I always love Ikea Cafe for its interesting way of ordering food and also its culture of returning-your-own-trays. It makes me feel like everyone is really civilised and considerate. This time, I shared a meal with a friend. We ordered the 20 meatballs, onion rings and a cheesecake! All in all it amounts to $18.20. The food looks so appetizing and yummy, I didn't even have the patience to take individual pictures before digging in!
Let me start with the meatballs. I think the standard of the meatballs seemed to have fallen over the years. It used to be quite springy and succulent, but yesterday's meatballs were kind of... soft and crumbles apart when you eat it. Oh well. The taste remains quite delicious though. The sauce is a bit creamy. There is a clump of jam (oh dear, I can't recognize what it is, I think it is raspberry? Definitely some fruit jam) to go with the meatballs. It has this sweet and fruity taste but I don't like it. I think it's weird to go with the meatballs... so I just stuck with the sauce. The potatoes at the side were quite hard. It's not mashed potato. It's filling but could be softer.
Onion rings are my favourite here! You don't feel like they re-used the oil to deep fry the onion rings. Whether they do so in actuality... I have no idea. At least it tastes good.
The cheesecake is my favourite part! It is quite different from other cheesecakes. This one is not the light, fragrant Japanese cheesecake that you normally find in NTUC/Bread Talk. It is more moist than usual cheesecakes and sour! I like sour cheesecakes. Anyway it's really nice.
I would say that this set shared by two people is just right to fill my stomach up
At the end of the meal I feel really happy. That's what Ikea does to people, I guess.
