On the second night I went to a restaurant called Tapas Barin for dinner, which features a Gourmet Icelandic Tasting Feast. Boy was it delicious! The feast features seven courses, outlining favourites from Iceland.
First up was a shot of Brennivin, which is a potato spirit infused with cumin. It was intense, for sure.
Next was the smoked puffin dish, which was really tasty. (And yes I know puffins are adorable but so are piglets and lambs and calves) It reminded me of smoked salmon but a bit gamier.
Next was the sea trout dish, which was probably my least favourite out of the bunch. Still tasty but kind of boring in comparison to the other dishes.
The third dish was lobster tails, and this was oh so delicious! I love lobster, and this was perfectly baked in garlic and butter, yum yum.
Next up was another fish dish, the pan fried blue ling. This one was pretty tasty, probably due to the lobster sauce over it. Hehe.
The second to last dish was grilled lamb, which for the first time ever I can say I enjoyed a lamb dish!
And last but not least was the minke whale steak, which was my favourite dish! Perfectly cooked and just melted in my mouth.
All of this was accompanied by delicious bread with hummus and the largest glass of Sangria I have ever seen.
As you can see, this was ALOT of food for one little person. I could have easily shared the feast with someone, but I sure did enjoy it AND of course there is always room for dessert 😛
As you should know by now, food is a big part of my life AND travels. So taking the time to try all these dishes and have this culinary experience, really is a great memory from my Iceland trip. All that was missing was a foodie friend to enjoy it with, but in this case, my kindle held up pretty well 😉
