Be ready, Prikið is here to provide you with all the cruelty-free bites you need, and it’s bound to be delicious. Together with the pop-up kitchen at B12, the good-old downtown diner turned into a hip party spot is offering only vegan options for the whole month of January.

Prikið had already been able to raise some eyebrows with their not-so-great-for-your-heart but perfect-for-your-soul vegan burgers. The place looks and feels like a classic neighborhood diner and, surely, serves the comfort food that you‘re looking after a long day of work or travel.

But making it vegan doesn’t change a thing; the plates are still full of different flavors-just less cruel ones. “To date, Prikið has been best known for the classic egg and bacon for breakfast, and burgers,” confesses Geoffrey Huntington-Willams, one of the owners, to Fréttablaðið, “The meat has been very present but we have improved a lot in recent years and have had a nice vegan menu for two years.”

Örn Tönsberg-A.K.A Össi-is the creator behind this pop-up kitchen. The name comes from the vitamin that gets all the non-vegans dead worried about plant-based eaters: B12. “This is the only vitamin that you do not get from the vegetarian diet. But that’s fine, taking B12 is a minor issue,” says Össi.

This said, the owners expect this pop-up kitchen to make everyone curious, and not just the ones who have already delved into the plant-based lifestyle. “We would like to contribute to our customers’ broader vision,” says Geoffrey. The vegan menu will be available throughout the month of January, but if the reception is good they might think about keeping it longer.
