I never get bored with IKEA. Since they are open in Indonesia on mid 2014, i found a lot of generous comment for it also a continual improvement for their kitchen. I wouldn't talk about their unusual and cheap furniture, but let me introduce you some kind of food that you need to try whenever you plan a visit to this furniture store. Check this out!
Swedish Meatballs with Cranberry Sauce (IDR 40K / 10 pieces)
This is the main highlight of IKEA called Swedish Meatballs. Actually the meatballs is hand made and i do love the chewy little texture on it. The meat is absolutely juicy and tasty. More than that it's totally delicious, despite the fact it just looks really minimalist and simple. Actually the mashed potatoes quiet dense and heavy, technically it seems lack of flour and too much potatoes on it. But i really happy to find that cranberry sauce. It's simply taste unique when you combine all of that food into one single bites. Must try!
Swedish Poached Salmon with Chive Sauce (IDR 70K)
It's simply MARVELLOUS! The salmon was cooked perfectly and a pink colour on the centre define a good texture of it. The chive sauce seems to be quiet sticky and surprisingly it taste pretty good. I really love how they combine that salmon with the chive sauce to create a balance flavour and texture of this dish. Along with that, they gonna served you a mashed potato and fresh vegetables just in case you'll ask for the side dish.
Ayam Panggang Taliwang (IDR 50K)
Who's up for Indonesian cuisine? I bet everyone of you gonna love this. A nicely grilled chicken served with sambal and lettuce called Ayam Panggang Taliwang. I agree if it looks really simple, but to be honest the chicken is so BIG! I could tell you here, they'll served you a big part of chicken leg and i guarantee it wouldn't make you feel hungry anymore. The sambal is pretty hot and i'm a part of "sambalholic", which is really suitable with that red sauce. Absolutely great!
Fish and Chips (IDR 70K)
My FAVOURITE part is here! There is nothing more british, rather than Fish and Chips. Actually the fish was perfectly cooked, it's absolutely crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I do love the french fries as well, which is thicker and longer. Especially a garlic mayo on side seems work really well when you combine it with the fish or the fries. Whenever it looks really huge, i bet you wouldn't say enough after you taste it. Sadly they only served this during lunch time and it could be once a week (Mostly on weekdays. Random). So, if you come to this place and see this menu on their list, make sure to order it while it last!
Overall, IKEA Restaurant is absolutely brilliant. I saw so many people walk into IKEA just to taste their restaurant. I do love their furniture as well, because it's really affordable for sure (Most of my properties comes from this place). For those who are loving this place and agree with my words, feel free to put a comment below here and say your honest opinion about this. Enjoy!
