Chips 2Icelandic musicians Ólafur Arnalds and Friðrik Dór opened a new fast food restaurant, a Belgian Style friterie (“Frietkot”/”Frituur”), dowtown 101 and it’s called ‘Reykjavik Chips’. Partners in crime are actor Arnar Dan Kristjánsson and gourmet man Hermann Óli Davíðsson. They have Belgian Fries (forget the French ones!) on the menu, served in the typical paper cones and you can choose out of wide variety of sauses (Andalusia, Harakiri, Hannibal & Samurai). And of course theys serve beer to go along.

Bring a visit and get a great taste of Belgium at Vitastígur 10, 101 Reykjavik. Bon appétit!
