IKEA is the world's largest furniture retailer, according to Forbes.
It's also one of the largest international restaurant chains.
Most IKEA food courts are famous for offering customers meatballs, a nod to the retailer's Scandinavian country of origin, Sweden. But with 313 stores in 38 countries and territories, IKEA's international menu varies from country to country. From Germany to India, IKEA stores across the world offer divergent dining experiences that are influenced by their location.
Of course, most IKEA food courts still offer customers the option for their fix of signature Swedish meatballs.
