Eina með öllu

14 01 2013

The most popular restaurant in Iceland is a hot dog stand. Clearly this is meant to be my home!

It is believed that the majority of Icelanders have eaten at Bæjarins beztu pylsur (literally “the best hot dogs in town”) which has been operating since 1937 and is the most popular restaurant. Foreign visitors are often brought to the stand by locals to introduce them to the hot dogs there, which are often called “the Icelandic national food.” The most famous person to have a pylsa is Bill Clinton.

Icelanders are crazy about hot dogs and even more crazy about sauces!

A hot dog costs 320 krónas (or about $2) and condiments include ketchup, sweet mustard, fried onion, raw onion and remoulade, a mayonnaise-based sauce with sweet relish. Hot dogs are often ordered with “the works,” i.e., all condiments, or in Icelandic “eina með öllu”.
