We decided to venture to IKEA in order to find some new kitchen knives. it was about noon time so we thought we would try their “restaurant”. It was packed! IKEA promotes this by stating “the menu includes kid’s meals, organic and vegetarian options, healthy choices and Swedish classics.” With that being said the food should be good right? W-E-L-L-L-L-L. . . .
I decided I would try their salmon burger. I am trying to eat more fish. The description is ” reinvent the traditional burger, taking culinary inspiration from a current favorite, the pulled pork burger, and giving it an extra Swedish twist for the PULLED SALMON BURGER”. There was the burger, a little bit of lettuce (and when I say a little bit I mean it! The menu says cabbage but I beg to differ.), BBQ spices, and a couple of pickle slices ( I found 1). For $4.99 it was okay. I thought the burger was a bit dry and bland, there was no sauce, and I would rather have it flame broiled on a grill.
I also decided that I needed a little dessert at the end so I purchased 2 of the coconut truffles for $.49 each. Made with oats, cocoa powder and rolled in coconut they were so-so. I would have liked to have more chocolate. Who wouldn’t?
I guess for a for a cheap date this would be the place to go or if you had a large family because it is affordable. Just be ware that they change for every add-on. So if you go you not only order you main dish than the soup, salad, crackers, beverage and treats are all going to the bottom line. Give it a go and let me know what you think! By the way I did not find the knives I was looking for . . . . . .
