Big Boats And Arctic Char

At the National Maritime Museum, Reykjavik

Husb and I have had a few days in Reykjavik, Iceland, a beautiful city. We strolled downtown in the crisp brilliant sunshine yesterday to take a look around the old dockland area. There are a lot of museums down there, the National Maritime, the Icelandic Saga and Northern Lights museums. And some lovely places to eat fresh fish too. We stopped for lunch at the Kaffi Vagninn, I stuck with standard fish and chips, delicious light batter and fluffy cod with a delicious selection of mayonnaise sauces. Husb had a gorgeous baked Arctic Char, lightly spiced on a bed of creamy, buttery sweet potato. The area is being redeveloped and it’s a lovely place to visit, walk around, eat and buy locally made goods.

      Oh it was so delicious. I went out and bought some fresh fish today, I’m inspired.

    I love your mouthwatering description of the food you ate. So yummy. I really miss the fresh fish dishes Iceland has to offer. 😀

      Oh yes, so gorgeous. We’re going to eat far more fish now. Everywhere we went we could small fish cooking – ate far too much and now we’re on diets!!!!
