Ikea Swedish Meatballs, Gravad Lax and Soft Toys!

I do enjoy going to Ikea for a little outing, have some food and a wonder around the vast store, perhaps purchasing a candle holder or something on the way..

I do like their furniture but I find it rather over-priced and tend to go there to get ideas rather than buy stuff, then I’ll go and find what I like at a local shop.

I really love the food though, especially the great Swedish Meatballs!

Ikea Meatballs

I’ve never been anywhere where they’ve managed to shove quite so many chips in a little pot either..

Lovely lovely meaty balls of loveliness!

Lovely Meatballs

The gravy is just perfect, and the slightly hard boiled potatoes (I usually mash them up with the gravy and a little salt and pepper, heavenly!)

Ikea Gravad Lax

The Ikea Gravad Lax is very good aswell with the nice tangy sauce, my Mom said she made it once but it took about 3 days, so I don’t think I’ll bother..

If you’re interested though, there’s a BBC Recipe for Gravad Lax here.

Of course the plates get licked clean πŸ™‚

After that I headed into the store to educate the next generation of children via the medium of soft-toy art.

I call this beautiful peice:

I’m good eh?

    My wife loves the food there and last week we went there 3 times just for the food but we ended up buying something else too.

    About the prices, its not that bad and we found them quite resonable considering the quality; In fact they were the cheapest around.

    I know this someone that can make the original kottbullar (swedish meatball) and it is nothing like what Ikea is serving. Apparently he says the meatball needs half portion of minced beef mixed together with half portion of minced pork, and added on with some mashed potatoes (can be replaced with oatmeal).

    I love it everytime when he invites me over for the kottbullar. It is always being served with tad bit of lingonberry jam. Sometimes he would make some very traditional swedish mashed potatoes that goes splendid with it too.

    Slurrp!

    Adam: The price for smaller items is ok, but larger items I find rather expensive, especially soft furnishing. Like there is a sofa there I liked, it was RM5600 I got one outside, which is somewhat nicer and larger for RM1800.

    spiller: Secret guest man..

    Dana: That sounds heavenly!

    You know, that display would be in the children’s section…

  14. Kuzco February 8, 2006 at 4:51 am #

    The children would be too innocent to notice anything wrong with the teddies..

    Lungiman: Teddy’s get all the fun eh?

    Laynie: Well it wasn’t it was near the restaurant πŸ˜‰ Plus kids wouldn’t know what it was supposed to be, plus I put them back to normal after, plus kids have to learn about sex some day anyway right?

    dude, try the one in KLCC food court. on the right as you walk in. taste similar. in my humble tastebuds opinion(imhto) if ikea’s is 10/10, then this would be 8/10.
