Chow down on cheap bites in Iceland

1) Bastard Brew & Food

Bastard Brew & Food dishes up surprisingly ample portions on the cheap, making it a filling go-to for visitors in downtown Reykjavík. Small dishes perfect for sharing include tiger prawns, nachos with cheese dip, loaves of garlic bread, hummus and pesto, while single mains shift focus to meaty burgers, flatbreads and soft tacos. During summer, the outside porch is a relaxed spot for enjoying cocktails in good company. Bastard Brew & Food is decked out with hip and avant-garde paintings and often themes its menus according to the weekday, such as Taco Tuesdays and Gin & Tonic Wednesdays.
