Guilty Pleasure: Ikea Swedish Meatballs
I worked up a serious appetite while shopping for arts and crafts on Columbus Blvd and needed something nearby that would be ready for me to eat immediately. It took some convincing, but I got my ladies to agree to stop at… the Ikea Food Court!
I needed my Swedish meatball fix! It looks like there are about 16 of these mostly roundly shaped balls of questionable meat, plus a scoop of perfectly decent mashed potatoes, and of course, the real crown jewels- the brown gravy and lingonberry sauce. All of this for a mere $3.99! Ikea really knows how to make a good deal. This was not my first rodeo with the meatballs, and sadly they were a little drier than past experiences. But once covered in salty gravy and the tart lingonberries, it doesn’t really matter. Besides this signature platter, I also love the lingonberry soda and recommend picking up a bottle of elderflower syrup for cocktails. And where else can you buy a lamp with your lunch?
