This is one of my favorite places in Reykjavík. A little corner store
that services the neighborhood west of Tjörnin
near the Hólavallagarður cemetery
and the Grund nursing home
It manages to squeeze in a ton of products into a tiny space. Not just snack foods, but fresh fruit and veg as well. It is a very homey place, with local art and culture complementing the store’s regular products:
One thing that is big about Kjötborg are the hearts of the two brothers who run it and who have made it their life, persevering in the face of modern competition and changing times.
There is a wonderful documentary about the store on Vimeo
