Best Reykjavik Fast Food

Since 2009 there has been no McDonalds in Iceland, which is not to say they don't have typical US fast food joints at all, they do.

They also have they're own versions, Metro for instance is a burger and fries caper that the old McDonalds franchise runs. It's basically McDonalds with a different name.

Ignore them all as it is in Reykjavik that you'll visit the best hotdog stand ever.

Queue of people stand waiting to be order at the original Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur hotdog stand (Reykjavik, Iceland)

So good that they are also at the airport and around the capital city, although make sure you go to the original.

Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur (translated to The best in town) has been doing what it does since 1937 having be setup by the grandfather of the current owner, Guðrún Kristmundsdóttir.
While most hot dogs in the world are made out of pork or beef, the hot dogs here are made from lamb meat.

The sauces and sides are also something to shout bravo for!

You can have a hot dog with homemade crispy onions and sweet mustard, along with raw onion, ketchup and remoulade.

The ketchup is actually made from apples instead of glucose, which makes it so nice and kinda sweet.

When Bill Clinton visited Iceland back in 2004, he made a total of 3 visits and I think I was the same, maybe even more.

I can tell you their hot dogs are perfect after a beer or two.

In August 2006 The Guardian selected Bæjarins Beztu as the best hot dog stand in Europe. I agree.


Mmmmm, I am salivering at just the thought of one ....
