Best Of Reykjavík 2018: Best Veggie Burger

Published May 3, 2018

There has never been a more exciting time for the restaurant scene in Reykjavik. Thanks to burgeoning tourism, exposure, and a genuine curiosity for foods from far and wide, diners now have a plethora of choices on offer. Whether it’s high-end fine dining (we even boast a Michelin starred gem!), or a cheap late night bite, Reykjavik is coming into its own as a culinary destination, offering small plates, tasting menus, farm to table seasonal produce and classic Iceland cuisine, and all while accommodating vegans and vegetarians. The following restaurants are the very best, according to our panel of enthusiastic gourmands. Feel free to let us know what you think of our choices as you eat your way around the city. We’re listening. And we’re hungry.

Best Veggie Burger

Prikið
Bankastræti 12

One might not necessarily think of Prikið—an antique diner turned hip-hop party bar—when they think of food, let alone vegetarian food or vegan fare, but they offer both. They actually have not one but two vegan burgers on the menu, both of which have their own staunch fans. The Ronald vegan burger with coconut chips may sound weird, but it totally works. They also have a burger-and-a-beer happy hour so drop in and try it out.

Runner-Up:

Roadhouse Reykjavik
Snorrabraut 56

Roadhouse’s grilled celeriac ‘patty’ is one of the best interpretations of a vegan/veggie burger. Without resorting to Oumph, or the mystery mushy patty trickery, it’s a clever, smoky, delicious beast with all the trimmings. It’s available in both vegan and vegetarian versions.

Newcomer:

Bio Borgari
Vesturgata 12

A tiny crowd-funded burger shack run by two young entrepreneurs, Bio Borgari takes clean eating seriously. Their produce is organic, their buns seeded, and their wafer-thin root vegetables would give Tyrell’s a run for their money. The lentil seed patty is crisp and flavourful. For an unconventional take on the burger, Bio Borgari is a good bet.
