The reputation of Icelandic health food chain Gló is starting to spread outside Iceland. A long time love of local foodies Gló receives a glowing mention in the Guardian’s travel section last weekend when writer Kate Magic chose the restaurant as her favourite raw food spot in Europe.

The chef behind Gló, Solla Eiríks, has been at the forefront of the health food movement in Iceland for almost two decades. You can not only eat at her Gló restaurants but also pick up products called Himneskt (Heavenly) at many supermarkets.

Gló has one restaurant off Laugavegur street in downtown Reykjavík and three others in the capital area.
