Icelandic hot dog

Vicky is back from her trip around Iceland, and while it wasn't the most epic culinary journey, the infamous hot dog from the Bæjarins beztu stand was a pretty good first bite in Reykjavik.

A vegan friendly spot

Vicky's travel buddy was vegan, which proved tricky in a country where lamb, yogurt, and fish prevail. Gló is a great spot that specializes in healthy vegan and vegetarian options, but includes a daily meaty dish (usually chicken) as well.

The lobster soup at Café Nielsen in the Eastfjords city of Egilsstadir was super rich and, though you can't tell from the photo, had huge chunks of lobster swimming in a buttery broth.

At the Hotel Langaholt on the Snæfellsnes peninsula, the homemade bread was the thing to try. Throw some cheese, gravlax, and veggies on top of this sweet and rustic rye bread and you've got yourself a great breakfast.
