We saw the rave reviews of Icelandic Street Food and figured we may as give it a shot. It was very busy when we arrived around 8pm in mid-June. They seem to have about 25-30 seats in their little cubby-hole of a restaurant: stools at tall tables. We ordered two lamb stews in bread bowls. It looked like there was no seating for us so we were given a coupon for a free beer and told we could go to their sister establishment (a pub?) a few doors down the street. As it turned out we were able to snag a seat.
Our two lamb stews were delivered. The lamb stew is actually in a broth, not a gravy. I didn't count the pieces of lamb in my stew but I don't think it was more than 5... It tasted fine and I ate most of the bread, which was thick and chewy (appropriate considering the liquid it was holding back!). Our stew was refillable but I didn't go for a refill.
Service was friendly and polite.
Reykjavik is incredibly expensive, so I will only say that the two lamb stews cost us about $50 CAD and that is probably about as cheap as you're going to eat for two in Reykjavik, unless you go to the grocery store and make your own meal, or eat basic hot dogs on the street. If you were to go for refills of the stew, then obviously, the value would be better.
But really, while the lamb stews were good, they weren't out of this world! However, we enjoyed ourselves and thought it was worth a visit.
