Now let’s talk about the food.
Among the several restaurants we tried around Reykjavik, I enjoyed Fish Company the most. The ambience, service, and menu were excellent. I love seafood and unless you’re in sunny Europe, getting hold of fresh and quality fish can be difficult. Iceland proved me wrong! Fish Company, specifically, satisfied my seafood craving. The choices for starters, main course, desserts, and wine were plentiful! The bill did hurt my pocket. *cries
For early birds who like to start their trips and activities soon after breakfast, finding a breakfast place can be tricky especially if you’re staying in an Airbnb accommodation. One of our road trips entailed waking up at around 6:00 so we could reach west Iceland before lunch time. I did a quick online look at breakfast places in Reykjavik that are open from 7:00 and I found Bergsson Mathús. It was a trendy and filling experience!
Another must-try (although I wouldn’t say it’s the best hot dog in Iceland) is a popular hot dog stand in the heart of Reykjavik called Baejarins Beztu Pylsur.
When you’re out of the city or on a road trip, stop by local restaurants too! We got lost around Laugarvatn and decided to stop by and try a random bakery and restaurant with steamed and smoked dishes as their specialties. I forgot the name for some reason and I couldn’t find any information about the restaurant due its remote location. The steam is produced as part of a natural volcanic activity commonly experienced in Iceland and some locals and businesses use it for cooking.
