As a vegetarian it was always not that easy to eat at IKEA, if you wanted to try the famous Köttbullar but just couldn’t. But, also IKEA is going with the time and they don’t just want to become better as a company, they also want to offer their customers always something better. More than 600.000.000 customers appreciate the inexpensive but delicious foods at IKEA Restaurants worldwide and now the time has finally come: up from August 2015 IKEA offers Veggie Balls, worldwide!
During my visit to IKEA Temporary in Milan I was already able to try them, and only because of them I will visit IKEA more often up from August. They were offered in little boxes with 6 pieces each for three euros. As a side I’ve chosen the typical Italian oven potatoes. The Veggie Balls were a little crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, you could also clearly taste and see visible parts of vegetables. Compared to Falafel Balls, that have about the same size, the Veggie Balls are a little less seasoned but still delicious as the veggie taste is more prominent.
The Veggie Balls are made out of chickpeas, green peas, carrots, bell peppers, corn and kale. What they not contain is gluten, soy, nuts, egg and lactose, so nearly everyone will be able to enjoy them.
I don’t know yet in what variations and with what other sides the Veggie Balls at IKEA will be offered worldwide up from August, but also what’s written in the IKEA Temporary Brochure made me really looking forward to what IKEA is bringing in the future: “You can expect more of these new dishes in our restaurants moving forward – delicious, sustainable food at great low price”.
As a dessert I’ve indulged the Panettone Tiramisu. If you’re planning to visit Milan until the 31st of October, try it and you won’t regret it! You can also read more about Ikea Temporary at echochamber.

[…] satisfied. If IKEA would only sell the vegetarian hot dog sausages in addition to the Köttbullar balls, that would be great! 😉 Have you already tried the Veggie Hotdog at your IKEA, how did you […]
[…] As I’m a vegetarian I wanted to pre-order a vegetarian meal on board, as this is possible in Economy as well. As I was used to from Lufthansa I have to log-in online, select a meal and when entering the plane the food is already waiting for me. But really, how bad is the Turkish Airlines website? It’s either working in Turkish or English – for sure I’ve selected English – and somehow It was displayed in a mix of German, my native language, and English. Well. When checking my booked flight it only displayed that there is a flight, but nothing more. No meals to choose or even already a seat number. As I thought that it’s maybe a must to have a miles&smiles account, the Turkish Airlines loyalty program, I created an account. Believe me when I say write that I’m normally good and fast with similarities: it took me more than 30 minutes to create this Account. And now understand my frustration when I found out that I wasn’t even able to add this booked flight to my account. Really, I lost my belief in this company! […]
