New Food At IKEA Singapore: Cute $2 Tiger Buns, Sakura-Themed Donuts, Mala Wings & More For CNY 2022
The adorable viral shark buns from IKEA have since swum away from our shores after a limited-time run, but don’t be too disappointed about that, for the furniture giant’s new food offerings for Chinese New Year 2022 include new tiger buns which are equally cute! Along with this comes aesthetically-pleasing confections including sakura-themed donuts, as well as mala-infused mains.
These will be available at IKEA Singapore from now all the way till 28 February 2022 (while stocks last), so you’ll have ample time to give them a try even if your 15 days of CNY are packed to the brim with staggered house visits.
P.S.: You'll also love these tiger-shaped pineapple tarts from a popular bakery in Singapore!
Read on to find out more about IKEA Singapore’s Chinese New Year 2022 menu!
Little Tiger Buns with Kaya Filling ($2)
While the previous Shark Buns were filled with red bean paste, these steamed Little Tiger Buns come with kaya filling. They’re almost too cute to eat, and the affordable $2 price tag is an added bonus!
UPDATE: According to IKEA, there will be a slight delay with regards to these Little Tiger Buns due to their handmade nature, and they will only be available from 17 January onwards.
Mandarin Orange Chocolate Cake ($4)
Sweet-tooths will enjoy this Mandarin Orange Chocolate Cake, topped with orange-shaped chocolate pieces as a festive finishing touch. The stellar presentation makes it looks like something you’d get from a high-end patisserie, yet it only costs $4.
IKEA CNY Donuts ($7.80)
These CNY Donuts ($7.80) at IKEA’s Swedish Bistro come in assorted festive designs, including pink ones with sakura-themed icing and sprinkles! There’s also one that’s made to look like a mandarin orange.
Mala dishes at IKEA (from $8)
Furniture shopping can be pretty tiring, so fuel up after your expedition with IKEA’s fiery new mala dishes. The 6pcs Mala Chicken Wings ($10) look well-marinated, and the Plant Ball with Mala Spaghetti ($8) that’s suitable for vegetarians comes with a generous dollop of spicy sauce. Better have a drink ready just in case!
Those with large appetites will enjoy digging into the Mala Pork Ribs and Vegetable Money Bag with Golden Fried Rice ($13.80). Non-spice lovers, you’re missing out!
IKEA’s Bak Kwa and other Chinese New Year goodies
There’s also a wide selection of pre-packaged Chinese New Year snacks, which you can get at the Swedish Food Market, including Bak Kwa ($23.80 for 500g) and fresh mandarin oranges ($11.80 for 24).
Other goodies include Cranberries Pineapple Balls ($8.80) and cookies in flavours like Nutty Salted Caramel, Red Velvet Cheese, Strawberry Yogurt Oats, and White Chocolate Brownie.
