After coming back from the Ten Thousand Buddhist Monestary in Sha Tin, we went to a Home Square mall and it contained an IKEA. This location is the largest in Hong Kong with 8,400 sq meters. I really wanted to see how the store layout and food compared to how it is in Vancouver.
It also won one “Best Restaurant Awards in 2012” for a Fast Food Restaurant on OpenRice.com.
All of the items in the IKEA bistro are similar to what you can find in North America. The item that I noticed that they have is popcorn. I haven’t seen this in the IKEAs in Vancouver.
There is also the Swedish Food Market where you can find frozen Swedish Meat Balls, fish, jam, juice, etc.
At the IKEA Restaurant, they have a few of the usual items like Swedish meatballs, vegetarian medallions, shrimp cocktail, and apple pie.
Their kids meal is a bit different too. Spaghetti, corn and sausages.
We were still full from a large lunch, so my sister and I got bottled drinks.
Grapefruit Juice was good and similar to the usual bottle juices.
Organic Soy Milk isn’t sweetened, so it tastes pretty bad if you are not used to drinking unsweetened soy milk. It is healthy for you, but I found it so hard to drink.
Another thing I found that was super different was the washing machine in the kitchens! It’s usual in Hong Kong. With the limited space, that’s where it goes instead of the dish washer.
