Meatballs and Beyond
When we think of Ikea we think of furniture and instruction manuals, but the store also has some amazing and strange foods available to buy. You may not find traditional Swedish delights such as Fiskbullar, which is actually fish balls, or Lutefisk, the country's classic dish of dried cod that's brined with lye, rinsed then boiled or baked and served with cream or butter (it has a notoriously potent smell and a consistency like Jell-O), but there are marinated herring varieties, an incredible salmon fillet, and of course, meatballs and lingonberry jam — all quite tasty. There's a nutrition guide for people with allergies to consult when shopping the best and weirdest foods offered at Ikea.
