Food Trip at IKEA Alexandra

IKEA is not only known for affordable stuff and easy to assemble furniture. It is also famous because of the Swedish Meatballs so it is also on my list to taste this popular meatball.



I was disappointed when the Swedish meatballs were not available in IKEA Tachikawa so I was really looking forward to our Singapore trip. 



So for our third night, we went to IKEA Alexandra to eat our dinner. At the first floor, we only saw few tables and counter. I immediately checked the menu and I was sad because I only see, chicken wings, ice cream and hotdog, hmmm same fate in Japan. I was excited to eat swedish meatballs then wala pala. So we just ate chicken wings, hotdog sandwiches and ice cream. 



Again, self-service for the drinks and condiments. I was surprised when the cashier gave me IKEA tokens, so I need to use this for my ice cream pala. We did not experience this in Japan. We just followed the instructions.



When we went to the second floor, we saw the restaurant and nandun pala ang heavy meals so I told my husband that we will go back again. So before we went to the airport, we had late lunch at IKEA Alexandra.

It was not easy to find a vacant table and the lines were very long so patience is a virtue. Pero deadma na because I really want to taste the meatballs. We ordered Swedish Meatballs, Salmon, Blueberry Cheesecake, Almond Cake and drinks. I can’t remember the exact price of each meal but the bill is less than SGD30. 



Finally, natikman ko na rin swedish meatballs, well the taste is just ok for me. It is good naman but my favorite is the salmon + hollandaise sauce. This dish made me remembered my summer in Norway where salmon is just an ordinary dish. 



The Blueberry Cheesecake is good too. I think the Almond Cake is really yummy because it was gone in 60 seconds. We were surprised when my son finished everything and di man lang kami nakatikim. We wanted to order again pero ang haba talaga ng pila.




Well, I really hope that we will have IKEA Philippines soon.

  2. We have IKEA here but never get a chance to visit. The meatballs looks really good and the cheesecake is scrumptious looking. I think its about time to check out our IKEA here, look for great furniture and hopefully they have meatballs.:)

  3. The kids too love the meatballs at IKEa. The chicken wing is suppose to be good too but the kids are not into it. I too prefer the salmon when we dine there.
