“FastFood! For a little (fast food) taste of Mexico, and really the only good Mexican food you can get in Iceland, Serrano is the place to go to. Founded by two locals after travels south of the border, Serrano emphasizes fresh, healthy, quality food and they succeed in doing so. Think of a healthier version of Chipotle. Go to dishes: Cajun Burrito with a side of everything else that’s on the menu.”
