I ate lunch at the IKEA Restaurant located at 151 NW 136th Avenue, Sunrise, FL. IKEA is a really big furniture store that has a little restaurant on the 2nd floor. We didn't go to IKEA for the food. My mom likes to feed us before we shop because it's a long walk around the store. The inside had bright colors and was set up like a buffet or cafeteria with lots of seating. I had the Swedish meatballs & gravy with fries, $4.99, and a bottle of apple juice, $1.29, to drink. There were a lot of meatballs, about fifteen of them. They didn't really taste like anything and I think they were frozen. The fries were pretty oily and not too tasty. Even though the gravy was a little bland, it was the best part of my meal. My brother got the chicken tenders, $5.99, and I had a bite. It was nothing special and tasted frozen, like my meatballs. My sister got the apple cake, $2.49, for dessert. I tried it and I thought the apples were dry and it tasted like it was frozen too. After we ate, we shopped around the rest of IKEA for about two hours, at least I was full. I give the IKEA Restaurant 2 1/2 sporks up!
Hi I'm Ellie. I'm 10 years old and in 5th grade. I love food so much that I decided to follow in my brother Wyatt's footsteps and become a food critic to share my honest opinion on food.
My brother Wyatt the former kid food critic
My brother Wyatt started this awesome blog back in 2012 when he was just 10 years old and in 4th grade. Over the next three years, he became the #1 kid food critic in the United States. In 2015, he was 13 years old and in 7th grade. He decided he was not the "kid" food critic anymore and it was time to retire.
My Spork Rating System
I use sporks to rate the food I eat. Five is the best, one is the worst.

This is my brother, Wyatt's, business card. Until I get my own, I still like to leave one on the table every time I visit a restaurant I review.
Wyatt taste tested some high end Halloween candy for the October 2013 digital issue of the luxury lifestyle magazine DuJour. It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it!
