Ikea's famous meatballs are coming to Uber Eats – but only for a limited few

Residents close to its kitchen in Hoxton, London will also get some of the homeware as well as their food.

Uber Eats is gaining a temporary resident in the form of Ikea this weekend providing a limited taste of its famous meatballs cooked and ready to eat at home.

The Swedish company is offering a number set meals starting from £10, but only if you live within a two mile radius to its kitchen in Hoxton, London.

Ikea is running the special event to celebrate fredagsmys, roughly translated to “cozy Friday”, a tradition in the country to mark the end of a busy working week.

Between November 16 and 20, customers can order one set menu per order which comes with some of their own home products.

This includes everything from Swedish meatballs, sides and a dessert, alongside the furniture store’s own cushion cover, napkins, throw and candles for two, costing £10.

There’s also a veggie balls alternative with vegetarian-friendly sides and dessert, with a selection of other products such as wine glasses, as well as a bigger family platter for £20 with a bigger mix for four eaters.

Ellie Pniok, commercial food manager for Ikea UK and Ireland, said: “Let’s enjoy the restorative power of fredagsmys, a tradition that reminds us to enjoy the little things and celebrate the wonderful things that can happen in homes. Everyday.”
