While most giant tourist destinations have a wealth of fast food, large chain, and mainly undesirable eating options, The Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik shows off a real gem of upscale dining. The restaurant is called LAVA and it has views of stuff like this -
The main offerings during lunch are the Icelandic and Seafood set menus, both of which will be presented in this blog post. Without further ado, here we go.
The meal starts off with a delightful bread plate, with butter served on a pitch black lava rock. I'm not sure why, but I want more condiments to be served over lava rocks now.
The Icelandic char was a real highlight. It tasted immensely fresh.
This langoustine soup was perfectly seasoned. I wouldn't have complained if repeated servings of this was the full meal.
Icelandic folks know what the hell to do with fish, and it shows right here.
This lamb is so tender that you could cut it with a thought. I was very impressed.
You don't need me to describe how good this is. Just look at it. You get the idea.
Im sitting in surprise city, wondering how an Icelandic creme brulee beats almost all the ones I had in France.
