Just because you're going on a road trip, doesn't mean your meals have to be lackluster.

What to Get: Cod

Fiskmarkadurrin is the kind of meal that you try to replicate unsuccessfully in the comfort of your home. Oh my cod - the cod had a glaze that had the savory flavor of unami and the taste of fruit. My mouth is watering thinking of it.

The Icelandic seem to love their buffets - & I love it. Normally, the buffet is rather expensive (60 euros), but it was the end of the day and the kind waitress gave us a discount. Do not under estimate the power of 4 hungry girls.

Best Coffee
Reykjavik Roasters
Where? Reykjavik
What to Get: Latte
Price: $

The baristas her are NOT messing around. This was the coffee I was craving the entire trip. After averaging 4 hours of sleep each night, I needed this to power through my last day.
