Ikea:Unexpected Ice Cream Destination.


These are days in which multi-tasking, thinking outside of the box and whatnot are seen as essential skills.
That’s probably why nobody is surprised one bit to find gourmet restaurants at the back of a curtain shop, cocktail bars under a launderette, and all sort of food on sale next to bookcases and bedside tables.

Ikea food is famous for the meatballs with cranberry sauce, the ‘elk-shaped’ pasta, and the hot dogs, but I would have never imagined it would become one of our ice cream destinations. And yet!

First the data: at the shops after the tills, an ice cream (vanilla, chocolate or both mixed together) costs 1 AED.
Yes, I wrote that right: ONE Dirham, which is the equivalent of 0,17 GBP.
Seventeen pence.  Let that sink in.

See? I am not lying.

Now, I am not trying to be cheap, but what can we buy nowadays with 17p? I can’t think of anything, not even a song on iTunes, hence I could stop writing right now and it would be already a reason enough to recommend it.

BUT the ice cream is actually really yummy:  a simple and yet lovely soft served cone. And if we really want to splurge we can have a biscuit to go with it, but it will cost us another 0,17 pence, so I am not sure about it…

What’s here not to love?

IKEA ABU DHABI is on Yas Island, very easy to find as there are plenty of signs.
