Food lovers, here's a preview of the dining areas and food market at IKEA Philippines:

IKEA Philippines will have four main food-related areas, so you're in for a treat whether you're looking to fill up right on the spot or stocking up or your home pantry. These areas are the Swedish RestaurantSwedish BistroIKEA Café, and Swedish Food Market

The Swedish Restaurant is located on the fourth level, and lets you have a taste of the cuisine of IKEA's home country. You can, for one, get your fix of their famous Swedish Meatballs (starts at P159/eight pieces), which is smothered in gravy and served with mashed potato, broccoli, and the Nordic essential that is lingonberry jam for a sweet, fruity contrast to the other savory elements. Just some of the other dishes you can expect are the Baked Salmon Fillet (P345), as well as the Crunchy Almond Chocolate Cake (P89) for dessert.

For a quick and light bite, head to the Swedish Bistro on the third level. Go ahead and refuel with a casual snack and drink—perfect in the midst of a long day of shopping! Go ahead and munch on a Hotdog (P29) or Cinnamon Bun (P35), and sip on beverages like the Brewed Coffee (P35) on the side.

Looking to slow down and maybe bond with a friend over a freshly brewed cup of joe? The IKEA Café on the third level is for you. It's all about fika here—a.k.a. the Swedish concept that isn't quite directly translatable to English, but encompasses the notion of making time to pause and mingle with others, or catch up with your loved ones; this is often done in the company of coffee and a sweet or savory treat on the side. True enough, you can find coffee drinks like the Americano (starts at P114/hot or iced with one cookie); plus, baked treats like the Chocolate Cake (P99) and Butter Croissant (P49)!
