The Glo Restaurant, Reykjavik (Iceland)

by jem614
Mama Veg: The Glo` Restaurant really does “glow”. On a side street, one ascends an unassuming staircase to enter the delightful Glo` Restaurant, a real, live, vegetarian restaurant in downtown Reykjavik. The dishes are well presented and the aromas tease the senses. I tried the vegetable soup with spelt bread. The soup was blended with a slight curry flavor and the hummus was coarsely ground and appeared to include cucumber and red peppers and was the best I have ever tasted. I am going back tomorrow to try the pecan pie and cappuccinos. I am sure I won’t be disappointed.

Some of the dishes are vegan & the staff was pleasant and helpful. They said people often take photos of their food displays and that people say their friends “back home” told them to stop by the restaurant during their visit in Reykjavik. Apparently the restaurant is truly world famous. My aunt lived in Reykjavik for several years many years ago while working for the U.S. Navy as a civilian employee. I think she would probably not recognize downtown Reykjavik now. Today it is full of many intriguing little shops and restaurants.Next time you pass through Reykjavik, stop by and enjoy the delectable dishes in the Glo’ Restaurant!

Tullin’s Cafe, Oslo (Norway)

by jem614

What things have you eaten around the world that you think are unique to where you live?  Mama Veg just found this incredible Veggie Quesadilla all the way in Norway!

Mama Veg: The Vegetarian Quesadillas were quite good and the atmosphere was very chill.  The quesadillas had cheese, corn, zucchini squash pieces (interesting) and some kind of tomato sauce.  The bar tender/waitress was impressed that we (Veg-on-the-Run) are international!  She was sweet and very helpful.  The corn chips had 3 dips:  salsa, sour cream and guacamole. The food was plentiful and the cheese was tasty and creamy. A great take on a quasi-mexican dish!
Happy Eating in Oslo!  For more info on Tullin’s Cafe, go to http://www.tullins.no/

Espresso House, Downtown Oslo (Norway)

by jem614

Mama Veg is travelling and we asked her to send us some great veggie places she’s found along the way so we can bring them to you!

Mama Veg: On my way home from visiting Kurdistan, I stopped in Oslo, Norway for some sight seeing and checked out The Espresso House.  T.E.H. is in downtown Oslo, just a few blocks from Royal Palace. The cappuccino I had was one of the best I have ever had!  The pastries looked scrumptious and everything was fresh.  The servers were friendly and the atmosphere was quiet and pleasant.  There were several vegetarian options in salads and sandwiches, a definite must for visiting Oslo.

The Espresso House can be found all over Oslo: http://www.espressohouse.com/hitta-oss/norge/oslo/
