Being one of Reykjavík's oldest joints, Prikið feels somewhere between diner and saloon, which is great if you’re up for greasy eats (mains 2000kr to 4000kr) and socialising. Things get hip-hop dance-y in the wee hours, and if you survive the night, it’s popular for its next-day ‘hangover killer’ breakfast (3000kr).
