Icelandic Bar

9 Pósthússtræti, Reykjavík

Tel: (+354) 578-2020

I can't wait to come back to Reykjavík if only to eat at the Icelandic Bar again. Expect traditional Icelandic dishes with a modern twist and a very lax atmosphere with an incredibly warm and intimate decor. Icelandic Bar is owned and run by three young friends and I loved that they were playing new music from Icelandic bands-- some of whom I recognized from the

Aldrei festival

. If you go, you must order the insanely addictive rhubarb mojito. 

Here's a sample of our menu:

  • Smoked arctic char from Mývatn, smoked eel, parsnip purée, lumpfish roes with lemon, angelica cracker, dill
  • Smoked lamb carpaccio with honey, beet root jam, nut crumble, horseradish, melon
  • White cabbage, fennel
  • Smoked minke whale, beet root jam, angelica cracker
  • Smoked puffin, rye bread crumble, blueberry compot, horseradish in a jar
  • Seared minke whale, brennivín glaze, glazed root vegetables, potato purée
  • Slow cooked lamb shank in own broth, dill, potato purée
  • Salted cod, smoked tomato jam, bacon, rye bread crumble, tomato confit

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHAT A PUFFIN IS :(
