Sægreifinn The Sea Baron - Reykjavík, IS

Sægreifinn or Seabaron is a little seafood shack on the marina in Reykjavík, Iceland. This is also the place where I discovered my love for malt drinks. I came for the lobster stew. A local resident, I was chatting with earlier in my visit, spoke about this shack passionately.

Lobster Stew (1,100 ISK; approx $9.45 CAD)

Bakari Sandholt Bakery - Reykjavik, IS

Bakari Sandholt is a bakery in Reykjavík, Iceland. They have some incredible looking sweet treats, but I’m here for something a bit more substantial. With only four hours or so of daylight during the winter months, I always feel as though I’m eating dinner.

Café Paris - Reykjavík, IS

Internet. It seems we can’t live our lives without it. It wasn’t that long ago when internet was not so readily available. Remember modems? Iceland is a country where everyone freely embraces and understands the need for internet and technology. Every business, no matter how small, has a slick website and free WiFi is common and easy to find. That’s what brought us to Café Paris in Reykjavík this morning. We needed a place to work, check mail and eat.

Café Loki - Reykjavík, IS

Café Loki is located directly in front of the Hallgrimskirkja (the big church) in Reykjavík. It offers some traditional treats of Iceland, such as smoked lamb and fermented shark. It looks a bit like a Hong Kong style café inside. I chose a table in front of the window, with a great view of the Leif Ericson statue and the church. The service is very welcoming and friendly.

Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur: Icelandic Hot Dog - Reykjavik, IS

Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur – Reykjavik, Iceland
*UPDATE December 2012: price of hotdog is now 320 ISK*

Hotdogs are things that I eat on the go, or when I’m at a child friendly summer barbeque. I've eaten a lot of dogs, but I don’t often crave them unless I find myself on Burrard Street near Japadog. On the plane ride to Iceland, one of the adverts on the seat-back screen said the most popular restaurant in Iceland was a hotdog stand. It didn’t’ say which one but it didn’t take much digging to find the name: Bæjarins Beztu.
