THE GASTRO TRUCK
“The only thing on the menu at The Gastro Truck is crispy chicken burgers, served with delicious coleslaw made fresh daily,” says Linda Björnsdóttir who runs the food truck together with Gylfi Bergman Heimisson. Now they also have a succulent vegetarain version. When the truck is not running around Reykjavik, it serves the hungry crowd at Grandi Mathöll.
LAX – SEAFOOD AND BUBBLES
Reykjavik needed a Seafood & bubbly restaurant like the ones the owner Dagbjört Hafliðadóttir frequented while living abroad. So when she moved back home and being a cook herself, she decided to open Lax – Seafood & Bubbles. She imports her wine herself, Italian sparkling wine, which she serves with her seafood.
When she opened the doors she had mostly Icelandic clientele but now foreign customers are increasing all the time.
FUSION FISH & CHIPS
This is traditional Fish & Chips at its best. At the family-run restaurant Fusion Fish & Chips, you get fresh cod from the owner’s in-laws and it is served with a wonderful twist. They use tempura batter, Icelandic Wasabi, Japanese yuzu fruit and squid in. They also have a wide choice of vegan-Mayo dippings.
