Thai Restaurant in Iceland Offers Free Meal

By Iceland Review

The owners of the restaurant Thai Keflavík in Reykjanesbaer municipality, southwest Iceland, have decided to offer guests a free meal tomorrow evening to lighten the load on those who are suffering during these difficult times.

Magnús Heimisson, the operational manager of the restaurant and one of its owners, told Fréttabladid, that if tomorrow’s initiative proves successful, Thai Keflavík will offer free meals on one evening per month until summer. “And then it will always be at the end of the month when people are in a tight spot.”

Heimisson said many things have to be organized so that such an initiative can take place but that most people are willing to contribute. “I have been collecting fish, noodles and rice and I have asked family members to help. We are especially grateful for having received the fish at such a fair price.”

If Thai Keflavík isn’t large enough for everyone who is interested in a free meal to dine there at the same time, then people are also invited to take the free meal home with them between 5 pm and 8 pm.

Heimisson said that although “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” is a well-known phrase in finance, “different rules apply to dinner.”
