Hello everyone! Things have been radio silent around here for a couple of months now, so I want to take a few minutes and discuss what’s been going on, where I’ve been, and what’s next for Kettle & Kale! Long story short, I cannot afford to be the vegan travel writer that I initially set out to be. But that does not mean that I am disappearing!
I adored this restaurant’s fresh take and unique food combinations. My husband also remarked about the ambiance: even as the restaurant began to fill with patrons, we were never rushed away from our table. The kitchen kept the courses spread out so we could digest, talk, and enjoy the experience.If you are looking to celebrate a special vacation as you travel through Iceland, I cannot recommend Von Mathús enough.
Iceland: picturesque, chilly…and expensive. This year, the Europe Backpacker Index listed Reykjavik as one of the least budget friendly cities for traveling. The money travelers keep in their wallets when purchasing low-cost airfare can disappear quickly upon arrival— especially when it comes time to eat. Going into my trip to Iceland armed with the knowledge that of the low-cost dining options are not the most vegan friendly, I was nervous about how I might eat without breaking the bank. When we arrived, we quickly realized just how easy eating vegan on a budget in Reykjavik can be!
While at times we did eat a bit more extravagantly (such as our discovery of the best vegan brunch spot in Reykjavik), here are some of our favorite vegan budget dining locations, as well as a few tips we used to get the most calories for our krona.
