IKEA Restaurant is located at the entrance and exit of the IKEA showroom. You can have your breakfast, lunch, or dinner here before going to the IKEA Self-serve area (looking like a factory) to take your furniture. There is another smaller restaurant, Bistro located near the checkout of the IKEA Self-serve area, but this post is about the IKEA Restaurant. There are some Swedish dishes as well as local dishes.
There is a serving area where you can order foods, and eating area. There are places where you can fill your coffee and drinks.
Menus on display on the screen at the serving area.
You need to take three of these trays and put it on the trolley, so that you can put foods you want on them.
Here are some of the foods you can take:
And the famous Swedish meatballs, you can buy these in packets at the Swedish Food Market near the IKEA Self-serve checkout:
Here are some foods that I ordered:
I like the jam that gives the meatballs sweet flavors.
You can buy these frozen meatballs at the Swedish Food Market in IKEA itself. It is called KÖTTBULLAR Meatballs (beef), frozen, 1kg (RM 33.90).

I have been trying dahmakan food delivery service in Malaysia on and off for about 1 year now. I ordered online without using app. My verdict is, its a bit expensive (one meal around RM20), the foods are delicious, they were prepared by chefs. The portions are small. Also, you can’t order on demand, you need to order a day before or if evening, order in the morning, unlike FoodPanda and others.

I heard they are coming up with Rockchop, a cheaper version of dahmakan.
GrabFood replaces UberEats, is a competitior of FoodPanda, another Food delivery app (I know, I am very lazy to go out). The ordering is the same, and it shows where the driver is at in the app’s map, the arrow will move.
The delivery fee is RM5, no minimum order, unlike Foodpanda, which is a plus point.

I ordered a Nasi Lemak and some petai from Village Park restaurant (the best Nasi Lemak in KL, as they said), they are also the featured partner of GrabFood, so I tried it.
The GrabFood driver arrived in his green Grab shirt, and handed me a GrabFood paper bag, unlike FoodPanda, but this is because its the first time, no paper bag for subsequent orders.
The foods packaged nicely, still very hot.

This is my second time ordering. Just a simple meal from Shihlin One Utama.
No paper bag this time.
Very hot mee suah, and oyster which I find raw.
Would I try again? Yes, but the delivery fee is a bit expensive, KFC is RM3. I hope GrabFood can do better than FoodPanda because I like the everything Grab concept.

Cost: RM15.50 + RM5.00 (delivery) = RM20.50
I get RM10 discount, so I paid RM10.50.
My most favourite chicken rice shop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The chicken rice shop has two shops, one is located at the upscale “enclosed triangular” commercial shop-lot area called Desa Sri Hartamas.
There are two types of chicken rice, roasted or steamed. I prefer steamed chicken breast. You can choose to have a set that comes with a Lotus Root Soup/ 莲藕汤, Chicken Feet Groundnuts Soup, or Pork Ribs with Old Cucumber Soup. I like the thick soy sauce (available in the bottle) that gives the white chicken and rice more flavor.
Address: 30, Jalan 27/70a, Desa Sri Hartamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Hours: 11AM–3PM, 5:30–9PM daily

Kinokuniya bookstore in Suria KLCC is the biggest bookstore in Malaysia. As a self proclaimed bookworm, I thought I would go there and have a look, first time in my 25 years of existence. Suria KLCC is easily accessible by LRT. I am very satisfied as the shop is quite nice looking and has all the books that I can remember from the top of my head as well as new books on artificial intelligence, blockchain, leaderships, etc.
I was wondering why the book store dedicated a Japanese section, then I remembered that Kinokuniya is from Japan, and KL is one of its branches.
There’s also a section for comics, which I find quite a balance among the other books.
Address: KLCC, 406-408 & 429-430, Suria, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
