Icelanders are known for a quite humorous mixture of the most amazing cuisine and then, some of the worst. Somewhere in between scrumptious seafood and incredible lamb dishes you’ll find things like a sheep head and ram testicles.
However, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you’ll find fermented shark or a minke whale on the plate of the average Icelander on a regular Tuesday but, some will enjoy it from time to time, especially during festivals like a Thorrablot (an old Viking feast tradition in February). Still, there do remain some traces from the olden times that are still considered proper food today, enjoyed daily. To help guide you through this abundance of options, the good and the bad, I have put together a list of the must-tries. Some of which more demanding on the tastebuds than others but all worthy of your attention!
