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.
