There are quite a few reasons that the Hudson Valley needs an IKEA. Yes, they have furniture that you have to assemble with little Allen wrenches (Hex Keys) or small metal tools. While the furniture might be a bit challenging to assemble there is also something even better that you have to get while you visit, their meatballs!

You may have heard a few stories about the IKEA meatballs over the last few years, but here is how you can tell the difference between the three types:

  • GRÖNSAKSBULLAR means veggie "meat" balls
  • KYCKLINGBULLAR means chicken "meat" balls
  • ALLEMANSRÄTTEN means meatballs

Try these guys with the mashed potatoes and the ligonberries and you will find yourself heading to IKEA not just for the retail items but also for their restaurant/cafe.

How do you think we should go about getting IKEA to build a location here in the Hudson Valley and where do you think it should be located?
