Eating Out: Ikea


Category : ,

Last weekend on a trip to Ikea with Iron Chef Katie we needed food before we commenced shopping. Lovely Katie shouted me to some Swedish meatballs. It was the first time for both of us. We had heard such good things about them so we decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about.

We got the smaller serving, about 17 meatballs, with chips and the cranberry sauce/jam. I'm not sure why they serve it with cranberry jam (or lingonberry preserves as suggested by Kelly - thanks!), but it works really well with the gravy and the meatballs.
I thought they were rather nice! So cheap and filling. I would definitely have them again. They might not look like the most exciting things to eat but sometimes you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Anyways, we both had success shopping, I bought a bookshelf which was rather heavy, and Katie got some pretty picture frames. Man I love Ikea!

lol did you take a picture when I went to get the drinks =P

Are you sure that's cranberry? Thought that it's lingonberry preserves....

(hello from the US, I love your blog & I'm envious of your restaurant choices--reading your reviews always makes me hungry and often sends me into my own kitchen to try to replicate what you've had!!)

Hi Kelly!
It probably is lingonberries! I'll amend the post.. I had no idea and wasn't in the mood for looking it up! thanks though!

And thank you for your lovely comment! I'm glad to hear such positive things, it just helps me to realize there are actually people reading and enjoying my blog!
