    If you haven't tried them, then try the kids portion for £1 which is served with a few boiled potatoes or fries, peas, with optional gravy (and don't forget your free piece of fruit with every childs meal at the till). If you go in the week, get a family card (outside the restaurant)for a free hot drink with free refill too!!!!!

    You know what healthy snack I have when I get my ikea bargains!

    My family love the meatballs too but to be honest - swedish meatballs are swedish meatballs - no Ikea ? No problems, Asda (and other supermarkets) sell the Swedish Kitchen meatballs - taste the same to me. Costco do 1kg trays for about the same price as Ikea. Taste much better with a homemade bolognaise sauce - fry finely chopped onions, garlic and tomatoes in a little olive oil. Add meatballs , some seasoning and a mix of tomato sauce and puree. Add some mixed herbs and voila ! Larvalee ... been to the Lidl in Heywood but couldn't find any ...

    Brilliant but tip: use cornflour or potato starch mix with water to avoid 'lumps' in your gravy !

    We live miles away from an IKEA too but whenever we are going on a long journey to Manchester or Heathrow Airport we make IKEA our stop instead of a motorway cafe... much cheaper too for food & drink - if we can be good and stop ourselves buying from the Market Hall!!

    I love meatballs and seem to have missed out on the ikea ones! Are they really nice? How much are they? Where in Ikea do they sell them? The restuarant or the foody bit? My local ikea is really close so I may have to pop in and try them!!


    I`ve just bought some today, cost £3.95 a bag :T

    Doesn't seem to matter to most, but I bet it would if it was known

    They don't have these in my local Lidl yet. Perhaps it won't be nationwide.

    I understand your concerns, but this is food for gods :rotfl:

    If you knew how most foods were compiled, then you'd end up just drinking water and that's recycled god knows how many times, especially in London :eek:
