Adventures in Food: Icelandic Hotdogs | Experience Delicious

Downtown Reykjavik waiting in line for the best hot-dog of my life! The classic mustard chili cheese dog from the Wiener Factory is a close second…

Adventures in food is exactly how it sounds – it’s all about trying something new! This past spring I visited Iceland and the number one must try food is a hotdog.

This is the place all the locals recommend!

Free from the “junk food” stigma we have for hotdogs in the US, in Iceland, hotdogs are widely available at eateries across the country from restaurants to gas stations. Icelandic hotdogs may also prove to be one of the least expensive meals, even with the cost equivalent of around $4.00 per dog.

Made from grass fed, hormone free animals, this delicious hotdog is made from lamb with some pork and beef.

From the meat that the hotdog it is made from, to the texture of each bite (tender on the inside with a natural sausage-like casing on the outside) the dog itself is delicious. But what makes this dog different from anything I have ever tasted is the way the hotdog is dressed.

An Icelandic hotdog with all the trimmings includes ketchup, sweet brown mustard, a mayonnaise based remoulade sauce, raw white onions, and crispy fried onions topped on a subtle, tender bun – it’s so delicious you cannot eat just one!

When in Iceland, be sure to try one… or two!

My kids love Halloween.  It's one of their favorite holidays. And what's not to love? They get to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and eat lots of candy. But as a parent, I know that Halloween can also be a sugar overload for kids. So I like to make sure my...
