Anchoring island cabinets into tile floor


People,

Hows the best way to anchor down some cabinets which will be an island into a ceramic tile floor? Tile is on concrete slab. Im thinking , since the base of each cabinet is not even exposed (the floor is about 3-4" above base) that only way is to drill a hole into inside cabinet, at base, toward the tile, then drill into tile, then screw in a long screw. Seems goofy. Ideas welcome.

Maybe you could use construction adhesive.

Screw some 2x4's flat side down to the floor to act as cleats. Then put the cabinets over the cleats then screw through the toe kick into the cleat.
