Ikea Dresses Restaurant Like Their Catalog, Serves Swedish Meatballs with Mango Sauce


Ikea is letting fans of their Swedish-friendly furniture experience what it’s like to “live” in their showroom, by decking out a restaurant in tableware, beds, chairs, textiles, etc. straight from their catalog. Named “IKEA Lotus Collection Café,” the limited-time showroom-turned-eatery runs from April 29 to May 6 in Omotesandō, Tokyo in promotion of their Lotus Colleciton.

Diners can sit and wander around the cafe while enjoying items off the menu including dishes like Swedish meatballs doused in mango chili and raspberry sauce and salmon spring rolls. RocketNews24 got a peek of the eats:



The gimmick behind the week-long event encourages curious patrons to get cozy with the interior decor, as every dish, place mat, table, whathaveyou  is for sale. Slick, guys.
