IKEA was a big deal when it first came to Charlotte, but my abbhoration of crowds prevented me from going to the opening. I’ve finally made it, and I can report every piece of furniture would look great in a college dorm room. If you are currently living in a dorm, go.
If you like cheap food, go. I’d long heard about the wonderful Swedish meatballs served and they really are good! But. They taste and look like they’ve been mass produced and frozen. But that’s kind of IKEA’s deal, right? They’re still good. You get 15 meatballs, mashed potatoes (real!), cream sauce and lingonberries for $3.99. For real.
But what is even better? The North Atlantic Saithe crusted white fish served with mashed potatoes and carrots. It’s a buck more, but I so dig fish, I didn’t care. It is NOT fishy tasting in the least. I felt like I was eating all healthy and it was delicious.
Now, you are energized to go shopping in the biggest store I’ve ever been in. Get your Swede on.
P.S. Sorry about the crummy pictures. I got the camera at IKEA 😉
