Iceland's First Food Hall
What’s not to love about a food hall? A variety of food and drinks from multiple food vendors giving you plenty options to eat no matter what mood you’re in! Iceland’s first food hall in Reykjavik is not to be missed if you are visiting. Hlemmur Food Hall (Hlemmurmatholl) has Mexican tacos, Vietnamese street food, Scandinavian cuisine, ice cream, and more - seriously, so many options!
Here is a quick breakdown of what each vendor offers:
SKÁL! - an experimental bar & restaurant with a focus on foraged Icelandic ingredients and local traditions
Jómfrúin - serving smørrebrød (danish open faced sandwiches) in a stall, this location is the little sister to Jómfrúin Scandavian Kitchen
Taqueria la Poblana - authentic Mexican tacos & cuisine, they also have micheladas!
Micro Roast Te & Kaffi - coffee bar focusing on fresh-roasted coffee and seasonal specialties
Kröst - specialized in grilled delicacies, cured meats and french wine
Rabbar Barrin - fresh soups, salads and sandwiches using locally grown produce
Báhn Mí - Vietnamese coffee and báhn mí sandwiches (yum!)
Isleifur Heppni - liquid nitrogen ice cream made to order (this was closed when we visited in November, I think it may be seasonal)
After much consideration we decided to dine at SKÁL! - check out what we had below!
with birch syrup, raisins and brown butter
with arctic thyme salt and herb mayo
with goat cheese, pickled celery and coriander
I don’t remember exactly what beer this was but it was an IPA from a local brewery. Iceland has a great craft beer scene!
