Directions to Rub 23
Rubv23 is a seafood restaurant in Reykjavik (and Akureyri) with an impressive selection of fish species, and a wide variety of sushi and meat courses. There is one thing that seperates Rubv23 from other Icelandic restaurants, and that is the diverse construction of the menu and prepared spice mixtures for the customer to choose from. „Rub' has become a common term for mixed spices that are rubbed into the ingredients, as the name implies. That way, costumers can choose a certain ingredient, fish species and then choose from a list of spice mixtures they want to try out.
Rub 23 opened for the first time in june, in Akureyri, but quite recently they opened another branch in Reykjavik. Rub 23 offer a variety of simple and exciting options for a broad range of customers. It's open during lunch time and dinnertime, with seperate menus for both occasions. Try some of the Maki rolls on the lunch menu for a reasonable price, or the very exciting sushi pizza!
The dinner menu is straight forward and easy. You choose your favorite fish or meat, and a rub to go with it. There are many exciting fish options, for example cod, catfish, salted cod, artic char, turbot, salmon and flounder. If you're not into fish you can choose from beef rib eye, fillet of lamb or a chicken breast. As for spices your options are anything but limited. The list includes magic pepper, garlic coriander, citrus rosemary, creola, arabian, indian, asian, smoked BBQ, garden herb, sweet mango chili and soya lemon. All dishes are served with a potato mix and a salad. The desert menu is also quite appetizing.
If you enjoy excellent seasoning and rich spices, fresh fish and succulent meat, and find yourself in Akureyri or Reykjavik, you should not let Rub 23 pass you by.
