I was amazed about Ikea Restaurant’s low prices, selection and even family specials.
Their specialty, direct from Sweden, Swedish meatballs includes 10 tender chicken meatballs accompanied with a cream sauce, served with mashed potatoes and traditional lingonberry jam- $4.99. An alternative, 10 piece vegetable “veggie” meatballs, quinoa sweet potato chile, black beans and vegetables, $4.49.
Chicken Florentine- boneless breast of chicken with spinach and cheese, mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables, $6.99, 340 calories.
Antibiotic free Chicken breast, spinach, fresh strawberries, blue cheese and pecans salad, $4.99, 275 calories.
Kid’s meals only $2.49 each AND kids eat FREE on Tuesdays- 12 and under.
Feed a family of 4 for $20.00. This is a take home, easy meal which includes a bag of frozen salmon, packet of lemon and dill sauce and a box of potato fritters for $18.47. Forget about Colonel Sander’s package, this one sounds great!
You can also join Ikea, as a member save money at their restaurant. Choice of meatball entrée, soup or salad $5.49 for members, Non-member: $6.49 – $6.99.
Nutritional values of their meals are available.
No shopping on an empty stomach at Ikea Las Vegas because:
The Ikea Restaurant opens 30 minutes earlier than the store for a full hot breakfast, including scrambled eggs, potatoes and turkey sausage for only $1.00.
The 450-seat restaurant also offers a diverse menu featuring lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert, including Swedish specialties such as the popular IKEA Swedish meatballs (as well as chicken or veggie versions), seafood plates, pasta, chicken, salads, sandwiches, and vegetarian dishes too.
Menu choices for kids include a child’s portion of Swedish meatballs, chicken fingers or macaroni and cheese, while baby food and bibs are available for even younger visitors.
The Exit Bistro serves hot dogs, pizza, cinnamon buns, frozen yogurt, sundaes and beverages.
The Swedish Food Market offers Swedish delicacies, snacks and treats, and frozen Swedish meatballs (the same ones available in the Restaurant) to purchase and then prepare at home.
Ikea Department Store is located on the northern side of the 215 Beltway at S. Durango Drive, near Sunset Road.
