Let us tell you about Reykjavík’s newest restaurants, bars, hangouts, and more. This month: DEIG, Chido, Kvartýra №49, and Fuego.
DEIG, applauded for their tasty bagels, recently opened their second location at Tryggvagata 14. They pride themselves for making all their rolls and pastries every morning from scratch. As they don’t freeze any of their products, they close shop when they run out of pastries for the day. Fresh produce guaranteed! Next to bagels, their doughnuts, sourdough loaves with beer grains, croissants, and cinnamon twists are extremely popular. Just try it yourself, you will not be disappointed.
Chido is a Mexican restaurant chain from Denmark, which recently added a location in West Reykjavík. They have an extensive Scandi-Mex menu with quesadillas, salads, burritos, and tacos, served with original Mexican Jarritos soft drinks. They make their own hot sauce with fresh chilies and pineapple, and you can decide how hot you want your food without additional cost. They also offer gluten free and vegan options.
Kvartýra №49 is a brand-new concept store, located at Laugavegur 49. They are the first ones in Iceland selling exclusive international brands like SJYP, Études, Sputnik 1985, Volchok, Nanushka, Reike Nen, and more. They present quality clothing, alongside a selection of perfumes, soaps, bags, jewellery, albums, and magazines. It’s the perfect place for those looking for something exciting and new. What are you waiting for? Get yourself a new look this winter.
Newly opened inside Hlemmur Food Hall is Fuego, a LA-style taqueria. Every day, they offer five or six original and tasty tacos, inspired by tacos sold on the streets of Los Angeles. We heard their fish taco is already making waves in the local foodie culture but be sure to also try their beef and vegetable tacos. Go there for reasonably priced comfort food made with fresh ingredients.
