Food Diary: Iceland

If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you probably know that I like to document the food I eat while on vacation. I took photos of pretty much all my meals while in Iceland so here’s my recap by day! Note: I only took photos of breakfast for the first two days because it was hotel breakfast so my plate from the breakfast buffet was pretty much the same each day.

Day 1

I stayed at the Hilton Reykjavic Nordica and had breakfast there each day. It was a buffet spread and I typically ate the same thing each day. Fruit, salami, smoked lamb, smoked salmon, sometimes an egg, sometimes bacon, sometimes a pastry.

At Penninn Eymundsson, I got a mocha coffee.

We. got an early dinner at Snaps Bistro since we’d been up for over 24 hours.

My cousin and I shared a baked camembert appetizer. For my entree I got the duck confit and for dessert we shared the french chocolate cake and creme brulee.

Day 2

Breakfast (see above for my description)

For lunch we got a quick bite at Kaffi Duus after the Blue Lagoon and before heading to Thingvellir National Park. I got a club sandwich.

For dinner we ate late at the hotel restaurant, Vox Brasserie. For an appetizer, my cousin and I shared a caesar salad which was so big that my dad ate some of it too. For my entree I got the veal schnitzel. For dessert, my mom, cousin, and I shared the sorbet.

Day 3

Skipping the breakfast photos from here on out since I basically at the same thing! For lunch we stopped at Thai Sakhon in a small town after the lava tunnel and before off-roading buggy ride. I got the chicken pad thai.

For dinner we went to Fish House Bar & Grill and I got the fish & chips.

Day 4

We went to two different waterfalls that morning and I got a hot chocolate at one of them.

The meeting point for the ice cave tour was inside Black Crust Pizza in Vik so we ate there for lunch. We got one pie that had pepperoni, mushroom, pepper, and olives. The other was cherry tomato, mozzarella, and basil (basically a margherita).

For dinner we ate at Strondin Pub. I had the beet salad for my starter and I got the lamb chops for dinner. For dessert I had the chocolate brownie and a bit of my cousin’s kahlua creme brulee.

Day 5

We ate lunch at Frideheimar – the restaurant on the popular tomato farm. It was all you can eat bread from the bread table, and a few of us shared a couple dishes – the burrata, ravioli, sorbet, and apple & tomato pie. I also ate some of the mussels my dad ordered, but that’s not pictured. They’re famous for their tomato soup which a few people in my group ordered but I did not.

For dinner we ate at Italia and shared the garlic bread and fried zucchini as appetizers. I ordered the carbonara for my entree.

Day 6

After breakfast on our last day we walked to Braude & Co, a bakery to get some goodies to bring home since we were flying out that evening.

At the airport we grabbed a late lunch and ate pizza which was actually really good.

That wraps up my vacation eats! My top favorites were probably the baked camembert, duck confit, and black crust pizza!
