014. Since then, the chain restaurant has opened a grab-and-go store in McMurtry Building offering cold sandwiches, cookies and ice cream.
