Local Icelandic Food

Icelandic food is fantastic – for the locals. For the foreign visitor it is perhaps not so good to eat. How about this menu. Singed sheep’s head, sour ram’s testicles, horse meat, puffin breasts, seal flippers, putrefied eggs and sheep brawn?

Fortunately there’s plenty of other local delicacies to choose from such as lamb and various kinds of freshly caught fish from the North Atlantic.

There’s over 400 restaurants in Reykjavik.

The typical fare at the finer restaurants in Iceland includes fish & lamb. Some of the fish served in restaurants includes salmon, trout, cod, haddock, plaice, halibut, blue ling, rose fish (ocean perch) and Atlantic woolf fish.

The lamb is some of the best in the world. Whole foods in the US and Canada offers Icelandic lamb for sale.
