New Swedish Bistro Opens at IKEA Tampines Carpark

Enjoy their best-selling dishes without having to join the crazy long queues inside!

In case you didn’t know, Singapore currently has three IKEA outlines on the island. They are IKEA Tampines, IKEA Alexandra, and most recently, IKEA Jurong! The massive Swedish conglomerate is a favourite for many Singaporeans, especially their iconic Swedish meatballs!

Be it on weekends or during weekday dinners, large crowds often flock there just to have a taste of IKEA’s Swedish meatballs and juicy chicken wings. 

Most importantly, we can’t leave without stopping by the snack stand for a crazy affordable ice cream cone and hotdog!

However, we’ll admit that getting through the labyrinth of showrooms just to get a bite of the tasty food can be troublesome. That is why, you’ll be happy to know that a new Swedish bistro has recently made its debut at IKEA Tampines

This is the first of its kind in Singapore! This new bistro is located on Level 1 near the entrance of the car park. Nope, this isn’t a drive-thru ordering system; so, you’ll still need to park your car before making your way over.

The automated ordering system mimics what you’d find at McDonalds or KFC, making the ordering process from start to finish very efficient. In other words, you’ll just need to order and make payment, then get your queue number. After which, simply wait for the delicious goodies to be ready! 

What to order at the Swedish bistro

The Swedish bistro at IKEA Tampines serves everybody’s classic favourites: Swedish meatballs served in cups (not forgetting the gravy, mashed potatoes, and lingonberry jam) and the classic hotdog. However, this time, it’s topped with premium condiments like nacho cheese sauce, scallions, and fried shallots!
