Reykjavík is a great place for food. It has a lot of cuisines you can choose from. So skip those awful hotdogs and have some decent food. [I don’t know why I never liked those immensely popular hotdogs. I guess there may be lamb in them.]
My favourite restaurants are:
- Sushi Samba, Þingholtsstræti 5
The one place I definitely go to when in Reykjavík. If I had one night in Reykjavík, I would go to this place. They offer both Japanese and South American dishes. I adore their sushi. Slightly spicy, but not too hot. My friend Lindsay had coriander chicken breast and that tasted great too.
I have got one remark though, on behalf om my friend G. They used to have a great pop rock cocktail which they took off the menu. They should bring it back for her.
- Bragagata 38A
- Laugavegur 81
- Suðurlandsbraut 12
Restaurants come and go in Reykjavík but this one has been around for a very long time.The Bragagata Eldsmiðjan was already there during my Erasmus in 2002. It was one of the few times I allowed myself the luxury of dining out. Even my four Italian housemates really liked this place.
This Italian place is really cosy and they do great pizza.Last time (2015) I had a delicious Quatro Stagione (the one on the crapy picture :))
- Icelandic fish and chips, Tryggvagata 11
Even though I am a Belgian, I don’t like chips. I did like the fish and the skyronnaise dip the first time I went there. In 2015 (in their new place) I had langoustines and they were simply amazing. The friends who joined me weren’t overwhelmed by the way the fish was prepared, so I have to go there again next year and try it.
- Hressó, Austurstræti 20
