Pacifying Bangsar-bAbE with Ikea’s Sweedish Meatballs

I have a confession to make: I’m one of those people who cannot stand shopping because of the crowd. Which is why I do most of my shopping online. It’s fast and convenient, plus I don’t have to deal with the mall crowd.

You know those benches in shopping malls outside the stores? I’m always sitting there waiting for rif or Shum while they take their time shopping! One of the places I can’t stand going to is Ikea. I find the experience tiring, confusing and the place is crowded. I will only ever go to Ikea if rif needs to get something from there. And to pacify me, he would get me a plate of Swedish meatballs (RM8.90 for 10pcs) and a cup of coffee (RM3). The restaurant is always full of people and the queue is super long. Luckily, he’s the one doing the queuing… o_0 The meatballs come with lingonberry sauce, creamy brown sauce and thick cut fries. These savoury treats are bread-y and meaty, with a hint of nutmeg. The tart lingonberry sauce complements them perfectly.

Coffee is refillable and you have a choice of black coffee or Cappuccino. After I’ve eaten my meatballs, I’d be satiated and a lot less miserable, but I still don’t like shopping! =P

    I LOVE going to IKEA… dunno why but I used to dream of my perfect home & how I am going to furnish it with Ikea's furniture… lol!!! I love how they can turn a simple idea into such amazing interiors while utilising limited space. This place is also where I used to bring my wife to look around, talking on how to furnish our home… back then we were still normal friends!

    Anyway, she had made a big sacrifice… she used to eat beef but since she married me, she'd stopped due to my religion belief.
