Many of us visit Ikea even when we are not looking for any new furniture or home item. Instead, we visit Ikea for the cafeteria which serves up cheap, affordable, as well as yummy food options for all. While most of us know of Ikea’s ever-popular meatballs, not many of us know that there are actually plenty of food options that Ikea offers!
Today, we explore the 10 Best Ikea Food in Singapore so that your next trip down to Ikea will be filled with delicious food!
1. Swedish meatball with mashed potato and broccoli
Almost every single person who visits Ikea Singapore will know that they are well-known for their Swedish meatballs. This popular dish is served with their signature creamy sauce and traditional lingonberry jam, some broccoli, as well as a side of mashed potato.
This dish comes at an extremely affordable price of just $6.50!
2. Halal Meatballs
This dish by Ikea is only available at the Ikea Halal Food section. In order to have their Muslim customers enjoy the goodness of the meatballs, Ikea made the effort to come up with this Halal recipe. Like the Swedish Meatballs, this dish is served with their signature creamy sauce and traditional lingonberry jam, some broccoli, as well as a side of mashed potato.
Similarly, for vegans out there, Ikea has a new dish since October 2020: Plant ball with mashed potato.
Clearly, Ikea wants as many people as possible to enjoy its meatballs, regardless of dietary restrictions or lifestyles! This dish is affordably priced at $6.50.
3. Black pepper chicken leg
One look at this dish and you know you cannot go wrong. This black pepper chicken leg is very well-marinated and cooked to perfection. It is not too dry and not too salty either! The dish is paired with broccoli as well as mashed potatoes.
This dish may look like it costs over $20, but it comes at a price of only $7.90! So skip that fancy dinner at a restaurant and save some bucks at Ikea!
4. Chicken Wings
Ikea’s chicken wing is another of its popular and in-demand delights. It is one of Ikea’s signature dishes as well! It is delightfully crispy and moist, and after having one, you will definitely reach your hand out for more.
Many of its customers love it so much that they try to replicate their recipe at home. However, at a price of $8.50 for 6 pieces, there is no need to go through that hassle! Just head down to Ikea to curb your cravings.
5. Chocolate Cake with Crunchy Caramel
After devouring your mains, it is time for some desserts. Ikea’s chocolate cake with crunchy caramel is a good dessert option for you to get started.
This cake is also popularly known by customers as the Swedish Cake Daim. The chocolate cake with crunchy caramel combines naturally tasty almond bases with a golden cream and crunchy almond caramel, all deliciously covered in smooth milk chocolate. If you do not like your dessert to be too sweet, you would be glad that customers find that this cake is not overly sweet too!
At just $3.50 per slice, you will not feel like you are spending too much on a dessert!
6. Swedish Apple Cake
Ikea’s Swedish Apple Cake is reminiscent of a good old apple pie. It features a pastry base with a layer of marzipan, apple pieces and a touch of cinnamon. All these are topped with a crumble that includes oats.
With apple slices and oats, this dessert is a perfect way to end a day of sinful eating. You will not feel guilty for indulging in it, with these healthy additions! Furthermore, this cake only costs $2.50! Healthy for your body and save your wallet!
7. Lamb shank with black pepper sauce
This decadent looking dish looks like something out of the menu of a 5-star restaurant. You would be shocked that it will only set you back $17.50. If you are feeling like you want something fancier, this is a great option for you.
The dish features a succulent and juicy lamb shank paired with broccoli and mashed potatoes. The delicious and savoury black pepper sauce that goes along with the lamb shank is a wonderful combination that brings out the flavours of the lamb perfectly.
With this main, you even get a soup to go with it. Definitely worth your money!
8. Salmon fillet with broccoli
This healthy dish sees a generous portion of salmon served with a creamy sauce, some broccoli, as well as two vegetable medallions. Many customers agree that vegetable medallions are the hero of this dish. They are potato-based dishes stuffed with broccoli, leek, onion, as well as cheese. Even if you usually dislike the taste of vegetables, you will love this dish! Besides, this dish only costs you $9.90! Where else can you find a salmon dish that is below $10?
You would also want to know that all of Ikea’s salmon comes from farms that are certified to the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) standards. This is part of Ikea’s efforts with global environmental experts to develop responsible salmon farming standards that are better for the fish and for the environment! So you can rest assured and eat in peace!
9. 4pcs meatball with drink
This one is for the kids out there. Many parents do not want to buy a full set of meatballs for their children because they are afraid of food wastage. Children, on the other hand, prefer to have a plate all by themselves! With this dish, you get the best of both worlds. Ikea created this dish so that your child can enjoy a whole portion of mashed potato, vegetables, and get enough jam on their meatballs! To add on to that, the dish is served on wonderfully coloured plates for your little ones. You can get this dish at $3.80!
10. Pasta with Drink
