Food in Ikea

Ikea is the place you go when you want to shop for furnitures and home decorations; or to get ideas for interior design. But did you know that the food in Ikea is totally not bad at all with reasonable price and a fun way of self-serving? Zilin and I purposely went to Ikea for lunch haha! And here are the food we ordered:
Five pieces of meat balls with chips. You are supposed eat it with the gravy and strawberry sauce but I prefer only with the gravy. The plastic plate turns everyone off I know, but the taste is superb! It's only RM 5.
Baked salmon. The side dish is... erm... I think it's fried potatoes. Though the salmon tasted a little raw but the gravy was delicious, and the potatoes were good too. This costs RM15.90.
Chicken pie with mashed potatoes. The chicken pie, we both agreed, tasted like Seremban Siew Pau. Exactly the same taste. Zilin said maybe the Seremban Siew Pau imitate the western chicken pie. Well, possibly. The mashed potatoes were just okay. Cause we had this two days after the Italiannies Christmas dinner so I thought the mashed potatoes and its gravy in Italiannes tatsted better. The carrots, on the other hand, dipped in the gravy tasted weird. This costs RM7.
Finally, the dessert - Daim cake. Erm... or was it Daim pie? I don't remember. Anyway, this is a little too sweet. This should be shared by at least four people. Zilin and I had difficulty finishing it as both of us don't really like sweet stuff. This costs RM4.90.
We also ordered a glass of soft drinks. You can either order coffee/tea or soft drinks. The drinks are bottomless. There were four choices of soft drinks and another four for coffee/tea. The total came up to RM33++ including tax. We thought it was about the same price as having fast food. The amount of food we ordered were for three actually. But again because Zilin was there, we could finish it all up.
