Iceland 2017 Diary {Day 5}

7.06.2017

That Icelandic city vibes...

This day was all about exploring the city of Reykjavik and doing as many Icelandic tourist-y things as possible! We started it off with breakfast at the popular Sandholt Bakery and it was so, SO good! From the Croque Madame to the Vegetarian sandwich (with lava salt that you can also purchase there) to the tasty pastries, everything was quite satisfying. 
TIP: They have free wifi here so enjoy!

Then we walked around downtown for some souvenir shopping. Along the way, we stopped at the infamous Islendinger borda SS plysur hot dog stand where all they sell is the Icelandic hot dog and soda. That's it. And they had a line the whole time so you know it's good! The gravy sauce on top of the lamb dog with the surprise crunch underneath made a great compliment to each other. YUMS indeed. 

Another popular Icelandic dish is sheep head. Yes, you heard that right: sheep head. We really wanted to be open to trying new things on this trip and getting a feel of their culture so we went to get some at Fljott Og Gott. I know, it's not really appetizing to look at (trust me, that was hard for me too) but it wasn't too bad. It really does taste like sheep and probably would've been more enjoyable if there was a sauce to dip it with.
TIP: There's plenty so you can totally share this!

Afterwards, stop by the famous Hallgrimskirkja Reykjavik church. There was a Snapchat filter of this and I couldn't figure out what it was until I saw this. 

This day started with snow then sunshine then light rain and there was still some snow left in patches on the floor. So we couldn't resist to have a snowball fight! Haha good times.

Then we headed out to dinner in the city. Again, we really wanted to try as many popular dishes that are known in Iceland so we ordered the puffin bird, whale (really good with the sauce), salmon salad (so fresh), fish & chips, and fermented shark (super smelly!).
TIP: Food IS expensive in Iceland so going with a small group let's you sample more dishes without breaking the bank. 

Since this whole trip all started with the little sisteroo celebrating her 30th birthday extra early (it's not until December but we always get extremely busy around the holidays), she picked going Iceland to cross it off her bucket list. So we randomly went across the street to get dessert for a mini celebration. We ordered the Skyr yogurt (another popular thing to try in Iceland), creme brûlée, and hot lava chocolate cake. Everything was made in house and totally hit the sweet spot! 

Happy early 30th birthday Sudaroo - what a fun trip of a lifetime together!

Thanks for reading and sending you hugs!
