I need a shirt that says “I ate at IKEA, I’m glad I lived to tell the tale!” Just kidding. Marcela had been wanting to go to IKEA for a while now so I granted her one yearly wish and took her there. As we came up the escalators, just south of us was the IKEA restaurant. Everyone seems to mention their Swedish Meatballs. I decide, “Hey self, get the Swedish Meatballs”.
Marcela goes for the Chicken Fingers and Fries.
The Chef is very daring I must say as the special for the day is Chicken Wings and Fries. Where does this guy come up with this stuff? 2 Cookies for $1=Yes, 2 Garlic Breads for a $1=Yes. Food= well, it tastes like the big bagged items you might find at a Costo or Sam’s Club. The two sides, the Mac n Cheese and Mashed Potatoes were better than the Chicken Tenders or Swedish Meatballs. The Garlic Bread was Garlic Bread, nothing bad just the expected. Unfortunately I had to wash this down with a Pepsi, luckily no pictures were taken of this moment. Marcela liked the Cookie but then again she likes all sweets. And just when you think this post would be over, as I’m waiting to leave IKEA I see their Bistro/Exit Cafe. 1 thing catches my eye at the Exit Cafe, Hot Dogs. 1 thing catches Marcela’s eye, Frozen Yogurt. The deal for the Hot Dog is 2 Hot Dogs with Chips and a Drink for $2.
There’s also some Pizza deal. I’m thinking most employees must eat here for lunch with those prices (spoken like a former retail slave). The Hot Dogs are pretty good and I never even try the Chips although I do take them home. Even the fountain Pepsi wasn’t too bad or maybe that’s because I was thirsty after walking around their 293,000-square foot store. Plus Marcela liked her Yogurt, and we got 2 new bookshelves. All in a day’s work, now about that t-shirt….
