IKEA Restaurant, Ikea

When I was young, my parents would bring my brother and I to Ikea (located at 1 Utama at then) almost every weekend. We'd run around the exhibition hall, "test" their sofas and bed durability (you know what I mean), go to their kid's play area, dine in in their restaurant , have ice-cream and curry puff for tea and buy some frozen meatballs to satisfy our meatball cravings at home. I practically grew up in Ikea. But as I grow up, the frequency of me visiting IKEA gradually decrease.

Guan Ren and I were planning a trip to KL on one of the holiday. Unfortunately, it was raining cats and dogs on that particular morning. We didn't want to call off our outing so we improvised it. We decided to pay a visit to IKEA. I was literally jumping out of joy after hearing that.

 RM1.50 for a free flow of soft drink, RM2 for free flow of coffee and RM3 for cuppucino
IKEA restaurant is a cafeteria-style restaurant, where you'd have to line up , get yourself a tray & trolley, grab your drink and order and the "kitchen" area where they'll prepare your order. The lines were long, despite being a weekdays due to the highly affordable price.
Daily specials!
IKEA also serves ready-made sandwich where you could choose to eat em' cold or hot by heating it up in the microwave.

Fresh pastries & Muffin! You can heat the pastries up too after making your purchase using the microwave in the dining area

Their Hot Food Menu!
15 pcs Meat Balls - RM14
Do not be deceived by the size of the meatball. The meatballs were actually really filling! Soft and tender, the meatball drenched in gravy gives a really juicy outcome. The Lingoberry Sauce (a sauce siilar to strawberry jam, but less sweet) compliments the meatball & gravy well, balancing the salty and savoury flavour. 
Mushroom Soup - RM3
Each Mouth full packed with lots of flavour. The consistency was just alright. I never had such a decent mushroom soup for this price.

Dessert Time! We went to the Ikea snack kiosk located at the exit of their warehouse and ordered an ice-cream and curry puff

The ice-cream machine! To cater their ever-increasing customer, IKEA introduced this token-operated ice-cream machine to enhance efficiency

How do you operate it?
1. Enter token you got from cashier
2. Place Cone on holder
3. Press the button
4. Wait a moment...
Soft and fluffy ice-cream! 
I prefer IKEA's ice-cream over MCD ice-cream. Why? No Tax and the cone IKEA uses is more crispy and crunchy
Curry Puff- RM1
Warm in the inside, crispy in the outside. The size and fillings has decreased over year but nevertheless, for the price we pay I still find it pretty decent.
Creme Caramel - RM1

We loved IKEA food so much we even came back for dinner
Fish & Chips- RM10.90
We shared this as the portion is big enough for two. Two pieces of battered fish on a bed of fries. Guan Ren said he prefers IKEA's fish & chips over Tony Roma's! The fish was well fried, and tasted good on its own. 
Thank you so much for your effort to drive there.! It was a really good day =)
