Vegan Iceland – Gló
- There a four branches on Gló in Reykjavík all together and one is fully vegan. We planned on going to the vegan one but accidentally ended up at the one on Laugavegur right by all the main shops in Reykjavik. It was no problem because they have a lot of vegan items on their regular menu too. The only we would like to have tried that was only available at the vegan branch was the pizza but the location that we were at was just so much more convenient for last day souvenir shopping.
I really wanted soup and I believe the soup of the month is always vegan. In November it way coconut curry soup which was delicious. I loved the coconut bits in it which gave it a bit of texture. It came with a slice of sourdough bread and a bit of hummus. It was just what you needed on a November day in Iceland, it was hot and just spicy enough and I just love that it came with hummus.
Billy had the veggie burger which came with sweet potato fries and sauce. The burger patty was nice and has lots of beans in and the sweet potato fries were nice (and a nice change from regular fries). The only bad thing was that it had a lot of sauce on and Billy really doesn’t like sauce. If we were ever to visit again I’m sure they would happily leave the sauce off but we didn’t realise how much would be on it. I’d probably have loved it, we just have different tastes. The only odd thing was that it only had bread on the bottom and not the top, but the bread that he had he said was really nice.
At £23.20 for both meals it wasn’t very expensive for Iceland. They also had cakes and I wish I had bought one because they looked so nice but I was just too full at the time. They even had a Snickers cake and
a cheesecake! Overall, Gló is a great place for a warming lunch in Reykjavík. During our stay in Reykjavík we also ate at Veganæs.
