Let us tell you about restaurants, bars, shops, and more that are New in Reykjavík in August 2018. This month: Rush Trampoline Park, Reykjavík Street Dog, Le KocK and Skelfiskmarkaðurinn.
Make your adrenaline rush! Rush Trampoline Parks are fun and exciting. Rush has trampoline parks around the globe and now runs a brand-new park in Kópavogur. Their branch in Kópavogur has lots of high-energy equipment like trampolines, climbing walls and a dodgeball field. Trampoline parks are fun for the whole family, and Rush puts an emphasis on safety. They also offer options for special events and birthday parties.
Reykjavík Street Dog
This might come as a surprise, but hot dogs are a popular local treat in Iceland. Reykjavík Street Dog on Skólavörðustígur, right by Hallgrímskirkja church, is the new place to be for your hot dog fix. They serve a lamb, beef and pork sausage in a bun with ketchup, special hot dog mustard and cronions. Go there for a crunchy, tasty afternoon snack.
Le KocK already made a mark in Reykjavík with their location in Ármúli, but their honest street food can now also be enjoyed by all the miðbæjarrótta (downtown rats) at their brand-new location on Tryggvagata. Their menu consists of roasted Icelandic potatoes with several toppings, a handful of tasty burgers, and the freshest doughnuts for dessert. Word is their portions are substantial, so you will not leave hungry.
On August 24, Iceland’s first restaurant serving Icelandic oysters opened on Klapparstígur. Oyster farming in Icelandic waters works exceptionally well, producing very clean and very fresh oysters that can be eaten straight from the sea. Skelfiskmarkaðurinn is the newest project of chef and restaurateur Hrefna Sætran, who is also behind popular fine-dining restaurants Fiskmarkaðurinn and Grillmarkaðurinn. Oysters are the cornerstone of the menu, but Skelfiskmarkaðurinn also offers a selection of dishes for those who don’t like oysters.
