Backdated : Dinner at IKEA

I shall stop with the Wordless for a while… need to catch up on my backdated post, else I can’t get to my recent posts haha.

So here goes, after the dinner at Turf Club hubby and I met up with friends in IKEA for dinner the next day. I warn you not to read this on an empty stomach! If you have an empty stomach now… come back after you have eaten. Any cravings after reading this post is not my fault :P because after blogging about this, I am craving myself too! Haha!

Anyway; (you still have time to leave and go eat first…)

We left the house at evening. I caught the sun setting behind the trees.

I couldn’t resist taking a shot of it so I did! Look at it, so beautiful :).

We were actually late, because our friend was doing some window shopping in IKEA for ideas to decorate their soon to buy apartment earlier and of course was there already since afternoon.

We arrived at IKEA.

Look only a matter of walks away! We are reaching soon! Wait for us!

The restaurant.

Look at the crowd in the place. Hard to see… I know the picture is blur, but hubby was rushing me going “Already late! Hurry up!” (least that is what I remembered he said I think…) haha so I took a lousy shot… though of course there is no guarantee that I will manage to take a good shot if he didn’t rush me either.

A phrase I can’t resist to shoot.

“You don’t have to be rich to be clever” Oh so very true! Don’t you think? Fits in a lot ways somehow! Hehehe.

We soon arrived at the restaurant. It was definitely crowded! Our friends took a table of 4 people and only two of them were sitting there, so it was awkward for them… sorry for making you both look like bad people~ *bows repeatedly*

The food we had;
Stuffed Salmon.

Hubby wanted Poached Salmon actually but they did not have it that day so our friend decided to order this for him instead. Hubby shoved most of this to me =.=

Swedish Meatballs.

Of course a never failed dish to order! I definitely love this. Their cranberry sauce is much nicer than one in Malaysia. I wonder why and they give you more sauce and cranberry sauce if we ask but not in Malaysia! Stingy people pffft!

Fried Chicken Wings.

Singapore IKEA has friend chicken wings! I remember in Malaysia, the IKEA I went to near the Curve only has Roasted / Grilled Chicken Wings. I wonder why… but the Fried Chicken Wings are yummy. Not too salty… crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. Oh and this picture was slightly over exposed and blur, was too hungry after looking at all the food myself I guess haha!

I miss IKEA’s meatballs already… But since I ate those in Singapore, the ones in Malaysia just doesn’t come anywhere close to compare anymore.

Ok enough of making you hungry. Hee~ *smiles evilly* >:D.

suituapui said...

Ah! The meatballs!!! I've heard SO much about them but I've never had the chance to try them. Must make it a point to go there and eat should I get the chance to go to KL again...

Mei Teng said...

I have never tried the food at Ikea before. Hmm...I should one day.

ladyviral said...

suituapui : Oh yes you need to! They sell outside too at their market if you want some to bring back home to cooked yourself.

Do remember to go eat it when you come to KL :D.

ladyviral said...

Mei Teng : You have not tried? Oh if you see the Poached Salmon (I am not sure if is was limited or random change) make sure to order it... I know I loved that when I tasted it.

lina said...

so bad lah you... and I don't know why I keep reading your food post at 6.00pm! LOL

lina said...

I like Ikea's salmon. My hubby and son loves their meatballs.

Haiya! Have to find reason to go Ikea and eat some.

Again! LV, you evil you. Not only I have TGIF on my list, now add Ikea pulak! LOL

lina said...

Next time I visit Ikea, have to avoid eating the cheap hot dogs and go to the cafe pulak! Eat proper food! :D

molly said...

Wah, eat out again. Time to start home cook food for your hubby now and then for your children and then grandchildren. Hehehe.. I think too far already.

foongpc said...

OK, I'll leave now for dinner then come back : )

foongpc said...

But the pull of your blog is too strong! Ugggh!! Cannot resist! Must read first!!!

foongpc said...

Nice photo of the sun setting behind the trees!

foongpc said...

Rushing also must take photo? Haha! That's how we bloggers are like that. Die die also must take photos! : )

foongpc said...

You don't have to be rich to be clever, but do you have to be clever to be rich? ; )

foongpc said...

The swedish meatballs look so delicious! But how come when I eat at IKEA Malaysia, it's not that nice? So Singapore's IKEA has better quality food? Hmmpph!!

foongpc said...

Actually I'm not a big fan of fried chicken wings, so it's OK if don't eat this. Haha!

OMG! I'm so hungry and I totally blame you for this!!

foongpc said...

But luckily my food is here! I'm going to have a feast! Yay!!!

Life Ramblings said...

smallkucing said...

I tried once the meatball at Msia IKEA. Didnt like it.

~dolly~ said...

levian said...

man, you are so evil! XD nono, i skipped through the "food" photographs, especially the chicken wing (opps! :p), but i did not skip through the scenery ones, nor the one with the phrase. it is right in the moment, wasn't it! ;)

Cascia said...

It sounds like you had a lot of fun. I've never been to Ikea but I've heard that it is something else.

ladyviral said...

lina : I don't know why you keep reading my blog at 6:00pm XD. But then again it is good to read before meal too. At least, you will be hungry after reading and then after meal you won't remember hehe :P.

>.< more to add to the list! Well, don't have to think too hard of where to go anymore for food for some time :P. *smirks*

Oh IKEA's hotdog is good too! I like it with mustard and sauerkrat!yum yum!

ladyviral said...

molly : Hahaha! Not that I want to eat out... but my mom-in-law doesn't allow us in her kitchen :/.

Besides we went out to meet friends ^_^. Not everyday I am in SG so they wanted to see me mar haha!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Hahaha! Guess the force in me is too strong! You not going anywhere! :P

Yea bloggers just have to take every picture :P. Everything they can, to write about it, to be inspired :D.

Yea somehow the meatballs in IKEA Malaysia is ok-ok only. Nothing to shout about. Different I guess :P.

You are hungry?! Not my fault! You have yet to eat dinner when you read this!

I hope you had a good feast :P.

ladyviral said...

Life Ramblings : Yea should :). Though I think the meatballs is not edible by you. :/
But the salmon is good! Poached Salmon must try... I don't know if IKEA Malaysia has Stuffed Salmon or not... but I don't recommend that :P.

ladyviral said...

Kucing : The meatballs in IKEA Malaysia somehow tasted bland :x.

ladyviral said...

~dolly~ : Don't lick the monitor Donna!

ladyviral said...

levian : Moi? Evil? Naw *halo above head lights up* See *points at halo* innocent :D.

Oooh.. good good... now don't forget the food picture :P.

ladyviral said...

Cascia : Well, yea I do ^_^. Meeting friends is always the best :).

Oh something else? Would it be of the furniture and decoration that you heard of? Afterall, when you talk to someone who eats only :P all we can is about food heheh~

iamthewitch said...

Argh I didn't manage to have breakfast today and it's 10.30am now and my stomach is growling so badly I can hear it from here!!! Ahh... I have only tried IKEA Malaysia's meatballs and I thought they were not bad. The Singapore version must be out of this world!!! *growls* Oops, did you hear that? :P

ladyviral said...

Witch : Whoops... Another hungry reader! "Oops I did it again" :P

Ewww I just quoted Britney >.<;

Well, that is my opinion that the Singapore IKEA's meatballs are better... maybe different to other people's tastebuds :P.

Now now, better go eat before the growls create a mini earthquake :P.

Faisal Admar said...

i heard meatball there the best?

yep, true, you don't need to be rich to be clever. but usually those who are clever, are rich too.

ladyviral said...

Faisal : IKEA meatballs? Yep :).

Well, that is why it goes "You need to be clever to be rich" hahaha!

Mariuca said...

Here I am with my very late CHOP! :)

Mariuca said...

I've never had the stuffed salmon LV, not sure if we have that here or not...cause usually order the meatballs he he!

Mariuca said...

I will ALWAYS ask for "extra gravy and cranberry sauce pls" whenever I have the meatballs. :)

Mariuca said...

But usually I'll order the kids' meatballs, then I'll have the shrimp open-face sandwich too. So yummy!

Mariuca said...

But the stuffed salmon is seriously bugging me now, cause I just woke up and right now all I can think about is dinner @ IKEA tonight hohohoh! :)

Mariuca said...

I oso need to get a new lamp for my home-office... yeah I already have 2 inisde my office but I took one out into the living-room recently cause the one there is out a goner hahaha, so now great excuse to shop for lamp and enjoy some meatballs tonight! :):):)

ladyviral said...

Mariuca : Hahha hi there! Late indeed :P.

It is my first time having stuffed salmon too. In fact I usually see the poached salmon. I always ask for extra gravy and cranberry sauce XD. Never fail! But the IKEA in Malaysia are stingy! They never give >:(. Kid's meal? I always order the adult size one cause I sshare with hubby :P. It won't be enough for him!

I never tried their sandwiches or the shrimp salad before... I should one day hehee.

Looks like a good reason to go to IKEA tonight! More a reason to go there for dinner too haha!
