- IKEA’s Swedish Food Market and Bistro will open soon, with the Market opening on 23 June and the Bistro opening on 26 June!
- Unfortunately, there will still be restrictions in place.
- IKEA Restaurant & Småland will also remain closed until further notice.
If you’re a fan of IKEA’s hot dogs and chicken wings, chances are you’ll have been disappointed when their bistro and food market didn’t reopen once Phase 2 began. But there’s good news – the Food Market is opening today, and the Bistro will open on the 26 of June!
You’ll be able to get your hands on your favourite hot dogs and chicken wings soon!
When IKEA resumed business on 19 June after Phase 2 was announced, it warned that it wouldn’t be opening its Bistro, Food Market and Restaurants immediately.
Now, though, things have changed, and the Food Market and Bistro will reopen on 23 and 26 June respectively. Great for all of us who’ve been missing IKEA food!
Restrictions Still In Place
That being said, however, restrictions will still be in place to ensure the safety and health of IKEA’s customers, especially for the Bistro.
If you’re planning to head down once the Bistro opens, here are some things you need to take note of:
- The Bistro will only be offering items from the a-la-carte menu only, which means no Combo sets. (This still means you can get: hot dogs, chicken wings, curry puffs and spring rolls!)
- It will also not be offering ice cream and yoghurt temporarily, and its soft drinks and coffee machines will also be unavailable. Only bottled, can and packet beverages will be sold.
- In addition, the condiment station will not be open, although packets of and ketchup will be given upon request.
- Finally, the Bistro dining area will also be closed.
And if you’re headed down to the Swedish Food Market, you can buy some frozen meatballs! Hooray!
You’ll have to wait a little longer if you want the full dine-in experience, though.
In addition to these safety measures, IKEA Tampines’ bakery and candies sections will have co-worker assistance for picking and packing – the staff will pick your bread and candy for you after you’ve made your selection – and all candy at IKEA Alexandra will be packed into 100g packets, ready for purchase.

We know, we know. You’ll have to wait a little longer for the full IKEA experience. At least it’s open, though!
As the situation continues to develop, continue to wear masks and practice social distancing, friends!
