The good news: San Antonio is FINALLY getting its own IKEA.
The bad news: The Swedish furniture giant with the hard-to-assemble dressers/desks/kitchen cabinets won't break ground in Live Oak until 2018.
Which means we'll have to wait three long years to taste the oddly satisfying dish that is Swedish meatballs made with a combination of beef, pork, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, water, salt and pepper. At $4.99 for a plate with mashed potatoes, seasonal veggies, cream sauce and ligonberries, said meatballs might be one of the cheapest lunches in town when IKEA opens its doors (you know, if you're willing to lose just a little bit of your sanity every time you step into the store).
