If you're looking for good food, at cheap prices, it's really hard to beat Ikea. Most of the people that visit this mammoth furniture store, don't pay much attention to the restaurant or snack bar. This is a huge mistake. I enjoy the food here so much that I often come to the store just to eat.
The swedish meatballs here are fantastic and very reasonably priced. I could easily eat 30 meatballs in one sitting....maybe more. The last time I visited though, I wasn't that hungry so I just ordered 2 kids meals ($1.99 each). The kids meals come with 5 meatballs, french fries and a drink. I've only been asked one time if I was ordering the kids meals for myself, the sign says 12 and under. I panicked and said "No, my wife has the kids at the table."
After I finished my meatballs, I headed downstairs to the snack bar. I got two hot dogs ($0.50 each). The only two condiments they have are kethup and mustard. I think mustard only is just fine. The hot dogs are delicious. I think they're better than Wienerschnitzel.
