Iceland

Travelling to Iceland filled with excitement but fear that the only things to eat were shark and whale!

However, Iceland was amazing and better than I expected! From the picture above you can see that Iceland is just stunning, mountains/glaciers/geysers everywhere and even in Reykjavik (not once have I spelt that correctly!) there is amazing street art on the buildings.

It is true you can eat puffin, whale, fermented shark and even the Icelandic Horse. However, there is one fully vegan cafe (Kaffi Vinyl) and most restaurants have vegan options (for example Glo – Engjateigur) and if not when I asked they were happy to make something special for me (hopefully they didn’t spit in my food!)

We ate at a nice restaurant called Kol (https://kolrestaurant.is/) they had the best starters of maple glazed roots, which was the best dish I had in Iceland, then Vegan Nut steak, which was good but I preferred the starters. For dessert they did not have anything vegan so the chef made me a lemon sorbet with a berry consume-really good!

 

Another good restaurant was Grillmarkadurinn (http://www.grillmarkadurinn.is/en/) for lunch they didn’t have anything vegan (although for dinner they have one dish) the chef made me grilled mushrooms, fried vegetables and then a salad with nuts and pomegranates-very impressed!

Reykjavik has an amazing bakery called Braud&Co (http://www.braudogco.is/) and they have great rye breads and sourdough breads, they even have a vegan dark chocolate, nuts and fruits cake-heaven!
