101 Restaurant & Bar

27 Aug

EdamameOur first night in Reykjavik, we had dinner at our hotel. Prior to the meal at 101 Restaurant & Bar, we had let the restaurant know about my brother and I being gluten-free. We also presented gluten-free travel cards to our waitress when we sat down (We did this at every meal in Iceland). I started with the edamame which was pretty heavy on the salt. Our waitress then informed us that there was one dish that they could prepare GF as a main course. Since this was our one option, we both had the salmon with ratatouille.

Salmon with RatatouilleThis was good, although it would have been nice to have some other choices. In Icelandic schools, it is mandatory to learn Icelandic, English and a third language of their choice. For this reason, it was easier to communicate with restaurants than I had anticipated.
