IKEA, Alam Sutera
IKEA Indonesia, one of biggest store where you can find many kind of home stuff for any room in your house.IKEA has a fresh concept for people doing shopping, they have a new theme of shopping is "serve yourself".
In Jakarta, we have some huge furniture and home stuff store e.g ACE Hardware, Informa, etc...But i can say IKEA is having different theme than others. IKEA has been opened for over a half of year which i still remember was really crowded traffic until i couldn't get parking that time. It's common thing for people in here always have a double passion for new trend, store, and absolutely for foods.
Since i am new, I am not going to write a lot in this post :-), i am just going to share some foods i had there. One of their favorite dish i had is Swedish Meatballs, its awesome! around Rp 60.000 i could get 20-30 meatballs, just let you know it's a real meatballs! not what you call "flourball" :-D
it's served with sauce like mushroom taste i guess and completed with mashed potato and i assure you mashed potato is good! with those meatballs portion sure fulfill my belly for quiet time.
Another dish i had was Salmon with Kucai sauce. Kucai is something lika Asia welsh onion. Salmon not in any seasoning, just plain, but in good shape, texture and it's absolutely real Salmon taste. It served with Kucai sauce and some vegies, cost around Rp 70,000, worthed to try.
After finished bunch of main course, i was taking a dessert, it's chocolate cake. Just common cake i can tell, well not too sweet, should try for your dessert if you're going to visit there.
One thing i need to mention is after we finished our foods, please assure you are leaving the table in clean condition. IKEA restaurant is the first place i ever found having this requirement in town. i assume it's one of Swedish culture out there. Well, i think this is good idea though, we may have gain good attitude and culture to our people here by clean up your table and having clean manners during breakfast, lunch, and dinner :)
