If you are hungry after your shopping in Ikea, there is a snack shop just opposite the checkout counters, so that is really the first thing you see after paying for your goods and stepping out of the Ikea store. Popular items are the hotdogs and soft ice-cream, although they also sell other food like curry puff here.It's a self-serve shop so you have to queue at the counter to pay and collect the items to "DIY" at the side. For hotdogs, you'll get a plain bun with a chicken hotdog without sauce
It's a self-serve shop so you have to queue at the counter to pay and collect the items to "DIY" at the side. For hotdogs, you'll get a plain bun with a chicken hotdog without sauce and for ice creams, you'll get an empty ice cream cone and a token to activate the ice cream dispenser machine. The ice cream dispensers with How-To-DIY instruction signs above. Other than the ice cream dispenser, there are also two counters with chilli, mustard and tomato ketchup that you can choose to top your hotdog bun with, depending on your preferences. Hotdog (Mustard & Chilli) ($1.00)
For $1.00, this is really quite value for money. The bun is run-of-the-mill but the chicken hotdog is quite springy and delicious. The mustard sauce and chilli sauce are quite tasty and add a dash of sweetness, spiciness and zest to the hotdog bun. If you are won over by the sauces, they are actually also selling them in bottles at the Ikea Swedish Food Market next door!
Soft Ice-Cream ($0.50)
The ice cream is pretty smooth and creamy and the biscuit cone is quite crunchy. Taste-wise, I find this okay, not really the best I've tasted, but no complaints since this costs only $0.50.
Although the prices are already quite cheap for each item, there are still value set meals to give you even more value for your money! For example, it is only $2 if you get the set of hotdog, ice cream and a drink, which is also self-serve and refillable. Pretty worth getting!
