Nudluskalin – Best Noodle Restaurant in Reykjavik

Nudluskalin is my favourite restaurant in Iceland. We stumbled into this place after a long day of hiking Glymur Falls and driving over to Thingvellir National Park, and Gulfoss.  Nudluskalin’s soup named ‘Noodles for the Soul’ was the perfect way to end our day. It’s located in downtown Reykjavik on the popular street of Skólavörðustígur. We love getting a seat by the window so we can people watch and see all the locals coming in for take-out.

My favourite dish in Nudluskalin is ‘Noodles for the Soul’.  It is a soup dish with a sour and spicy vegetable broth, garnished with cilantro. The broth really does warm me right to my soul and soothes my aching muscles after a long day of hiking. I loved this soup so much I made my own recipe trying to replicate it, if you’d like to give it a try click here.  My husband’s favourite dish is called ‘Noodles in a Fen’. It’s a dry, spicy noodle dish with a peanut buttery sauce, garnished with cilantro. If you’re worried about the heat, you can choose your level of spice when you order. The price for these noodles is reasonable by Icelandic standards.  One order is 1,890 Icelandic Kronas, just under $23 cad. If you order it without meat, you can save a couple more Kronas.

Nudluskalin looks small from the outside, but there’s additional seating upstairs. When you visit, place your order at the bar and they will call your name once it’s ready. So make sure to keep an ear out for your name. We don’t usually eat in restaurants in Iceland but we make an exception for Nudluskalin. We like to treat ourselves once in a while and it’s a plus that their Wi-Fi signal is pretty good.
