Best Eats on an Icelandic Road Trip
Just because you're going on a road trip, doesn't mean your meals have to be lackluster.
Have you ever had a meal so good that you daydream about it - even when you're not feeling hungry? These are some bomb spots to grab a bite in Iceland.
Fish Market (Fiskmarkadurrin)
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.
What to Get: Fish of the day buffet.
What to get: Buffet
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.
What to Get: Latte
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.
Best Ice Cream
Valdis Ice Cream
What to Get: Ferrero Rochert Ice Cream
The Forrerro Rochet ice cream was dreamy. I regret not getting multiple scoops of it.
Best Late Night Cocktails
I'm a Texan, so of course I had to order nachos.
