Item: Fish and chips in Iceland
Date: January 28, 2014
Location: Icelandic Fish & Chips, Reykjavik, Iceland
During my stay in Iceland, I felt like everything in this country is perfect, even its fish and chips. Fish and chips? Yes, with an Icelandic spin. On the menu: fried ling with crispy potatoes and tartar skyronnes. A “skyronne” is a dipping sauce, and I should have guessed from the name that it’s made out of skyr, an Icelandic favourite, similar to yogurt. And the fish…I’m not sure how it could taste so fresh and delicious and NOT overly greasy like typical fried fish. The drink was called “our own fresh soda, made with ginger, lemon, and Stevia topped up with sparkling water”. Awesome!
